Spring Break is coming up this month.  My readers often tell me they are looking for things to do in Dallas for Spring Break, but with temperatures that go from 40 to 70 degrees in the same day, it’s hard to make plans that are all inside or outside.  With that said, it’s nice to incorporate a little of both into your week, though I personally stay away from pools in March because the sun isn’t set to come out and warm the water just yet.  (I do have one tip for swimming below!)

Keep in mind that I have four children, ranging in age from 13 to 2.  When I make plans, I keep everyone’s interest in mind.  I can’t have a bored 8-year-old or a 2-year-old that is going to interrupt meant-to-be quiet spaces.


Spring Break In Dallas, TX

  1. Reunion Tower – This is one of my children’s favorite places, simply because of the amazing view from the Geo-Deck!  We also love the high-definition zoom cameras, interactive touch screens, telescopes and photo ops!  Read about our experience at Reunion Tower.  
  2. The Zoo – Both the Dallas Zoo and the Fort Worth Zoo are great for spending the day outside.  We like to go early in the morning, when the animals are most active.  *The Fort Worth Zoo has been known to get very busy during Spring Break, especially on Wednesday when tickets are 1/2 price.
  3. Texas Discovery Garden – March is the perfect time to see the butterflies at Discovery Garden. Check the calendar for the daily release times, and pack a lunch to eat in the garden behind the exhibit!
  4. Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park – This is like a mini-aquarium, with a great opportunity to feed the stingrays!  This could be fun to pair with the Texas Discovery Garden because they are so close to each other.  (And who doen’t love catching a glimpse of that huge ferris wheel?)new medieval times show
  5. Medieval Times – plan this for dinner!  Here’s why we love the new show!
  6. Sea Life – This is an amazing aquarium, with everything from sea turtles to sharks, fish, snakes and stingrays!  There are a few interactive games to play while you’re in the exhibit.  *This is located right outside of Dallas, in Grapevine.
  7. Legoland Discovery Center – Just a few steps away from Sea Life Aquarium, this is perfect for your Lego builders!  Make sure you visit the new space exhibit inside Legoland!
  8. Epic Waters – Located right outside of Dallas in Grand Prairie, you’ll find a new indoor waterpark waiting for guests who have the week off of school!  
  9. The Bush Presidential Library – My 8 year old absolutely loves visiting “the Bush Library” and asks us often if we can go back.  It’s located in the heart of Dallas, and a great learning opportunity if you haven’t been.  (Read about our experience and plan to eat at Grub Burger Bar if you go!)
  10. Walk around The Hilton Anatole. This hotel is so much more than your normal hotel.  It’s actually home to hundreds of pieces of art from a museum! (Where else can you see a piece of the Berlin Wall in Dallas?)  Stop by the front desk and ask for the map, as I believe there’s a 1-mile trail that you can walk to see the art displayed on the property!  (This is free, you’d just have to pay for parking.  If you’ve never seen a marionette puppet show before, I’d check the schedule and plan for that while you’re there!  Find the show schedule here!)

IF you plan to visit one or more of these venues, make sure you check out the Pogo Pass – for one low price, you can get into 3 places on this list, plus play Putt-Putt, visit a waterpark, have lunch at IT’Z, go to a basketball game and more!  (Use the code: MOM to save 60% on your Pogo Pass!)
