Exploring Downtown Dallas on Spring Break

Old Red Museum of Dallas
Magnolia Building
Beautiful building structure in Downtown Dallas

It’s Spring Break, that means it’s frolicking time again. We had a great time exploring Downtown Dallas today. We didn’t take the DART because we thought the travel time was quite long. So we convoyed. We felt more comfortable with that.

Exploring city downtown means a lot of walking. But we were prepared for that. We had our most comfortable tennis shoes on. Ha! You have to pay a one-day parking in downtown, too. It was $10 per car.

I always admire beautiful building structures and Downtown Dallas did not disappoint. You may look at the photos above. We visited one museum called Museum of Illusions. Below is me and the girls in one of the areas where your eyes are tricked (optical illusion).

After so much walking, we were starving, so we had an early dinner at the Family Thais Asian Bistro and headed home after.

Fun Learning Experience at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History – Fort Worth, Texas

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. 🙂

Decent Affordable Hotel Accommodation in Fort Worth

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. 🙂
