Spring breakers are you looking for something to do this week? Here are some of our best spring break ideas we’ve rounded up if you are staying in Dallas, but still want to get out and have some fun. By week’s end it is for sure you will definitely have some stories to tell.
At Dallas Heritage Village March is the time for gun fights and music. From March 14 to 17, 2017 Spring Fling: Jumbo Fun at Dallas Heritage Village is all about enjoying your favorite classic games, but on a much larger scale. Are you able to get a strike when the bowling ball is your size? How long will your train of dominoes be when they’re the size of your foot? All this and more will be happening all week. You can also stop in and check out the temporary Log Cabin Quilt exhibit where there is a set of jumbo Lincoln logs to play with. On March 18 you can witness early Dallas law and order, settler style, on the Village’s Main Street. Performed by the Trinity River Desperados, you will get a firsthand view of the “Wild West” when a mild disagreement turned into a gun fight.
At the Texas Discovery Gardens spring break is Safari week from March 13 to 17, 2017 with a variety of come-and-go activities, story times, crafts and meet-the-critter talks.
