Hi Everyone, I think it would be lovely if we could share our experience abt the places that are worth visiting around Dallas. I had been to Lake Lewisville. It was a fun place. You can either plan a picnic or if you like you may camp too. But there is an entry fee as well as camping fee. Water sports like boating, fishing, so on are allowed. There are grills and benches on the banks of the river, so you may even have a barbecue... The place is definitely worth visiting... Dallas World Aquarium - Entrance fee around $16.00 per ticket but you can spend the whole day with kids without getting bored. It's different and educative. There is also some performance by Mayan Tribes (dressed very colourfully with Maccaw's sitting on them, small stretch of underwater world, Large bird nests with the nesting birds... so on... it's an interesting outing for people with little ones Fortworth Zoo, wow... it's tiring ... Entrance fee ~$12.00 p.t. .. kids will enjoy. Better to carry some snacks or food as the restaurants in the Zoo are packed and takes hours of wait to finally get the food. Kids will enjoy but yes it could be not very interesting for the adults. Do post your reviews of the places that u've visited. It can be very handy for all of us living in and around Dallas to do something in the week-ends.
