DINING & DRINKING
You won’t truly understand the saying, “Everything is bigger in Texas” until you’ve visited the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine. There’s so much to explore with 4.5 acres of hotel space, gardens, riverwalk, pools, restaurants, nightlife, spa among other amenities and entertainment offerings.
3. THE RUSTIC
This is one place we always take our out-of-town friends for a true “Texas” experience—without being over-the-top or tacky. With excellent (and giant) margaritas, delicious southern fare and a huge stage with live music, The Rustic is the quintessential spot to get your “Texas experience” fix in Dallas.
UNLEASH YOUR INNER CHILD
You might never guess, but the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, still tops our list of the coolest, most unique experiences in DFW. From a trip down memory lane with a display of hundreds of game consoles to an 80s arcade, this entirely interactive museum is a great place to visit at any age!
Fun fact: Grand Priarie is home to the largest indoor waterpark in the nation! No matter what the Texas weather brings, you can kick back and find some fun at Epic Waters. There’s nothing like the thrill of zipping down a water slide or trying your hand at surfing on the FlowRider. Plus, there’s a full-service bar AND a lazy river. What more could you ask for?
