Kid-Friendly Attractions in Dallas, Texas

July 16, 2014 10:02 am

Take the kids for a break from the fast pace of Dallas at one of these peaceful and awe-inspiring museums. Both are just minutes away from the city, so the kids won't complain about a long car ride, and a visit will open their eyes to the wonderful world of nature!

Dallas World Aquarium
Immerse yourself and your children in an underwater world at Dallas World Aquarium. Located in the West End Historic District of downtown, this facility is home to some of the most unique and endangered species on the planet. Get up close to a wattled jacana, or visit a spectacled owl in the eight-story Mundo Maya exhibit. Be sure to take part in one of the aquarium's fun and educational tours or workshops. Not limited to creatures of the water, the Dallas World Aquarium doubles as a zoo where the kids can learn a thing or two about amazing animals from around the world.

Dallas Arboretum
The beautiful Dallas Arboretum is truly a treat for the eyes. The museum's gardens cover 66 acres of land, and every inch is dedicated to sharing a view of trees and plants from around the world. One of the largest exhibits includes the DeGolyer estate, a gorgeous Spanish-style home and its surrounding flowerbeds. Kids will love the Rory Meyer's Children's Adventure Garden, where they'll learn about plant science in a very fun way. Take advantage of several dining options provided by the arboretum and this scenic getaway will prove to be a great escape from city life, without actually leaving the city.

Williams Park: A Picturesque Spot for Fishermen and Nature Lovers in University Park

July 9, 2014 10:02 am

A floating fountain spouts a continuous jet of water back into placid Turtle Creek pond, the focal point of Williams Park. Situated right across from City Hall, it's only fitting that the park is named for former University Park Mayor Elbert Williams, who served from the late 1930's into the 1940's, as well as his son, Walter.

The pond often draws fishermen to its pier, where they often reel in catfish and bass. A beautifully landscaped peninsula juts out into Turtle Creek pond for those looking for a scenic stroll or quiet afternoon watching the ducks and other waterfall who play here.

Those interested in sweating off some calories can go for a run on the jogging trail, take kids to the playground, or start a game on the tennis courts or soccer field. There's also plenty of space for picnicking, so you can bring a meal and spread out in the sunshine.
