Whether you want some guided tours and touch tanks for the kids, would rather explore aquarium displays at your leisure, or simply want to see some majestic sea life, you'll have an absolute blast at the Dallas World Aquarium.

Sightsee exotic birds and sloths at the rainforest exhibit, catch a peek at endangered Orinoco crocodiles, or dive deep (not literally) into the underwater world with ancient sea dragons and alien-looking jellyfish. These amazing educational exhibits are sure to enthrall individuals and groups alike.

Do you like sharks and stingrays? Or do you prefer eagles and hummingbirds? How about reptilian creatures so otherworldly you swear they can't be real?

No matter your preference, you will enjoy these self-directed and guided tours. The Dallas World Aquarium has it all. From fun games to sea life exhibits, hands-on exhibits, and family fun for older kids and the full range of children ages, you won't be disappointed!

2. Be MESMERIZED with Musical Acts at the Historic Kessler Theater

Do you like musical performances, eclectic ensembles, or the Dallas Symphony Orchestra? If you're a fan of fun activities for adults, the Kessler Theater has you covered. Intimately accommodating up to 500 guests, this venue is one of the staples around Downtown Dallas.

With a full lobby bar and Reserved Gallery bar, the Kessler Theater is one of those indoor places you won't forget. Enjoy a memorable musical composition, see some stagecraft, or simply relax inside on a rainy day.

Not a far drive from East Dallas, South Dallas, or West Dallas, this premier flight museum is not your ordinary street museum. Learn about spacecraft and space flight the fun way.

Less than an hour from Fort Worth, this Dallas Museum is the flight museum kids and adults will love. Enjoy the best of downtown and north Dallas with this local and tourist favorite. If you have a knack for the sciences in general, don't forget the Perot Museum of Nature and Science as well.

5. Skate, Shop, and Chow Down at the Galleria Dallas Multiplex

This mixed-use culture and entertainment center in Dallas can keep you occupied for days. Boasting designer names like Luis Vuitton and Gucci, mainstream apparel brands, a massive food hall and food court, and art lovers' collectives (Asian art, anyone?), the Galleria Dallas is more than just a shopping mall.

Located in North Dallas, the Galleria brings visitors from South Dallas, East Dallas, Grand Prairie, and far beyond Dallas every single day. There's even an ice-skating rink where you can purchase admission and skate rentals. Who doesn't like falling at the ice-skating rink?

6. Bring the Kids to the Dallas Children's Theater in North Dallas

When around downtown Dallas, don't forget to bring the kids to the Dallas Children's Theater a tick east of North Dallas (or north of East Dallas). Is the Dallas summer heat too much? Bored on a rainy day?

This incredible venue offers dynamic teen programs, art lessons with known professionals, and all kinds of productions from designers, playwrights, and intellectuals.

For a similar experience, bring the kids to the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) teen program as well. There are many kid-friendly places in North Dallas and all of Dallas if you know where to look!
