Dallas Summer Bucket List

Dallas Summer Bucket List

Can you believe that summer is almost over? We’re already half-way through July and school starts in just over a month. It’s been a really busy summer in our household. I’ve wanted to write a Dallas Summer Bucket List for a while now.

Some days, it’s hard for me to motivate myself to get out and do things. I like to joke that having a toddler makes doing anything 10 times harder than it was before. But Andrew is definitely the kind of person who doesn’t sit still, so it’s best for everyone if we get up and get out during the day.

Having a list of places to go and things to do helps me get organized so that getting out of the house is a little easier. I wanted to share a list of 20 Things to Do in Dallas this summer.

  1. Im adding some of these to our own list! šŸ™‚ how fun!

  2. Good post! Today we went to Grapevine and rode on the Vintage Railroad hour long ride. It was just long enough for the 2 year olds in our group to not get bored. One thing my cousin does with her kids during the summer is “Special Tuesday,” where she takes her kids to do something special every Tuesday during the summer so they don’t waste the summer without doing some super fun stuff. It’s branched out to several cousins joining in and it’s been a blast every time I’ve been able to make it.

    We went today to the Dallas Arboretum and my baby was so excited about everything in there, especially anything with water on it, they also have face painting and a petting zoo on Fridays, It was soooooo hot out there, so we definitely will carry a lot of water bottles and some sandwiches for next time ( a soda and one bag of Doritos was $5.14 ).

  4. You nailed some of the best things about Dallas in your list. Good job.
