It was past time for our visit to the Dallas Arboretum and this past Friday seemed like the perfect day. We got there early and used our free tickets to get in. If you are wondering how I got free tickets to the Dallas Arboretum then you did not read my post on Free tickets to the Dallas Arboretum. 🙂
We have been to the Arboretum several times and decided to pay the $3.00 per person to go to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden (Tony and Emerson have been before without me). The total cost for the three of us would have been $64.00, but we paid $9.00. Yep, all we paid was $9.00! 🙂
Walking around the gardens will give you time to really appreciate nature. It really is a beautiful sight and it is very peaceful. Doesn’t it look like we have the whole garden to ourselves? There are plenty of opportunities to stop, take pictures, and enjoy the scenery.
Yes, the Adventure Garden has interactive activities! We had just as much fun as Emerson. He especially loved the water activities and the Stairway to the Clouds treehouse. There is so much to do and there is learning all around. The good thing is that the kids can explore and touch everything without breaking anything. Truly a fun time for all!
Now, the indoor exploration center was the best part of the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. Why? It is inside and air conditioned! LOL!! This lab has interactive tables and computers for the kids to play with as well as microscopes and opportunities to just walk around and explore nature. All of that is cool, but the Globe Room is AWESOME! They have a staff person inside that gives information about the planets and runs a board that controls this huge OmniGlobe. Some information that can be seen on this OmniGlobe are past hurricanes, wild fires, volcanoes, old world maps, etc… from all around the world! I loved this part! The globe would just light up in different colors and rotate.
If you are looking for something fun to do with your family this summer be sure to visit the Dallas Arboretum and the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. Go as early as possible and make sure that you put on sunblock! Our visit to the Dallas Arboretum and Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden was a great way to spend family time and add to Emerson’s summer enrichment. We will definitely be back in the fall because it was H-O-T!!
What fun family activities do you have planned this summer?
