It's the perfect mix of shopping, entertainment, dining and leisure. I enjoy the Restaurants and shopping stores and even a few of the entertainment with Dave and Busters and Studio Movie Grill.

A hole in a wall with delicious food inside! Now, don't let the exterior intimidate you. Once you enter the restaurant you would need to walk to the register and order the food instead of sitting down and having a waiter bring the menu. Their menu consists of gorditas, flautas, tacos, salads, tamales and so on.

Drinks- 2 drink minimum. Yeah this part kind of sucks but if you order bottled water as a drink it should be no more than $8 per person. I want to complain but I've never been to any comedy club that didn't have this rule. Overall it's a great place for a date night or girls night. If you are easily offended this might not be the place for you.

They have tons of rides for kids, and of course the Titan, Giant, and Bateman are awesome. If only the could find someway to keep us from having to wait in line! Slow days are definitely much better than crowded days, but we still have fun anyways. Food is way over priced so we always eat before we go or take sandwiches in a cooler to eat on way home. The park is always clean and winter in the park is a nice treat. The snow hill was really fun for the kids since we never see snow in Texas. Long story short, lots of rides, expensive food, lines are sometimes short but usually long, rides are really fun.

The building looks really small from the street but when you enter, it's like stepping into a tropical rainforest.The highlight for me was the huge aquarium wall where you can see a manatee and other huge fish up close. You can also see how deep the aquarium really is. Parking -the lot attached is $7 and there's one that's $3 two blocks down. Cost-$60 for two adults and a child over 2 yo.

The Indoor Water park is ideal for ages 9mos to 16 years old. If you take the older kids, you may want to go on a non-weekend so you aren't stuck in the slide lines for forever. There's a restaurant and store that sells things you may have accidentally left in the car or at home, and there's lockers(expensive) available for your convenience. Tubes are free and so are floaties. Even though check in for your hotel room isn't until like 3 or 4, you can get into the water park at 1pm

With a variety of high end stores to choose from, there's bound to be something for everyone. Lots of high end stores here from Rolex and Hublot to Louis Vuitton and Cartier. I highly recommend visiting this mall at Christmas. Take a day off work or clear an entire Saturday. They literally have the best Santa ever, entertainment and events. The decorations are awesome and the entire environment will put you in holiday cheer.

Sightseeing
While you are on the tour bus, the driver plays a video of actual TV footage at the time of the assassination. It was all a very moving, sobering experience. You go by the exact route that JFK took when he was killed. 646 Main St Dallas, TX 75202 West End, Downtown Phone number (214) 310-0700

This is one of my favorite spots in Dallas! My family and I love to come and walk this bridge. You get a beautiful view of the Dallas skyline. You must check it out at sunset - the skyline is gorgeous! If you get there early enough, you can find a place for your car right near the bridge. If not, no worries, as street parking is readily available along the Trinity River, it just makes for a longer walk. The good news is that it is all free.

Amazing city Views. We walked over after having dinner in the Trinity Groves complex. The whole area is laid out like the other trails and parks in the city with mile markers, a sidewalk trail. On the upper level there are benches and areas to enjoy the view! Great for a stroll after dinner!

Worth the view where Oswald allegedly killed JFK and the American Dream. Loads of pictures and an auto self tour.Parking at the immediate lot is $10. Tickets for entry were $16/adult (senior citizens, youth and kids) and comes with an audio tour. It is well worth it. The museum centers on JFK's assassination and the events that occurred days before and after it.

A place you must visit. We entered the reunion tower threw the Hyatt hotel. It was $17 per adult. Took the elevator up over 40 stories. The staffs were very friendly and welcoming. When you get up to the top there is a small bar, many touch screen tv for additional information, and ofcourse the view. The touch screen boards give you access to information/history about Dallas, places they suggest to visit, theme of lighting's during events, and live cameras hooked up that you can control in real time.

Llyod park at joe pool lake is one of my favorite places to take the family. Not only do they have a huge beach area with tons of sand, volley ball court, tables and gazebos, but its so very clean. There's no trash laying around and people clean up after themselves very well. They have a roped off swimming area where it's shallow enough for kids but good for adults too. For an all day pass it's only $10 and it's worth it! You can also rent spots for camping or parties. Sitting back on the sand while kids are happily playing makes for a great day. Bring a cooler of drinks and don't forget your sunscreen. Guaranteed a great day!

It's a great place for children, families, tourists, locals, etc.I find the Arboretum a wonderful place to unwind, enjoy nature, relax and sincerely get away from the craziness in life. I really enjoy that the plants, trees and flowers are all labeled, which means I learn something new each time I come. There are various opportunities to pick up food or drink as you make your way through the gardens, but if you want to pack a picnic there are some breathtaking places to spread a blanket and eat.
