  • Dallas Heritage Village

    1515 S. Harwood St. Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-421-5141

    A plethora of Victorian-style houses, pioneer homes and other old tyme-y buildings were brought in from neighboring cities and reassembled here to create a sort of interactive museum-slash-city park that’s a popular field-trip destination for the grade-school set. You can putter around in the old general store, watch a blacksmith hammering away, explore a 19th-century hotel and even pet the friendly donkeys at a small farm, all in the name of showing kids what life was like before Angry Birds came along. Plenty of shady trees make it an ideal picnicking spot.

  • WinStar Casino

    777 Casino Ave., Thackerville Oklahoma

    800-622-6317

    The glitz, glam and debauchery of Vegas may be a plane ride -- or an incredibly long road trip -- away, but the slot machines of WinStar are a mere 80-minute drive from downtown Dallas (45 if you already happen to be in Denton). The world’s second-largest casino, it is truly a sight to behold (don’t miss the ginormous glittering dragon suspended over one of the gaming tables). Besides acres of games ranging from penny slots to high-stakes poker, there’s also an attached 12-story hotel with an award-winning spa, and an event center that has hosted everyone from Lil Wayne to Tony Bennett.
