Places You Need to Visit Before School Starts


Goodbye, SummerTechnically, summer isn’t over until September 22, which is roughly a month and some change away. If you ask the kids, though, they’ll likely say it’s over the minute the school bell rings.

 

If you haven’t gotten around to doing those things (or visiting those places) you say you will over the summer, maximize your time now and take in all that D-FW has to offer before it’s too late.

Goodbye, Summer


Goodbye, Summer

Technically, summer isn’t over until September 22, which is roughly a month and some change away. But, if you ask the kids, they’ll likely say it’s over the minute they find themselves back in the classroom, which is just around the corner, too.

If you haven’t gotten around to doing those things you always say you’ll do over the summer, maximize your time and take in all that DFW has to offer before it’s too late.
