Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from Dallas/Fort Worth is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a two-hour drive of Dallas/Fort Worth.

Do something delicious: Drive to Gainesville for fried pie and sopapilla cheesecake, Nocona for tomatillo enchiladas, and Athens for "cakeballs."

Do something musical: Visit Denton, known for its thriving music scene, or Pilot Point, a tiny piece of the Old West where the fiddlers on the square are as authentic as you'll find.

Do something cultural: Visit a museum of South and Central American artifacts in Weathorford; or Waco's fascinating Texas Ranger Hall of Fame Museum.
