Finding some time with the family can be tough, sure, but finding fun things to do together isn’t Dallas is full of cool family activities, like:
The Dallas Arboretum
Trust us, kids love the Arboretum. This colorful oasis from the big city is a literal breath of fresh air, and some of the flora is alien-looking enough to intrigue even those most prone to saying “I’m booooored!” Interactive exhibits and hands-on places around the Arboretum make it extra fun.
The Perot Science Museum
Kid or kid at heart, Dallas’s 21st century answer to Philly’s famed Franklin Institute is a for-real wonderland. Just try to spend an hour there and have nothing to do. You and the family can explore space, dinosaurs, and even the world of sports before lunch (if you hurried, and you wouldn’t). Skating at the Galleria Yes, the Galleria is a shopping Mecca in Dallas, but its centerpiece is the always-frosty skating rink open to the public. Take lessons or rent the rink for a private skate with the family.
Sports, Sports, Sports
With absolutely no shortage of pro, college, and semi-pro sports, Dallas is a perfect place to take the kids to the game. The city has four major sports teams in all seasons, so you’ll never have to wait to get a seat.
Zero Gravity Thrill Park
Feeling adventurous? Take the family to Zero Gravity, where the adrenaline alone will make the day. The park has “extreme” rides like the Slingshot and the Bungee Jump for those who dare (mwahahahahahaaaaa).
