Check out these fun ideas in Dallas you can do when family comes into town or if you just need something to do.

Fun Ideas in Dallas

  • Legoland Discovery Center Grapevine
  • Grapevine Aquarium
  • Crayola Experience (Plano)
  • Pinstack Bowling
  • Klyde Warren Park~ a park built over an interstate in the heart of downtown Dallas! It’s so cool!

Have you done any on this list? As a family, we have done lots of these and there are more that I definitely want to try!  A great summer activity that really wears the kids out and is different is the wakeboard park in Allen. There is also one in Lewisville too. This is one you need to check out with your kids. They offer day camps all summer long! It’s great for kids of all ages and even beginners. It’s one my kids really love and they’ve gotten several friends to try it out too!
