10 Things To Do During The Summer

10 Things To Do During The Summer

Kendra Burleyson, Reporter

As the weather becomes warmer and the school year comes to close, many activities that weren’t available during the winter now are. There are many things to do around Denton and the Dallas/Fort Worth area but I am going to list the top ten go-to places for the summertime.

  • Fort Worth Zoo

The Fort Worth Zoo is a place to visit for all ages! There are many things do at the zoo besides just walking around and looking at the animals. Depending on the day, there are special events that have you interacting with the animals. If that doesn’t sound like a good time then I don’t know what does.

  • Dallas World Aquarium

  • Fort Worth Stockyards

The Fort Worth Stockyards is one place to embrace your inner cowboy. The Stockyards host cattle drives and serve all the country cuisine you can imagine. Night time is one of the best times in the Stockyards because the stores are open and there’s this buzz of excitement in the crowd.

  • Reunion Tower
