So, come summer, when the kids are out of school, we’re making sure there’s enough Texas-sized fun to keep the family happy. You’re welcome. Roaring adventures await at the zoos in Dallas and Fort Worth. With behind-the-scenes access, options to play animal photographer and myriad events, there are thrills aplenty at the Dallas Zoo, the oldest and largest in the state. At the Fort Worth Zoo, two of the newest additions, the Stingray Cove and the Children’s Ranch and Petting Corral, offer interactive experiences. Visitors get to touch stingrays at the cove, pet sheep and snakes and groom goats at the corral. Get theatrical with Shakespeare Dallas, creative at the Crayola Experience, enjoy unique thrill rides at the indoor mega waterpark Epic Waters and dive into make-believe fun at Peppa Pig World of Play. When you’re ready to fuel up or shop, our pick of the best places to hang out ensures neither you nor the younger ones feel shortchanged. On that note, our neighborhood spotlight is on Sundance Square, that neat, walkable stretch in downtown Fort Worth that is always abuzz with events, amazing performance

going on in Bishop Arts District right now. It seems like there are new restaurants, shops, and galleries popping up all the time. Not to mention that they have my favorite authentic Texas BBQ spot, Lockhart Smokehouse. Not many people realize that we have a Presidential Library right here in Dallas.

Q: FOR A GUEST LOOKING FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN, WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND? A: Any local favorite

on McKinney Avenue or Knox/Henderson is always a great bet, particularly The Standard Pour. The sheer amount of bourbon is staggering. However, I have a personal attachment to The Mansion Bar.

EXPERT TIP

I love a good trip to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, its hands-on, science oriented.

MEDIEVAL TIMES


FOOD & FASHION: CHILD FRIENDLY, ADULT APPROVED D

allas-Fort Worth is home to several eateries that, while they don’t necessarily specialize in “kid food,” are appealing to young appetites in different ways. And in an area known for its fashion— Highland Park Village, the country’s oldest shopping center, debuted in Dallas in 1931—it only makes sense that there would be stylish shops to stop by. MARY MCKINNY

MEDIEVAL TIMES

Founder Drew Gressett started out as an Austin food truck. Now with 16 brick-and-mortar locations (and counting), Hat Creek has expanded from fresh burgers and fries to include salads, chicken, breakfast items, and a mind-boggling number of milkshake combinations. Play yards out back help kids burn off energy. Multiple Dallas locations, www.hatcreekburgers.com

AREPA TX Here’s an easy sell for kiddos: A grilled sandwich made of corn. That’s the basis for an arepa, a Latin street-food staple, and Arepa TX makes some of the best in DFW (along with rice bowls, tacos, and housemade paletas). But the real selling point is the playroom with chalkboard walls, TVs, pint-sized picnic tables and toys. A good rainy-day spot. 5940 Royal Lane, Dallas, 214.396.8866, www.arepatx.com

KIDBIZ AND THEBIZ The brainchild of a former couture buyer for Neiman Marcus, KidBiz features fashionable clothes for kids and infants. New owners expanded with TheBiz, aimed at teen girls and young adults. Now the connected stores—plus luggage brand Jon Hart’s in-store monogramming shop—are the go-to spot for the fashion conscious. 5370 W. Lovers Lane, Dallas, 214.692.5437

SWEET AS SUGAR COUTURE The flagship boutique of this brand is in The Shops at Clearfork, though stylish parents have been buying online ever since the store was featured on ABC’s “The Bachelorette.” Owner and head designer Jackie Deluna crafts party frocks to playsuits for newborns to 16-year-olds, and stocks other brands, too. 5266 Marathon Ave., Fort Worth, 682.224.5422, www. sweetassugarcouture.com
