Fun things to do in dallas

“The Big D!” - because everything is big in Texas, and Dallas is no different (After all, it is the 4th largest city in the nation!). Dallas is a really special city for kids. Big attractions, and big kids FUN!

You might not have thought, but Dallas is actually a really great city for museums. The fascinating Frontiers of Flight Museum, Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science are hugely popular with kids. They will immerse them in history, and allow them to learn as they have fun! (and we know parents love that!)

And what would a BIG ol’ city like Dallas be without big ol’ theme parks! Sandy Lake Amusement Park, Hawaiian Falls and Bahama Beach are ready and waiting for families who want some thrills, spills, and Texan style chills! A great way for them to use up all that extra energy.

Dallas is also great for active kids with the racing fun SpeedZone, or perhaps you prefer animals? Dallas Zoo! All sorted for you.

There are so many fun things to do in Dallas. We have a feeling you just might not want to leave!
