What Kind of Fun Can Your Family Enjoy Over Spring Break?

Will the kids be home from school for a week of spring break, soon? If so, are you feeling a bit worried about your family coming down with a bad case of cabin fever? Well fret not; there is plenty to do in the Dallas area! That means you can keep your kids busy, and more importantly happy, during their brief hiatus from school. Best of all, there are plenty of affordable and education options, that can make the week fun for all, without making too much of a dent on your wallet.

Don’t Miss the Many Dallas Attractions

The Perot Museum, the Dallas Arboretum, and the Dallas Museum of Art are just a few of the local attractions, perfect for family fun. Six Flags over Texas in Arlington is another huge attraction, of course, albeit a more expensive one. Luckily, there are lots of low-cost alternatives that are still high on fun.

Love art, for instance? Visit the Nasher Sculpture Center, which offers a mix of peaceful garden areas and beautiful gallery spaces. There will also be tours, stories, and hands-on projects as part of a spring break initiative, March 14 through March 19, 2017. Best of all, admission is free during this week.

Another free place to have lots of fun is Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas. There is a water feature perfect for warm days, and Imagination Playground, which features larger-than-life blocks. Games and books can also be checked out here, and the entire park is dog-friendly. While families are invited to bring their own picnic lunch, there are also a variety of food trucks on-site each weekday, giving ample opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, right in the heart of Dallas.

You can also get involved in a day camp at the Dallas Zoo. Here, kids get to explore the various habitats at the zoo, while learning more about its many inhabitants. There will also be crafts, games, and animal encounters, March 13 through March 17, 2017.

Trinity River Audubon Center is another great destination, particularly for kids interested in birding or nature. Texas Discovery Garden is also offering crafts and various activities related to nature, including a butterfly release and nature walks during the spring break week.
