Skate, Create, and Meditate this Spring Break

Audrey Miranda | Assistant Director of Marketing March 4th, 2024

Make Galleria Dallas your Spring Break destination! With a ton of family-friendly activities and things to do, bring the whole family for an adventure indoors!

While you're here check out our Instagrammable moments throughout the shopping center. Galleria Blooms - our cascading garden of over 375 blooms is over the Ice Rink. Snap, post and tag @GalleriaDallas in your photos at our Be Love Wall. And take a step outside to see artist Alli K's newest mural outside Nordstrom.

The Dallas Arboretum's A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words Gallery Wall is on display - stop by and learn about their programming and sneak a peek at their tulips. Also, Cookie Box Creations, an installation created by local Girl Scouts, is on view through March 23. This year they created larger than life board games - chess, Candyland, Clue and Battleship - out of cookie boxes!
