Southfork Ranch

Reviewed By rkatao - Seattle, Washington

Not much to see here. The house was used for the exterior filming of the tv show but that's about it. Upper floor was being renovated so they gave us post cards to show us what it used to look like. Little cemetery for JR, Jock and Miss Ellie.

In-Sync Exotics

Reviewed By hebkram - usa

This place is just awesome. There is no glitz or glamour here. Raw muddy ground, all natural, huge cages filled with big cats. These animals are majestical to watch. My kids and the adults all enjoyed watching the big cat behaviors and interaction with one another. All the employees seemed sincerely concerned for the health and safety of the cats. They welcome volunteers to help out which is a great opportunity to get a more up-close account on the life of big cats. There were other small animals on the grounds. It’s a nice place to explore for a couple of hours. It’s not a huge park that you’d be exhausted of walking around in and the animals are close enough to each other that you are always excited to see what’s in the next section. Admission fees are low. Donate if you can for the conservation of these beasts.

Blackland Prairie Raptor Center

Reviewed By Kathy C - Dallas, Texas

Love Love Love this Center! We got to sit through a very fun educational presentation. We were told the background story of each raptor which was wonderful. We were taught what not to do when we encounter these beautiful creatures and we got an up close look at them as well. There are trails you can walk through and plenty of picnic tables for lunch. Beautiful lake front surroundings. One of my very favorite parts was touching real wings and talons!! Amazing experience for us!! All of the volunteers were friendly, patient, and very informed.

The Brick Tavern

Reviewed By DeepBlueDives - Richardson, Texas

Not sure how this is set up as an attraction - but it is a Bar.

We didn't eat at this stop on our motorcycle ride, but we fealt right at home since we were on the bikes. There is a small patio area with picnic tables, and then when you enter, the bar is on the left, pool tables to the right, with additional seating mixed around.

We stopped for conversation and drinks with friends. Service was walk up to the bar only, and there weren't any wait staff. Didn't matter for us. There are a few taps, but nothing special. Run of the mill big establishments - not even a Shiner.

Smoking is allowed inside and out on the patio. It is a local hang out, and was popular with the motorcycle riders. Several MC clubs were mingling, and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

I wouldn't venture in here with a family, but if you are looking for a good watering hole while out riding the bike - stop on in.

Future Flight

Reviewed By Lee M - Gloucester Point, Virginia

The powered parachute pilot, Dave, is an expert in his field and provided an amazing experience. He went over the whole pre-flight check with me, explained how the take-off would occur, what we would do in flight, and how the landing would work. He asked if there were any questions, and made me feel totally at ease. Whether you are interested in experiencing a flight, ask questions about the sport, or seek recommendations on equipment, this is the place to go.

Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

Nature Reserve, garden, hiking trails and nature center provides an escape to nature.

Reviewed By Hollis P - Westampton, New Jersey

We needed to get outside on a beautiful winter day and decided on a visit to the Heard Natural Science Museum. Our first stop was at the visitor center to get tickets and a map. The fee of $50.00 was reasonable for four adults and two children. The center offers several exhibits on the main and lower floors. There is a small gift shop that is conveniently stocked with many items under $5.00. After exploring the inside exhibits, head outside to the trails. Be careful. You will encounter some scary animated dinosaurs along the way. There is a frontier town which is actually a group of playhouses. Live animals are also located near this area. There are several spots with picnic tables to enjoy lunch or a snack.

Heritage Hill Equestrian Center

Reviewed By Tim E - Dallas, Texas

DESCRIPTION
* Nice facility with super friendly owner and staff. The trail ride was a little uneventful and short, but it was completely safe and fun. After we were finished with the trail ride, the guide took us into the coral and taught my daughter and friends how to trot the horse. That was unexpected and something the girls enjoyed a lot.

PROS
* Only $25 for a 1 hour trail ride (great price)
* The staff works hard to make sure you feel comfortable and safe in the saddle
* The guide took us into the coral for practice before and after the ride

CONS
* Would like to see more trail variations. It may have been offered, but I am unaware
* It's about a 45 minute drive from the North Dallas area

Breckinridge Park

Reviewed By Brendan K

Breckinridge is the largest park in Richardson and has something for everyone. The first thing to know is that it has multiple access points. Most people enter from Renner Road by the fire station but you can access it from Brand on the East, Northstar(Beck) from the west and Breckinridge Blvd. on the Southside. The park has trails for walking and biking accessible from the Bridge on the Southside and there is a 3.5 mile paved biking walking path that winds through the park. You can add another mile or so if you include the road that circumscribes the soccer fields. Rowett Creek cuts through the southside of the park and includes a small spillway before continuing on through Firewheel Golfcourse. There is a small lake in the center of the park and two containment lakes on either side of Renner Road that can be fished. A gazebo with picnic tables is situated next to the lake which can be reserved for parties through the City of Richardson's Parks and Rec Dept. There are also two sizable Pavilions on the East side (off Brand) that are reservable. Next to the pavilions are two play areas for kids that are well maintained. Finally, there is a excellent baseball field at Renner and Brand that can be reserved for league play. So get out and explore!

Reviewed By Kathy G - Dallas, Texas

Wanted my sisters and niece to have an unforgettable girls weekend in Dallas. This was so much fun !! It was a sunny day when we took the llamas on a 21/2 hour walk in a beautiful park. We learned so much about the llamas from Momma and Daddy llama. Too be so close to these big animals was breathtaking. We got terrific pictures and a book that Mama Llama published that will be precious to children and adults alike.I would go back and do it again. What wonderful stewards Sharon and Paul are with these animals. It makes you want to be apart of this worthwhile mission.
