This Building is really in the centre of Denton, surrounded by shops. Everyone likes to come here, doing something on the yard such as picnic or yoga, or just sitting and watching people. Parking around the square is free after 06.00 pm. We didn't go to see the museum as it was closed by the time we're there. The building self is a beauty.

I am scared of getting in the water. So to overcome my fear decided to do do flyboarding. The board was very heavy and struggled at first, but Kolbe the instructor encourgaed and I did OK for a first timer. I will definitely be back soon.
The staff is very friendly and made the whole experience awesome.

The tour was very educational and fun, our group learned quite a bit on the process of Rum, Vodka, Bourbon, and Whiskey. I thought we would have more than 3 tastings but it was still a good tour. The drinks we had afterwards were very...MoreThank you, Shayla! Although we generally offer 4 tastings on the tour, if there is anything else that you'd like to sample, our bartenders will be more than happy to help. Please come see us again soon!

Reviewed By IGoByHarley - Daytona Beach, Florida

We are golfers and this experience is great if you just want to hang out with friends and hit balls. It's very social and allows for fun interaction and competition. I'd give this place a 5-star rating because the couple of people we interacted with were very friendly. However, my husband's watch went missing from the table and we never found it. Also, you "have to" sign up as a membership (just $5) and we were told that we wouldn't get inundated with emails. But, I got 5 emails the next day. I had to unsubscribe. We'll go to another TopGolf facility in the near future, but we'll watch our belongings more closely. Also, keep tabs on what you're spending. It's easy to overspend with the drinks, golf time and food.

Reviewed By LT_Dallas - Dallas

Love the comfy seats and getting food and drinks is a nice bonus. Food is pretty good. Only thing I would change - (1) a blanket would be even better and (2) service seems to stop once movie starts so can't get drink refills or popcorn refills

The beach is great place to relax and dip in the lake. There's fire pits and volleyball courts, which makes great people watching. There's also nice hiking trails in the northern part of the park, great place for an evening stroll.

The Tribute at the Colony

A famous Scottish golf course designed by Tripp Davis.

Reviewed By scottygator94 - Aubrey, Texas

This is a destination golf course in the North DFW Metroplex, and the layout is pretty amazing. right on the shores of Lake Lewisville, an 18-hole course has been constructed where every single hole is a replica of a famous hole from a course in the British Isles. Because the wind is ALWAYS blowing on this course, you can stand on the first tee and imagine yourself at St. Andrews; in fact, the 1st, 17th, and 18th holes are all replicas of the same holes at the Old Course, the home of golf, complete with the burn that runs in front of the 1st green and meanders underneath a copy of the Swilcan Bridge just paces from the 18th tee!

Things to be wary of: 1.) unlike in the British Isles, there are snakes aplenty at The Tribute, and many are venomous, so if you venture off into the native areas or near the creeks (or near the lake to the left of #6 and #7), take a club with you. I have seen a couple of cottonmouths as big around as my lower leg (especially in the canal that bisects #2), and quite a few copperheads, too.

2.) The driving range and practice area is quite a walk from the parking lot; if the cart guys aren't busy, they'll typically give you a ride down to the range in a cart...make sure to tip them a couple of bucks for their trouble.

3.) The course stays busy. As a result, the greens can get pretty beat up, and run on the slow/bumpy side. Just hit your short putts firm, and don't let it take away from the fact that you're playing a really fun golf course, even if it takes you 5+ hours to play 18 holes.

The clubhouse also serves as a hotel, with a pretty decent bar and restaurant. There isn't much else within 5 miles, so if you go, plan on staying on site. If you have a car, though, venture out to LoneStar Taps and Caps (about 15 mins south on FM 423), or just go to the Tom Thumb supermarket (which carries a pretty good selection of Texas brews).

Little Chapel in the Woods

Built in 1939, the Little Chapel has been named one of Texas’ 20 most outstanding architectural achievements; it was designed by the late O’Neil Ford. TWU art students designed the stained glass windows which depict the theme "Woman Ministering to Human Needs".

Reviewed By SCUBA_Fletch - Frisco, Tx

I got married in this chapel in 1993 - and it is one of the most beautiful and quaint chapels around, located on the Texas Women's University campus. Beautiful stained glass windows with details of the Proverbs 31 woman, it's the perfect place for a SMALL wedding. We did just that, and had a big reception nearby at Hubbard Hall.

Hydrous Wakeboard Park

Reviewed By GINNY - Dallas, Texas

My boys took a week of 3 hour wake boarding lessons here at the park. The boys were both up and wake boarding within a few days and couldn't wait to go back. They are both 14 years old. There were boys and girls much younger in the class did well also.

The restaurant next-door is a great place to wait. They made it very comfortable especially in the heat, to wait through the kids lessons. It will be wonderful once the construction on El Dorado is finished.
