NASA’s Johnson Space Center
NASA’s Johnson Space Center is located in Huston, Texas. This is a family-friendly daytime activity that includes looking at different space shuttles, viewing the Mission Control room (for a limited time only, it is set to close in the near future), and even touch a moon rock. A food court is located in the main building to take a break and enjoy a meal.
Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Silos located in Waco, Texas is a must see for any and all “Fixer Upper” fans. At the Silo’s, the Magnolia Market, Garden and Bakery can be found. There is a lawn for kids and families to play, and food trucks located between the Garden and the back side of the Magnolia Market building. This is again another family-friendly event, but fans of “Fixer Upper” will have fun browsing all of the items for sale.
The Dr. Pepper Museum
Also located in Waco, Texas just a short distance away from the Silos is the Dr. Pepper Museum. This is a family-friendly event, but little ones could get tired out or bored considering most of the museum involves reading and looking at items on display. There is a patio area with cornhole to play. Also, at the end of the museum, you can turn in a voucher for a free Dr. Pepper. You can also choose to buy other Dr. Pepper related food or gift shop items with your own money.
The AT&T Stadium, also known as the Cowboy’s Stadium, is located in Dallas, Texas. Before arriving in Dallas purchase your tour tickets. You will be led by an experienced tour guide through the stadium, learning more about its construction, the people behind the stadium and the ins and outs of events.
George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum
The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is located in Dallas, Texas on the Southern Methodist University Campus. The museum is filled with history and the presidency of George W. Bush. Further, there is a replica oval office available for photo opportunities. The museum includes coverage of moments that were hard on the United States of America, such as 9/11 and the passing of George H. W. Bush.
