I heard about the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge and plan to check it out one of these days. It's not too far from where I live.

It's a wonderful place as long as you are prepared to be truly outdoors and in walking mode and in the company of someone like minded. :-)
You can learn all about plants/trees/creatures native to Texas and see some pretty neat things true to nature here.

It's a place that many schools and child care centers take large groups to visit. I've been with many a child care group and my husband actually accompanied our daughter with her school last year.

River Legacy in Arlington is similar, though not near as vast and has more indoor stuff to visit.

^ Thanks, I'm looking for a good outdoors place to do things, such as hike and bike (once I get a bike!). I know once it gets really hot, it won't be a fun place to visit. But I hope to check it out (such as the $20 canoe tour) over the next month.

Joe T's is for tourists. Take them to Esparanza's. That place faces North Main. They have a bar and an excellent Mexican bakery. They also open at six AM and offer menudo on weekends.

I *never* take visitors to botanic gardens, (art, science or natural history) museums, or zoos when they visit - in most instances, other cities have those things. I try to take them to places that are *unique* to the area where they are visiting, so for Fort Worth and Dallas, considering that you only have them visiting for 2 days, my list would be:

- Sixth Floor Museum (see, the only exception to my museum rule!) in Dallas. Hands down the best thing about Dallas, IMO
- Stockyards
- Cowboys Stadium tour (even for family member who are not football fans, everyone gets a kick of of this)
- Main Street Grapevine, and a visit to the Gaylord Texan

Enjoy your visit with family!
