Three Great Summer Activities

One month down and just one and a half to go! Summer will be over before we know it. If you are wondering what to do with your remaining time, then check out some of my favorite picks for area summer activities.

There are so many fun choices all over the metroplex, but I narrowed it down to my favorite three. Then I threw in an alternate! Let's go!

1. Family Fun Fridays at the Arboretum

Summers at The Arboretum are splendid. The current feature is the Gary Lee Price "Celebrate the Children" exhibit of sculptures. These sculptures are so much fun to see. Be sure to check out Family Fun Fridays going on now through July 28th. There will be a petting zoo and face painting as well as other family fun activities.

2. 24th Annual Killis Melton's Ice Cream Crank-Off

On July 21st you won't want to miss the annual Ice Cream Crank-Off in downtown McKinney at Chestnut Square. Celebrate National Ice Cream Day bigly! There will be plenty of food vendors and TONS of ice cream. Also on the agenda are pony rides, face painting, balloon art, and a magic show. 

3. LIVE 80 - Ultimate 80's Experience

The third item on my list of summer fun is the LIVE 80 - Ultimate 80's Experience at Legacy Food Hall Box Garden on August 16th. The concert is a free event and a great excuse to check out all the food vendors at Legacy Hall. My current favorite food stall is the Shwarma Bar   

Indoor Alternate - Dior: From Paris To The World

Now if you are not one that enjoys the heat of the Texas summer, then I have a fantastic indoor activity for you. Check out a Day With Dior at the Dallas Museum of Art. On July 19th you can stay late and watch the film "Dior and I" (The film is rated R)

Now that I have shared my favorite picks let me know your favorite summer activities.
