It isn’t that easy to keep your kids entertained all summer long. You might have a family vacation planned, church activities, family reunions to attend, and maybe some water park and amusement park trips planned as well. While all of those plans are great for Texas summer fun, not all of it will be able to keep your kids attention all summer long. There are many stay-cation activities around Dallas-Fort Worth and Waco to keep your kids and teens amused without breaking the bank.
Things to Do This Summer in Dallas-Fort Worth:
Have a Picnic
Throughout the DFW, there are hundreds of local and state parks. Plan a weekly picnic; but don’t go to the same park each time, try a new park each week. You and your kids might discover a great park nearby that you didn’t even realize was that awesome.
Go to the Zoo
How long has it been since you’ve gone to the Zoo? While it isn’t a free zoo, the Dallas Zoo does offer some great season pass options that will be worthwhile if your kids want to go more than just once a year. The Fort Worth Zoo is renowned throughout North Texas for its wide variety of exhibits and kid-friendly programs.
Have Fun With Science
Check out some of the hot science spots in the DFW. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will keep their brains going while on summer break, Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Grand Prairie is great entertainment spot for kids and adults of all ages. The Sci-Tech Discovery Center in Frisco hosts seasonal events and has great prices for all day sci-tech fun.
