Spring into break and explore the top 5 local attractions
March 8, 2016
Spring break. Two of the best words to any hard-working student’s ears after long hours at Coppell High School. Plan to stay in town and visit local favorites ranging from eating at Dallas food trucks to exploring Fort Worth for classic Texas fun; in a place like Coppell, the possibilities are endless. Make the most of your ‘staycation’ and check out this list for five local ideas to do during spring break.
- Try something new
We live in a busy metropolitan area. Is there a restaurant you have always wanted to try, but have not had the time to? Go to Klyde Warren Park and try some of the best food trucks or better yet, stay local and check out one of the restaurants that was voted Best of Coppell. Grab a friend, and go try something new!
- Go to a live event
This is a popular idea for people during spring break. Thirty-six percent of people in a public survey of 110 people voted that supporting your local teams, or watching live music was one of the best ways to spend spring break; catch a Stars or Mavs game. Plus, there is so many nightlife opportunities around Dallas, from sporting events to concerts – there is something for everyone.
- Visit the Stockyards
A true Texan favorite, even though visiting the Stockyards in Fort Worth takes a little bit of travelling time. In a public survey of 110 people, twenty-eight percent of local Texans said that the Stockyards are the best location for a day-trip. At the Stockyards, you can visit a rodeo, tour the historic downtown, and of course, try some authentic Texas barbeque.
- Go to the Zoo
If you are in the mood to do something a little wild when the weather is nice, go to the zoo. See the newest member of the Fort Worth Zoo, a baby western lowland gorilla, or check out some of the attractions at the Fort Worth Zoo for $14 admission.
- Hit the good ‘ol swimmin’ hole
Another Texan favorite. You can drive a mere 20 minutes to enjoy a sunny afternoon on the shores of Lake Grapevine. You can swim, fish, boat and more on the open water. You can even stay after dark to see the stars over the water – a truly beautiful sight.
Whether you are ready to leave town and go to your favorite spring break location, or try out some of the events listed above, have an awesome spring break.
