Keep Cool, DFW: Best North Texas Summer Destinations

Posted In: Events

Getting cabin fever during this July heat wave? This stretch of 100-degree days doesn’t have to put a hamper on your summer. Mustang Lakes has rounded up some of the best North Texas summer destinations where you can plan a day of fun and stay cool.

Frontier Park Splash Pad

Less than 10 minutes from Mustang Lakes, Prosper’s beloved Frontier Park features a wonderful splash pad with interactive water features for the kids. With excessive heat warnings in place, morning is the best time to enjoy the splash pad before the heat of the day. It’s also open through Labor Day!

Thrown Axe Company

Stay in the A/C and compete against friends at Thrown Axe Company in Downtown Celina. This DFW entertainment venue opened last spring and offers multiple caged target areas, as well as snacks and beverages available to purchase. They also introduced an axe throwing toy game for younger kids to join in on the fun.

The Cove at Lakefront

This indoor water park is the perfect reprieve from the summer sun! The Cove at Lakefront in Little Elm showcases a deep pool, lazy river, FlowRider wave simulator, cabanas, and a huge interactive play structure.

North Texas Escape Rooms

Located near Mustang Lakes in McKinney, North Texas Escape Rooms offer a variety of puzzles and themes that are perfect for all ages and group sizes. Choose between 45- or 60-minute experiences and gather family and friends to challenge yourself to “escape” from the game room.

Meow Wolf Grapevine

The immersive art sensation is finally open in Grapevine Mills mall! Meow Wolf Grapevine is a 30,000-square-foot, mind-bending art experience. The exhibit features a massive collaboration between Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico-based artists. Families can interact with the installations to solve a mystery.


The Colony’s entertainment destination offers multiple fabulous indoor venues for fun: Puttery, Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, and Immersive Gamebox.

Puttery is an indoor, adults-only mini golf course and bar. Choose between four immersive courses and enjoy craft cocktails and delicious food.

For a family-friendly venture, Immersive Gamebox offers social adventures in interactive smart rooms featuring motion tracking, touch screens, and surround sound. There are adult options like Squid Game and kid-friendly games including Paw Patrol and Angry Birds.
