On the first day of market, you feel your best. You have pep. You feel rested, and you're wearing your favorite shirt or dress. By the end of the day though, after all that walking, you feel sapped of energy, and you can't imagine tackling the Dallas Market Center again the next day.

While you may feel like crawling into bed by 8 p.m., there are plenty of cool places to relax and destress right around the Dallas Market Center. Here are our top five places to relax during Lightovation and the Total Home & Gift Market.

Vis-à-Vis Uptown

Ever wanted to float on air? Check out the Vis-à-Vis Uptown Spa's floating therapy while you're in Dallas. Spa goers step into a fiberglass capsule filled with 10.5 inches of heated, sanitized water and Dead Sea and Epsom salt. The water combination pushes the body towards the surface so that it floats like a cork, allowing you to lay back and relax without fear of sinking. This therapy boasts better sleep, less stress, better skin quality and better immunity as just a few of its benefits. Online book is available at www.spavisavis.com.

Two Corks and a Bottle

After a long day of walking, a glass of wine can be just what the doctor ordered. Two Corks and a Bottle offers a fine selection of wines and small bites plates for you and your fellow market goers to enjoy. The wine bar's extensive wine list covers everything from fruity wines to unique specialties, so you're certain to find something you love. Two Corks and a Bottle also allows food from other vendors, so you can order from other local restaurants and wait for it while you enjoy your wine.

Located less than two miles away from Dallas Market Center, Candle Nail & Spa offers a variety of great services for the weary market goer. The spa's professional manicurists and pedicurists will pamper your hands and toes, helping you relieve the stress of the day walking around the market. Candle Nail & Spa also offers massage services as well as facials and waxing, so you'll feel refreshed and relaxed when you head back to the market the next day.

Trinity Strand Trail

The last thing you may want to do in Dallas is walk outside, especially in the summertime, but this great hiking trail serves as a relaxing, return-to-nature break. Best of all, it's right outside Dallas Market Center. The Trinity Strand Trail is 2.5 miles of gorgeous urban trail that winds its way through the Dallas Design District. When you need a short break during market, stretch your legs and get a little vitamin D on the trail. You'll feel refreshed and ready to hit the market again.
