Just For The Little Ones

While older kids will revel in adventure-filled attractions, scream-inducing rides, and educational science museums, little kids under the age of 12 or 10 may need a different itinerary. Check out the amazing learning adventure offered by the renowned Dallas Zoo which is a 100-acre zoo located approximately 3 miles south of Dallas, or the family-friendly Shenaniganz Entertainment Center which has something for both kids and adults alike. There’s also a jump zone for toddlers. Let the kids loose while they challenge their friends to games like bowling, go-karts and mini golf while the adults can hang around the sports bar with an ice cold beer!

For birthdays, rent a charter bus and bring the kids to Safari Run less than half hour away. There's also a multi-story butterfly park, a sculpture garden and a series of thought-provoking exhibits at Texas Discovery Gardens. During summer, you’re in luck because that’s when Dallas gives its residents and visitors a taste of Broadway. A host of diverse programs are brought to Fair Park music hall where you'll get the chance to enjoy renowned shows like Lion King, Anastasia, elf, Aladdin, and many more! And if the kids are still full of energy, bring the charter bus to Jumpstreet Indoor Trampoline Park! Let them bounce off the walls - if they’re not already doing that in the hotel, museums and on the charter bus - and let them release for their energy with basketball games and the obstacle courses.
