At this Marty McFly–inspired Lower Greenville offering from Airbnb’ers Jeremy and Kelsey Turner, young and old alike will delight in everything from the cereal bar to the Nintendo (hello Super Mario Bros. 3 and Tetris). Add in all the retro furniture, and you’ll wake up wondering what year it is. Oh, and did we mention the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game? The ’80s called, and they’d like you to book a night with them.
Whether you’re doing an early-morning coffee run, grabbing a quick lunch, or enjoying a glass of wine while enjoying a fresh Neapolitan pizza or grilled steak, upscale Italian market CiboDivino is your spot. Added bonus: It’s kid-friendly, thanks to the patio-adjacent grassy knoll.
A sweet, warm doughnut. A cold scoop of ice cream. What do the two have in common? Besides being every kid’s favorite two sweet treats, not much. Until you put them together in one perfectly decadent dessert
Cool off with a refreshing dip at one of Dallas’ premier water parks: JadeWaters at the Hilton Anatole. While the pool is exclusive to hotel guests, with the handy ResortPass you can gain access to all JadeWaters has to offer, including its leisure pool and swim-up bar for the adults, and for the kids a splash and play area, a lazy river, two 180-foot slides, and myriad activities (can you say duck races?). Day passes start at $45 for adults and $35 for children (infants are free). And if you want to splurge, you can reserve a cabana for $450.
