More Summer Activities!

I just keep stumbling across all the free things there are to do in the Dallas area (and who wants to wait for Friday to share such great deals?!) over the summer so instead of posting them all individually I am going to do it in a single blog. If you missed some of the past posts and don't want to dig for them all you need to do is hit the freebies link!

Drop In Art at SMU-Join us as we celebrate the reign of King Charles IV and Queen MarĂ­a Luisa in late 18th-early 19th century Spain. Drop in the education studio to create your own work of art. Each day in this series will feature a different activity that is appropriate for families and children of all ages. Free; no advance registration required. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Select Sundays, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
May 16 and 30; June 13, 27, July 11, 25, August 8, 22

Free McKinney Avenue Trolley Rides-The M-Line gives you an opportunity to ride back into history
on the only transit line in North Texas that operates lovingly restored antique electric trolley cars running on some of Dallas's oldest original trolley tracks.

Interurban Railroad Museum-Located in downtown Plano, the Interurban Railway Museum is housed in a building that served as a primary stop on the Texas Electric Railway that ran from Denison to Dallas beginning in 1908. On December 31, 1948, the Denison to Dallas Interurban made its last run.

The station remained closed until early 1990 when a complete restoration of the building was completed and the building was converted into a museum by the City of Plano. The museum exhibit contains many artifacts associated with the Interurban Line, as well as a history of Plano.

Not in the Dallas area? SavvySource has a great list of activities for most major metropolitan areas.
