“Staycations” can be just as much fun as getting out of town, especially in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. There are plenty of fun hotels and mini-getaways around us that make for a wonderful end of summer weekend. Here are a few of our picks:
This well-known Grapevine installation is a must-see at some point for you and your family! The Gaylord Texan is an unbelievable resort and convention center with unbeatable rooms, restaurants, and amenities. Specifically for the summer months, you need to see the Paradise Springs water park. With multiple pools and slides to choose from, a lazy river, and a crazy water jungle gym, you’ll certainly have plenty to do. Plus, Summerfest is going on until September 3, so it is a good time to book! If you want a completely different seasonal experience, book a holiday stay. The resort goes all out with beautiful decorations and an incredible ice sculpture display.
The Four Seasons Dallas at Las Colinas
This resort may be better for a weekend away with your significant other; the Four Seasons is serene and incredibly relaxing. With beautiful rooms to choose from, golf, tennis, a luxurious spa, and a wonderful restaurant, this place is an easy, romantic escape from busy everyday life.
Great Wolf Lodge
When I was little, my family and I went to Great Wolf Lodge annually! To this day, it is one of my favorite places for all of the memories that I have there. We always went in the winter; there was something so fun about being at an indoor waterpark in January. However, they have both an indoor area and outdoor park for summer. This resort is the perfect staycation for families year-round, with an assortment of amenities and fun activities for kids.
The Westin Stonebriar Hotel and Golf Club
Further north, a lavish resort option is the Westin Stonebriar Hotel and Golf Club. This luxury resort is beautiful; there are a variety of room styles to choose from, delicious dining options, golf, a spa, and a pool all in the booming area of Frisco.
The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
If you really feel like treating yourself, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is an amazing choice for a quick getaway. The hotel is impeccably designed and has a rich history that anyone would love to immerse themselves in.
