DFW Outdoor Experience Gift Ideas

DFW Outdoor Experience Gift Ideas

This year, give the gift of outdoor adventures and Explore More of what DFW has to offer! We want to get out and explore our city so we put together this list for you for some local outdoor experience gift ideas. We have been gifting classes/workshops and tickets for years and love it! Sometimes, we all agree to forgo gifts all together and go on a ski trip instead. We have some family friends who have tradition of buying one experience per couple for the whole family to enjoy together. Whatever you choose to do, don't forget to always support local! 

  1. An ExploreMore event voucher: This voucher is discounted from the normal ticket price and is good for one ticket to one of our outdoor hike and yoga or hike, yoga and brew event.
