There's no better way to escape the Texas heat than by taking a dip in the cool waters of the Trinity River. Spend the day kayaking, canoeing and even trying your hand at stand-up paddleboarding with Backwoods Paddlesports. You just need to supply the parental supervision. Backwoods opens for the season in Spring Drive-in movies are no longer a thing of the past. Kids of all ages will enjoy wandering through this urban park complete with an active, aerating and quiet pool.
