If you are anything like me, you are okay with having a laid back spring break. This year, I decided to go home and rest from all things school and work related. In doing so, I spent most of my time hanging out with friends and family, and though I don’t regret my decision, I decided to spend the last few day having fun and doing things I normally don’t do on a normal basis. Here are some of the ideas that I came up with.
- Texas Tulips- This is becoming a cult classic here in Texas. In a huge garden in Pilot Point, you have the ability to choose from dozens of different kinds of tulips. You pick them yourself, and then the workers wrap them up for you. Not only is the experience fun for everyone, but it also makes for a great photoshoot opportunity. If you live anywhere in north Texas, or are up for a road trip, I highly recommend this.
- Six Flags Over Texas- If you are a thrill seeker, this option is for you. Between dozens of rides, daily shows and concerts and lots of food, Six Flags can’t be beat. Located in Arlington, there is always something for everyone, so even if you are scared of heights like I am, you are guaranteed fun.
- Unk’s Lake- This man-made swimming hole in Perrin might not be that popular, but is truly a hidden gem. Completed with volleyball courts, diving boards and slides, this lake is an beautiful place to hang out at without having to worry about critters in the water. It is also a camping ground, so if that is something you enjoy doing, it is a win-win situation. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, though!
- Winstar Casino- If you are up for a road trip, and aren’t afraid of potentially losing all your money, Winstar is your go-to. Filled with everything from penny slots, to poker tables, to a bingo hall, you could spend all day there and not run out of things to do. They also frequently hold shows, so if you can get tickets, then you can experience that, too. Each section has a different theme, and each is just as beautiful as the other.
- Any museum- I know that this is a typical answer, but anywhere you live, you can find a museum nearby. Whether it is a small, local one about your towns history, or one in a big city filled with famous art or artifacts, each one is so special. If you look hard enough, you can probably even find a museum that holds stuff that you are interested in.
