Hi! My family is moving from Sacramento California to Fort Worth Texas in February 2015. We will be driving there with a moving truck and another car. We have 3 children. What are some fun or cool things to see and do on the way to make the trip more enjoyable for our children? Any recommendations on how to travel that far with three young kids? Ages 7, 3, and 4. They have gone a trips that were 8 hours but we always drove at night. Any help would be awesome! Thank you!

Don't iPads solve these car ride problems?

Also: Must prepare the tykes to accept and glory in the Dallas Cowboys culture. They will be swimming in it.

I highly recommend visiting the McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis. I took my grandson there during one of our cross country trips and he had a great time.

^^Sage advice. In fact, if you have the time, take the mountain scenic loop that the McDonald observatory is on. Very nice little drive that will maybe add an extra hour to your trip. Well worth it.

Don't worry about becoming a Cowboys fan. It's not a prerequisite for living in Texas.

You and your kids are in for a treat. Fort Worth is a great city to raise a family in - so much to do with kids! Good luck. I hope your family loves Fort Worth as much as mine does. We don't live there but we live close enough to enjoy it regularly.

Yeah. Just ask all the bandwagoners and fans of OTHER teams who live here...
