Heritage Village is a fun place to learn history

Flag review

We went to Heritage Village in Dallas, TX as part of our history lesson surrounding American history. The kids had a hands-on lesson by visiting all the houses and listening to the provided tour guides. They liked the school house and the doctor's office the best.

Tips for Families

Great afternoon in a beautiful place if the weather is nice.

Great Family Skiing in Beaver Creek, CO

Flag review

We love skiing at Beaver Creek. It is great for all levels of skiers and has a good ski school. There are also non-skiing activities like ice skating and tubing. The trails vary widely across the hill and you are sure to find a favorite one or two that will keep you busy all day. The restaurants throughout the Vail Valley can't be beat. Don't overlook this destination for the summer. We go yearly to enjoy hiking, biking, riding the chairlift, summer sports and eating at a reduced rate.

Tips for Families

We always rent accommodations with a kitchen which can make it more kid-friendly to eat. My kids never did well on eating out 3 times a day {besides the expense of that!} Summer is a great time to try it for the first time. The rates are cheaper and there is TONS of things to do for kids. In fact, there will be a ton of kids there. My kids always find new friends to spend the day with and I have to go hunt them down after bedtime!

Legoland Discovery Center - 1 hour of fun

Flag review

Legoland Discovery Center is a small play center completely themed with LEGOs. It has 3 rides - shooting ride, a driving ride and another up/down ride, but you don't really go there for the rides. It has a theater that runs 3-4 Lego movies. A big climbing area, a building/racing area and a very loud karaoke area. My favorite part is miniland Dallas - where Dallas is reduced to the size of minifigures.

Tips for Families

When you see the price, you assume that it is going to take up the better part of a day, but there is just not that much to do there. It is also so loud and crowded, that most adults can't handle more than an hour. I recommend a season pass - the Merlin one will get you into Sealife Aquarium and all the Legoland attractions. Then you don't mind popping in for just an hour at a time. Do NOT go on a weekend. The line can be hours long. It is ridiculous. You can literally wait in line longer than you want to stay inside. The food isn't bad, but the music is so loud in the eating area that you may want to bring earplugs. If the karaoke area is being used, you will definitely need them.

New Dallas Museum GREAT for kids

Flag review

We visited the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas in the first month. The exhibits are amazing. We started with the space, dinosaur and bird exhibits on the 4th floor and then continued through energy, minerals and weather on the 3rd floor, Human body and Texas land on 2nd floor and then Sports on the 1st floor. There is also a large Kids Museum on the 1st floor dedicated to kids 5 and under. Each exhibit has tons of interactive things for kids to do. We spent 3 hours the first time and have returned again a few weeks later for another 3 hour visit. The favorite places are the weather area - feel an earthquake, make your own newscast and the sports area where you can race a dinosaur.

Tips for Families

The season pass for families near Dallas is worth it. Be sure to pre-buy tickets {or save them if you have a season pass} for busy days because they do sell out. The good news is that even on a busy day, they control the crowd to a point that doesn't seem overwhelming.

Good Vacation for 3 grade school aged boys

Flag review

Legoland has everything that my boys love - LEGOs, light rollercoasters, a waterpark and building experiences. They had a great time and would love to return. We spent a week and visited the park each day. We spent one day at the waterpark. I was disappointed in how crowded the park was during off-season due to the many school groups of SMALL children. I also wish they had a sit-down restaurant on site like there is at the San Diego park.

Tips for Families

Season passes are available for just Legoland, but we found that the Merlin Entertainment Family pass was a cheaper route. It can also be used at Legoland Discovery Centers and Sealife Aquariums. Expect it to be crowded even in off-season. There were tons of school buses with thousands of small children. We were there before school was released, yet would leave the park at certain times because the crowds were just too much.
