Thursday night baseball games complete with a lazy river, unlimited food and access to $1 beers…Does life getting any sweeter than this? There are only a few PATY games left this summer (August 2, 16, 30), so plan your night out at Frisco’s Dr Pepper Ballpark ASAP!
As a non-gamer, I figured my attention span would last an hour during my first visit, but I ended up having to be kicked out at closing time! From the arcade room, where classics like Ms. Pac Man live, to the 90s bedroom replica where you can play old-school Mario Bros, every minute at the National Videogame Museum is well spent. The only thing that makes it better is if you have someone to share the experience with (read: take your picture).
Warning: A little bit of walking in the heat is required for this one, but I promise it’s not too much! Begin your Deep Ellum tour at Stirr to enjoy drinks, apps and a gorgeous view of Dallas. Once you’re finished, walk to Harlowe MXM and try a delicious burger. Then head to Chills360 to experience the best rolled ice cream in DFW. End your evening by catching a ride to The Adolphus for a nightcap at The French Room.
If you like a little challenge and competition, this is just what you need to check out! We love coming to this Plano escape room with a group of couples where boys vs. girls go head to head in one of the competition rooms. There are 10 rooms, so no matter how many times we go, we always have a new puzzling adventure. Did I mention you’re in the AC? WINNING.
Nothing screams “romantic date” quite like learning how to cook together. Classes range from brunch to Mexican and everything in between. Ladies and gents, if your S/O swears by microwave meals, suggest this date night as a secret way to have meals made for you in the future!
There is just something incredibly relaxing about staying in a hotel and not having to pick up after yourself. It also doesn’t hurt that the Gaylord has an incredible variety of on-site dining options, a night club, spa and large pool with a lazy river. The Gaylord Resort is the ultimate setting for a romantic getaway in DFW.
