    • Where to stay?

      Dallas Mar 26, 2014 at 1:01 PM

      My two brothers, my father and I will be visiting the Dallas area this coming June for a long weekend. We will be catching a few baseball games and are wondering what is the best location to stay for tourist attractions. We will have a car to get to the ballpark so we are more concerned with staying in a good location in terms of tourist attractions, good atmosphere, and getting the best overall feel for Texas. After doing some research I'm kind of confused if I should be looking just right in downtown Dallas, or if something like Market Place or West End is better? Thanks for the help!

      First I want to know if it will be warm enough for us to swim? We miss the beaches, so for sure want to do that. Where is the best beach? Where is the best area to go for site seeing and to do cool things? Bascially open for anything fun and not tooo expensive. We are parents of 3 girls and just want to get away and have alone time and relax from our crazy busy lives. Thanks.

      also maybe name some good hotels that are nice but cheap.

      by one_beachlvr Online Now Aug 5, 2008 at 7:12 AM

      I and another single mom girlfriend are traveling to South Padre this weekend. We can only splurge on one meal for us and our boys (11, 11 and 8). I'm looking for a fun restaurant on the water (bayside), and if they'd let us make reservations for Friday night, even better. If no reservation, how would you suggest we get a good view of the fireworks on the bay?

      If you have any fun, affordable, activity suggestions, they are welcome too.
