Are you wondering what you will be doing over Spring Break to entertain the family? I have listed 10 of my best ideas (with the help of www.visitdallas.com) to help you fill your calendar!
- The Dallas Arboretum is one of my favorite places to visit anytime of the year. Over Spring Break, though, besides seeing the Dallas Blooms (the breathtaking floral display with over 500,000 spring-blooming bulbs!) you can also attend “Molly Ringwalds: The World’s Greatest 80’s Tribute Band.” They will be in concert on March 12 at 7 p.m. They are in town all the way from Sheffield, England. This is a concert you won’t want to miss if you love the 80’s!
- The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is always a venue you can count on for the best performances! Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet will be playing from March 12 to March 15 at 7:30 p.m. Case Scaglione, Associate Conductor of the New York Philharmonic, makes his conducting debut. As her debut with the DSO, pianist Lucille Chung performs young Dallas composer Chase Dobson’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Dobson is currently studying at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts, and his works have been heard around Dallas and nationally on the radio program From the Top. If you love music like I do, then make time to go see this!
- Who doesn’t love the zoo? The Dallas Zoo is offering a WILD TIME! There are more than 2,000 animals to see and 106 acres to explore. “DinoSOAR” will debut with a wildlife show, featuring guests interacting with exotic animals, from rare African birds to giant capybaras. The young ones would love this!
- The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza is hosting a “CSI Family Day” on March 15th from 12 to 5 p.m. They have partnered with the UNT Forensic Science Program and set up a crime scene that you and your family have to solve…someone sets a fire at the circus, an ambassador is poisoned at a state dinner…
- Now this is different! The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum is presenting the Samurai Collection. Kids and adults can make their own samurai armor, fold origami creations, and participate in several Japanese folk traditions that originate from the time of the samurai! Connect with your inner-warrior and learn about the fascinating culture of the samurai with this world-renowned collection of samurai armor. March 10th- 13th 11AM- 4PM. Free to the public.
- Have you ever tried Painting with a Twist? This would be a fun ladies-night out or a family day event. You can bring your own food and drinks. The calendar is booked with everything from owls to phone booths! Go give your creative side a go!
- Have a high school student that likes to act? The Latino Cultural Center is having a Spring Break Intensive that will run from March 9 to 13 from 10 to 5 p.m. with a final performance on March 14th held at the Latino Cultural Center. They are accepting a limited number of high school students for this free spring break program. It will focus on vocal strength, improvisation, physicality, playwriting and acting. For information on how to enroll your student, please contact Jessica Trevizo at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 214-670-7952.
- What about relaxing in a folding chair while you watch your kiddo play soccer? Mutiny FC is hosting a Spring Break Soccer camp from March 9th to 12th from 6 – 8 p.m. at Founders Park in Wylie. To register for this event just click here. This is my daughter’s soccer club…Go Mutiny!
- The Dallas Arts District is kicking off Spring Break by closing their streets for a dayime block party on March 7th from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. There will be activities such as family yoga, scavenger hunts, art-making and guided tours. Outdoor musicians will also be there. Come hungry! Many of the town’s best food trucks will be there with plenty of food!
- And my last suggestion is to visit the George W. Bush Presidential Center. This is a must for all Dallas area residents. Learn all about President and Mrs. Bush and the American Presidency, explore the interactive museum galleries, sit in the Oval Office, enjoy the Texas Rose Garden, eat at the exquisite Café 43 restaurant and take a stroll through our 15-acre park filled with native Texas prairie grasses and wildflowers.
Hopefully these ideas will keep you and your family busy over Spring Break. And of course, if I can help you with any of your REAL ESTATE needs, just contact me so I can assist you! I am never too busy for your business!
