100 Things to Do in Dallas Fort Worth Before You Die – My Bonus Review
This 142-page well-written quick reference book is packed with a lot of concise information from dining, to entertainment, to recreational opportunities to culture and history, and even shopping in the Dallas and Fort Worth area.
We used to travel to Dallas and Fort Worth a lot. We’ve done many of things mentioned in this book like visiting the Dallas World Aquarium and the Fort Worth Zoo. It was always hard finding good authentic restaurants to try that were not chain restaurants. We based eating at Uncle Julio’s the first time, due to the number of cars surrounding the restaurant. I want to try the restaurant Annie Lennox tried and loved. It would’ve been nice to have seen some photos of the actual restaurant fronts or even some food itself the author tried.
Tui mentions these surrounding area delights of the Scarborough Faire which is a superior Renaissance faire, especially on a light rainy day. Did not know about the Granbury Paranormal Expo held the last weekend in September nor about the Munster Mansion. What is really buried in Aurora, Texas?
Love the suggested itineraries by interests and season. Next time when I’m in the Metroplex area, I’ll know to head to the Annie Lennox restaurant and check out what’s buried at Aurora.
