This annual Texas tradition is always a good time with family and friends. Kids will love the petting zoo and carnival-like Midway, and the rodeo events provide thrilling action like bull riding, barrel racing and so much more. Don’t miss the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, Jan. 12 to Feb. 3.
My family loves visiting Grapevine’s local shops and discovering unique gifts and treats. One to check out is Dr. Sue’s Chocolate store, with an assortment of dark, milk, sweet and tangy chocolates. For a more interactive activity, check out their truffle making classes this January.
Add the Sixth Floor Museum to your list of places to visit this season. Learn about the burial and funeral of President John F. Kennedy during the “Mourning a President” exhibition, open through Feb. 19. This is something the older kids will appreciate as they come to have a greater understanding of our nation’s history.
This cool deal is perfect for a day of exploring the zoo with the kids. Through Feb. 28, enjoy $7 admission to the Dallas Zoo for Penguin Days, presented by Highland Captial Management. The Zoo’s winter hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and children 2 and younger are always free!
