Getaways From Dallas

Riverside Escape in Salado, Texas

Enjoy lazy days in this charming creek-side town.

Salado Creek cuts through this restful stop off of Highway 35. Along with a relaxing overnight at a historic inn or bed and breakfast, travelers can browse antique shops and boutiques, take walks in shady parks by the water, and have lazy lunches at outdoor tables for two.

1

Stagecoach Inn

Travelers can stay in one of 82 poolside rooms or spa suites at this historic property, originally founded in 1861, though some people just stop in for a romantic dinner. The restaurant serves up dishes made from generations-old recipes—chicken fried steak; housemade gravy—that have been passed down through Texas families. Rooms also have coffee makers and complimentary WiFi.

2

Johnny’s Steaks and Bar-Be-Que

Stop in this rustic, stone-walled restaurant for Mesquite-grilled steaks.
3

Alexander’s Distillery

This restaurant is located on the Inn on the Creek grounds, anchored by an 1882 Victorian House. The cozy dining room has a global menu—you’ll find guacamole and blue kettle chips with truffle oil, grilled Veracruz-style red drum and honey Dijon chicken—and live jazz every Saturday night.

Classics on Main

You’ll find hand-blown gas works, wood furnishings, paintings and sculptures by Texas artists at this well-curated gallery.
