Here are eight DFW attractions you might not know existed but should.
When living in the big city, it’s great to have a haven to escape to and enjoy nature. My family and I always love coming to this park to get outdoors and explore. Be sure to take the trail all the way to the look-out point for a beautiful view. You won’t regret it.
The owner is a lovely British woman who decided to open up a shop in Texas because she was frustrated that she could not find a proper cup of tea in the DFW area. Unlike the sweet tea many Texans are familiar with, to her, a proper cup of tea was not something served super-sized, over ice with tons of sugar! Here, you can find everything from teas, chocolates, biscuits, magazines and more celebrating England!
Visiting the old-fashioned Highland Park Soda Fountain is always a nostalgic experience and reminds me of a simpler time. My kids like to prop up on the diner counter and enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches and strawberry shakes. Come with an empty stomach and leave full of sweet memories.
This family-friendly sandy beach on Lewisville Lake is where the locals like to getaway. After some water time, head to the nearby Hula Hut for a twist of Tex-Mex and Hawaiian-infused cuisine. The view from the restaurant is spectacular and is best during sunset.
Did you know there’s a “secret” walking path along the creek in the Fort Worth Stockyards? This tucked-away trail can be accessed from an alleyway off Main Street, but Love Shack Burger has a rear entrance that leads directly down to the trail. The tough decision is whether to have the big, juicy burger before or after your stroll.
Known for their wild and free nature, mustangs are a perfect symbol of our state’s history. My family loves to see the beautiful bronze sculptures of nine majestic horses in the Las Colinas Urban Center. Make time to check out the museum inside and learn more about the installation and African wildlife artist Robert Glen.
