The weather is starting to warm up and flowers are beginning to bloom again here in Allen, TX and we know what that means. Spring break is right around the corner! Time to start planning some family fun; whether a day-cation or stay-cation, Allen has the perfect mix of fun attractions, restaurants, and outdoor adventure for the whole family!
Spring into the Action
Surprise the family with a fun-filled day of paintball! Giant Party Sports in Allen offers the most exciting paintball and airsoft experience around, featuring four themed fields. The airsoft experience is designed to be a safe, low-impact version of Paintball perfect for kids and adults to play together, making for an unforgettable family experience!
Keep the Spring Break fun going at PINSTACK with a little friendly family competition. Strike out in a game of bowling, climb to the top of the world on their rock-climbing wall, or tiptoe your way across beams and ropes on PINSTACK’S high ropes course. After all that and more, indulge in loads of cheese and your choice of toppings with their giant 36-inch pizza for families!
Be sure to also check out Allen’s very own Jurassic Park. Grab a backpack full of dino bait, a jungle hat, and binoculars when you tour The Dinosaur Company’s facility. But don’t make any sudden moves before the T-rex snaps! These life-like animatronics will wow the kiddos and make for the perfect photo-op!
Take in Some Fresh Air
Enjoy the fresh spring air at The Edge at Allen Station Park located on the south end of Allen Station Park. The complex features a concrete skate park, two roller-hockey rinks, and BMX track! The skate park is one of the largest outdoor facilities of its kind in the state. Wonder who’ll be pulling out those bike tricks; you or the kiddos?!
Plan to also check out one of Allen’s hidden gems, Connemara Nature Preserve, a 72-acre natural oasis that makes a picnic in the meadow one your family will remember for years to come. Visitors from all around DFW venture out every season to explore our very own “Nature’s Playground.”
Tee Up the Fun
Spring means greener greens to tee off at Allen’s world-class golf courses! Consider teeing up at The Courses at Watters Creek. Its three courses and 33 holes make for a great time for golfers of any skill level and length of play. Or, you can explore the beauty of The Golf Club at Twin Creeks, an Arnold Palmer Signature Course with scenic views of Allen’s Spring greenery. For a less traditional take on the sport, take your swing to Topgolf, where entertainment meets some friendly competition!
