A visit to Dallas is a perfect opportunity for you and your students to relax, and take part in unforgettable educational activities! This diverse city offers a wide range of attractions, from theme parks for thrill-seekers to chill options for those wanting a more laid-back experience. Here are some of the unique, exciting things your student group can do when they visit Dallas.
Dallas World Aquarium
Located in the West End Historic District, the Dallas World Aquarium houses hundreds of species of fish, mammals and exotic birds. Your students will never get bored! The hundreds of exhibits guarantee a full-day trip and hours of educational fun. It’s a great place to relax, and learn about various aquatic animals and conservation.
For those looking for a quick snack between exhibits, the aquarium’s two cafés and restaurant offer something for everyone.
Dinner and Jousting at Medieval Times
Experience a show unlike any other at Medieval Times, and enjoy a hearty dinner while you’re at it! This immersive show will transport your students hundreds of years into the past for an evening of 11th century-style life. It’s perfect for anyone interested in medieval history! The professional actors will impress your students with their jousting skills, as well as their hospitality.
After the jousting, you’ll be treated to a meal fit for royalty, with various dietary options available. We can’t stress enough how amazing and unique this experience is; there aren’t many people who can claim that they have seen live jousting!
Six Flags Over Texas
This is a must for your students, especially those who enjoy a good thrill. One of the most popular attractions in Dallas, Six Flags Over Texas features dozens of rides, activities and live shows that will entertain the whole group. Your students will have the opportunity to let loose and enjoy a well-deserved break from their studies.
This is another attraction that will take up a whole day and wear out your students, so make sure to leave enough time for everyone to recover before their next exciting activity!
Lunch and Golf at Top Golf
Top Golf Dallas is an entertainment destination that offers much more than golf. The venue has three 18-hole miniature golf courses, batting cages, an outdoor patio with fire pits, and a full-service restaurant. Your students can also play a variety of golf games, ranging in difficulty from absolute beginner to expert!
A trip to Top Golf isn’t complete without delicious food, so be sure to stop by the restaurant and check out their selection of appetizers, flatbreads, burgers, and salads.
Music in the Parks Festival
The Dallas Music in the Parks Festival is an annual event for student bands and choral groups that provides a fun, educational, and safe musical experience. Competing in this festival will not only be fun for your students but will also provide their group with increased visibility since people from all over the United States and Canada take part in the festival.
Every group receives a trophy, and is rewarded with a trip to an amusement park afterward! It just doesn’t get any better than this!
Students traveling and performing go hand in hand. Band Performance and travel also go well together; so why not travel with your students to have a performance opportunity that will create unforgettable memories?
