Our Favorite One-Tank Road Trips from Dallas-Fort Worth!
Hop in Your New Ford F-150 and Hit the Highway for a Day or Weekend of Fun
After you buy a 2021 Ford F-150 from our Ford dealership in Itasca, Texas, you’ll want to see what it’s capable of – and how comfortable it is! Going on a quick road trip for the day or weekend is a great way to show off your truck and experience its features.
So, fill up the gas tank, pack a bag of snacks and other necessities, and enter your destination into your phone GPS on one of our favorite one-tank road trips from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Stay in the City and Visit the Bishop Arts District
Just southwest of the Dallas Downtown Historic District, the Bishop Arts District offers tons of fun experiences, from nightlife, boutique shopping, art, and awesome food.
Watch a cult classic film at the Texas Theatre and catch live music at Kessler Theater after enjoying BBQ or pho for dinner. Grab a cocktail or craft brew at one of many laid-back, casual bars after the show.
You really can make a day of your visit to the Bishop Arts District, and it’s not far from home at all.
Visit Deep Ellum in Your Ford Truck
Another gem in the city is Deep Ellum, directly east of downtown and home to yet another vibrant entertainment district.
Experience live indie and blues at one of its many concert venues or bars. Pay a visit to a few art galleries, and tuck in to a meal at one of many hip Tex-Mex eateries.
The Undermain Theatre, located in a warehouse basement, offers experimental drama that can’t be missed.
Cap off your day with a visit to the Deep Ellum Brewing Company for tastings and a tour.
Lake Worth and the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge
On the opposite end of the sister cities from Deep Ellum lies Lake Worth and a nearby nature center.
The Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge consists of a variety of animal habitats including prairies and wetlands across 3,621 acres. Hike 20 miles of trails and glimpse wildlife including deer, armadillo, coyotes, a variety of birds, and much more.
This serene setting is ideal for spending a day communing with the great outdoors. After you’re done hiking, eat at one of the area’s many scenic restaurants on the water.
Visit the Gaines Empire in Waco
Head due south to Waco to experience all-things Magnolia, from Chip and Joanna Gaines. For fans of Fixer Upper, Magnolia Market at the Silos, its accompanying bakery, and all other things farmhouse chic, are within reach from the Dallas-Forth Worth area. The market encompasses two full city blocks.
And while Waco probably wasn’t on your list of places to visit before it got Gaines-ified, it’s a fun, touristy experience that’s worth a day trip.
Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Trailway
In the heart of Texas cattle country, Lake Mineral Wells State Park offers a full spectrum of outdoor amenities and attractions, including a lake, rock climbing, and miles of trails, just 45 minutes west of Fort Worth.
Visitors to the park enjoy camping, hiking, biking, geocaching, and lake leisure activities. Put the towing capacity of your new Ford F-150 to good use and haul in your own horses for some trail riding or your boat for fishing on the lake.
Trails from easy to challenging provide plenty of adventure, and if you’re feeling more daring, scale the natural rock face of Penitentiary Hollow.
