Five Ways to Get Wet in DFW
Other Rent Cafe cities are shedding tears about the end of summer. Not us. We know that even after summer is officially over we’ve got weeks of heat remaining on the calendar. There is no better way to pass the lingering weeks of warm weather than to take a dip and get wet. Here are a couple awesome places to check out this summer and fall!
Over 3 Million Gallons of water, tons of rides, pools and a lazy river await you in Arlington at Hurricane Harbor. Sure, it’s touristy and yeah it can get crowded, but it has been around for almost 30 years, so they must be doing something right. Arrive early to beat the crowds. Hurricane Harbor is open every day June 1 to August 26.
Located in Fort Worth, Burger’s Lake features a 1 acre sized spring fed lake with sandy beaches, a full staff of certified lifeguards, tons of picnic tables and more over a 30 acre spread for a modest entry fee. Burger’s Lake is open 9:00 AM to 7:00 from Mother’s Day through Labor Day. Please be advised that the park still applies Prohibition Era law to entry.
Down of Lower Greenville is a neat little place called J. Pepe’s that features great Mexican food, drinks, live music and its very own pool! Drink and swim at your own risk of course.
If you have ever wanted to ride an artificial wave and go to the Apple Store, visit Adrenalina in Willow Bend Mall. The artificial wave is made of foam with high- speed water flowing across it, and it is super fun – WAIT, my bad. It’s totally tubular dude!
Too lazy to drive to Austin for some tubing and live music? Check out Rockin’ the River, a weekly concert/tubing series every Thursday starting in June near downtown Dallas with live music, the aforementioned tubing, and drinking galore. Why anyone would want to actually get in the Trinity River is beyond me, but to each his own right?
