Around Big D
That's north Texas for the uninformed, y'all!
You ask, what's so special about this part of the world?,
It's not winter wonderland, but then who wants to shovel frozen white water? And then it's also not the jungle, but we'll admit the summers do sometimes get a bit warm.
- Places To Go
- We call the sleepy bedroom community of Flower Mound home, it's just north of the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
- Things To Do, i.e., sporting things to do other than the Dallas
Cowboys and the Texas
Rangers, they're alright, but not all there is to do as some believe.
- Visit the Texas Motor Speedway.
Lots of racing with Indy Racing
League cars and NASCAR Winston
Cup cars, Busch Grand National cars, Craftsman trucks, sprint cars, Legends
cars and other racing events.
- For those that do enjoy winter sports, hockey has become big time sports
in the DFW area with the Dallas
Stars, and the Fort
- Another sport we do in the Dallas area is lots boating and sailing.
Many might wonder where can you find enough "big" water to do some serious
sailing in Texas. Well, you see the metroplex area is surrounded by large
lakes, not Great Lakes size but still pretty big. We use Lake Lewisville,
alias Lake Dallas or Little Elm Reservoir, for sailboat cruising and racing
at the Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club.
Wakeboarding, kneeboarding, skiing, tubing and other power boat activities
take place on Lake Lewisville and Grapevine Lake.
- The newest sport we're into is geocaching, hunting for "treasures"
in local parks or on other public grounds with a GPS and then trading
treasure. There are around 140 caches of various kinds located within
100 miles of the DFW area. If you like hiking or discovering new parks,
etc., try this new sport. For more information go to http://www.geocaching.com
and have fun.
