Jones|Carter has been in North Texas, opening our Dallas office in 1996. In 2018, we had the privilege of opening an office in Fort Worth. As our footprint expands, so does our staff. We asked several team members to fill us in on their favorite things to do during the summer months. Below is a list of activities selected by our team and fit for the whole family.
Have Fun in the Sun at Six Flags
Six Flags is currently hosting a Father’s Day event where season passes are 55% off! Grab your season passes for the whole family or just visit for a day. With rides for all ages, live music from local musicians, and dancing Looney Tunes characters, there is something to keep the family entertained for hours.
Walk the Trails at White Rock Lake
Approximately five miles from downtown Dallas lies White Rock Lake. White Rock boasts nearly 10 miles of hike and bike trails, picnic areas, boat ramps, and a bird watching area. Give dad some binoculars and hiking boots and spend some time on the trails, check out the Dallas Arboretum, and meander through the White Rock Lake Museum.
Eye Something Aesthetic in the Dallas Arts District
There is always something going on in the Dallas Arts District. Grab a blanket and check out a movie on the Ginsberg Family Great Lawn every Saturday through the summer. If you’re looking for something specific for dad, the Symphony is playing the music of Star Trek, which is perfect for the Science Fiction lover in your life. On the second Thursday of each month, the arts district hosts “Second Thursday With A Twist” letting you view the museums with a pop culture twist. On June 13th, the theme is I Want It That Way. Get your Backstreet on and dance your way through the museums.
Catch Some Air at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum
The Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison has one of the finest collections of aircraft in the world. There is a variety of aircraft from WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War as well as armored vehicles, military trucks, and even weapons. But not only does the Cavanaugh Flight Museum have a great collection to view, they also offer rides with views of Dallas. It is the perfect gift for the aviation enthusiast in your life.
Peruse the Annual Asian Festival
The 2019 Asian Festival will be held on June 15th at The Sound at Cypress Waters in Dallas. This yearly festival celebrates Asian American and Pacific Highlander culture through performances, exhibits, vendor booths, and authentic foods. This free event is something the whole family can enjoy!
Take in the Tacos and Tunes
One Friday per month Tacos and Tunes puts on an event somewhere in Dallas. The June showcase will be held on June 14th at The Wax Space. Three local artists will play their hearts out as you fill your belly with delicious tacos. It really doesn’t get much better than tacos with some tunes.
Find Your Inner Farmer at The Shed Farmers Market
Every Saturday and Sunday (and throughout the week, though there aren’t as many vendors), The Shed hosts a Farmers Market. Between the open-air pavilion, the fresh seasonal produce, and the local arts and crafts vendors, you may find yourself spending quite a bit of time outdoors.
