With winter fast approaching and the library about to close down storytime for a month, I was hoping to get some advice on interesting places (museums, holiday events, etc.) that my toddler and infant might enjoy. Any suggestions? Thanks!

What can I do next?

Everybodys suggestions are great for going places. Just wanted to give a heads up if you head to the Gaylord. Parking has gone up this year to $14. We went last weekend for kids Christmas pics and it is a wonderful place to just spend time looking at eveything but not for focused pics of the kids unless they are good at tuning out everything lol we took 70 pics and I had one that they both were looking at me. But they loved going and are asking to go again.

The first things that come to mind are:
Gaylord Texan - Great displays this time of year - or all year.
Bass Pro Grapevine
Trains at Northpark
Mall Play areas (Vista Ridge has one)

Be sure to check out Family eGuide. We feature lots of special events and activities in Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, and all of the surrounding communities, including Carrollton: http://familyeguide.com/Home.html Specific events can be found on our online calendar. We also send out a newsletter each Wednesday with the following week's activities - be sure to sign up.

Good luck!

We hit cabela's (out on 35W & 170 kind of by the Nascar track) pretty often to see the fish & the stuffed animals - my husband & I refer to it as the free zoo!

Northpark has the train display for Christmas, the Dallas World Aquarium is awesome, The Gaylord is fun just to walk through-it's all done up for Christmas & if you spend $25 in food, your parking is validated

Lots of Barnes & Nobles do a story time.

Hope some of this helps! I'm sure there is lots more but my mommy brain is in slow motion :)
