Alone in Dallas this weekend. What are some activities I can do here minus the bar/club scene?

Well do a simple websearch on Visiting Dallas and you'll probably be taken to the Dallas Visitors & Convention Bureau...they've lots of links. There's plenty of museums of interest if that's your cup of tea. The DMOA downtown always features some interesting things. 6th Floor Museum features everything you can imagine on the Kennedy Assassination, Antiques, arts & collectibles along the arts district.... live music... shopping.... the Arboretum...the Aquarium....the zoo... what is it you're looking for? Just websearch visit Dallas and you'll find lots of things.

Good Luck!

What part of the Metroplex are you staying in? Do you have a car? Some things may be more convenient to get to than others.

But, as others have mentioned, the downtown museums/attractions -- the 6th Floor Museum, Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Crow Museum of Asian Art, the Perot Museum of Science and Nature, the Dallas World Aquarium -- are all fine to go to by yourself. You can grab something to eat at Lark in the Park, the new eatery that just opened at the Klyde Warren Park, the new greenspace that links downtown and Uptown. Or, from there, you can take the free trolley into Uptown and get off at Lemmon Ave. near West Village where there are lots of restaurants where you can get something to eat.

Once there, the Dallas International Film Festival continues through Sunday, and there may be some screenings left at the Magnolia Theater in West Village (there were last week at least). You could catch a movie that you may not get the chance to see otherwise. Dallas International Film Festival | April 4-14, 2013

On the northeast side of Dallas are the Arboretum and White Rock Lake which are fun to places to hang out especially when the weather is nice like it is this weekend.

If you like small, unique shops, there's the Bishop Arts District in North Oak Cliff.

Good luck!
