Looking for Instagrammable places in Dallas?
Well this post has been a long time coming!
I’ve lived in Dallas for almost 4 years and have been an Instagram Influencer for almost 2 years.
Within that time, I’ve discovered plenty of places that have made it on to my Instagram because of their beauty.
But it definitely hasn’t been easy.
Recently I’ve had the mindset that this city isn’t very Instagrammable.
There aren’t enough colorful houses or buildings, for one.
We aren’t near mountains or the beach.
There’s not a whole lot of nature.
But when making this post, I’ve realized there are plenty of gram-worthy spots in this city. You just need to look hard enough to find them!
The challenge is worth it!
It forces me to use my creativity muscle, and each new place I find brings me so much joy!
Sure, you could go through my Instagram and pick out the Dallas posts, but I figured I’d make it much easier for you!
So without further ado, I bring you the 40 most Instagrammable places in Dallas!
PARKS & NATURE
1. White Rock Lake Docks
This is the biggest lake in the immediate Dallas area and it offers so many different photo opportunities! The docks at the lake are especially Instagrammable.
2. Around White Rock Lake
While you’re at White Rock Lake, don’t miss out on the potential for safari-like views!!
It requires a bit of location-scouting and vision, but it’s doable! I’m actually right next to the road in this photo!
3. Lynn Creek Park
I love this spot because it is one of the few places where you can find sand in Dallas! But there is plenty to do at Lynn Creek Park besides relax in the sand and take photos! Check out these fun activities!
4. Rock Creek Park at Lake Grapevine
You’ll find this cool spot a little bit of a drive away from Dallas. There is an entrance fee but it’s worth it! Make an afternoon out of it by bringing a picnic!
5. Cedar Ridge Preserve
This is a recent discover that I can’t wait to return to! Cedar Ridge Preserve is free to enter and this spot requires a hike. How incredible is this view, though?
6. Lakeside Park
This is hands-down one of my favorite parks in Dallas. My husband, Harrison, actually proposed to me here! Read this post to see all of the different areas of Lakeside Park.
7. The Dallas Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum is one of my go-to places when finding a photo spot. And this reflecting pool is definitely my favorite spot at the Arboretum!
8. Flippen Park
Prettiest gazebo in Dallas, hands down. Check out more here!
9. Turtle Creek Parks
See more angles of these beautiful parks on this post!
11. The Harbor Rockwall
Rockwall is a bit outside of Dallas but offers the prettiest lighthouse view!
12. Lovers Lane DART Station
13. Lemmon Lake railroad
I call this the Lemmon Lake railroad because we discovered it while looking for Lemmon Lake (which we never found).
The actual location of this railroad is on Simpson Stuart Rd. This is an active rail road, so be safe!
