This year’s Spring Break was spent in Fort Worth. We visited all the attractions my DD planned of visiting.
Because we arrived quite early at the hotel, DD and I decided to go to the museum in Downtown Fort Worth. There were a few nice museums there but we agreed to go to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Lots of interesting artifacts (replicas) from the dinosaur age are on display in the museum. We enjoyed the most is the history of ranching in Texas. DD and I were fascinated with the different breeds of cows. 🙂
It feels mind-refreshing to be in a museum. You will see exhibits that will fascinate you and will make you ask “did these really happen?”. You will learn lots of knowledge and ingenuity. The experience takes you to the past while you are living in the modern times-where the old and the new meet and you are in between.
Museums are one of the best learning resources for your children. You should visit at least one whenever you travel or when you are on vacation. You and your family will surely enjoy it. 🙂
We surely enjoyed this year’s Spring Break. My darling daughter was satisfied with all our adventures we had this week. One of her favorites was our hotel room accommodation in Fort Worth. We did not go back to the hotel where we stayed last year because the room smelled like fried fish. She even called it “fried fish hotel”. Lol
Anyway, we stayed at Hyatt Place Cityview Fort Worth this time. The room rate was $3 higher than the “fried fish hotel”. I grabbed it anyway since we wanted to try to stay in a new hotel this year.
It was a good decision because the room was nice. The living area is big and they gave us two double beds and one sofa bed room. The downside was, the room has a small closet and small bathroom. The front office seems kinda ‘cold’ but we enjoyed staying at Hyatt Place. 🙂
DD even told me she wanted to buy one of the rooms so she can live there. I said hopefully when she finished college and get a high paying job or high earning business in the future. 🙂
Spring Break already? Wow! How fast this school year is passing by. We are so excited to go on a family mini-vacation again. This Spring Break we are not going very far. We are on a staycation. And our darling daughter already planned where she wants to go-to the zoo. Haha! But the trip to the zoo is tomorrow. We still had an hour spare after checking in at Extended Stay of America in Fort Worth so we agreed to go to the botanic gardens.
I missed this place. It’s been 10 years since I visited Fort Worth Botanic Garden for the very first time upon arrival in Texas from the Philippines. A few attractions looked old but the ambiance still feels the same. Serene. I can spend all day here. So lovely and peaceful. My darling daughter loved it here, too. She said the Japanese Garden is her most favorite. She fed the koi fish which she enjoyed the most. We saw a lot of blooms along the pathways but most of the flowering plants are not in full blooms yet. I am sure in April this place is full of colors. You should visit.
