There are so many fun family activities this spring and into summer here in north Texas. Here is a sampling:
A perennial favorite is the Dallas Arboretum, especially the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. https://www.dallasarboretum.org/
In Allen, try the Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve and Dayspring Nature Preserve or the always bustling Celebration Park. https://www.cityofallen.org/902/Parks-Recreation

You can find so much to do at McKinney’s Erwin Park and Towne Lake Recreation Area. If your family hasn’t yet visited, the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary is a must. https://www.mckinneytexas.org/114/Parks-Recreation
Scarborough Renaissance Festival is a fun family activity in Waxahachie. The dates for this year’s event are April 6-May 27 on Saturdays and Sundays. You can find more information at https://www.srfestival.com/
We love taking kids of all ages to the Interurban Railway Museum in Plano, and the Heritage Farmstead in Plano is an oasis of history in the middle of a bustling city.
Last but not least, kid favorites include Legoland in Grapevine, the Crayola Experience in Plano, and the Sci-Tech Discovery Center in Frisco.
