The Cavanaugh Flight Museum is a large display of aviation history, with civilian and military airplanes from WWI through Vietnam. Many different types of historical planes are collected amongst four hangars.

Fun for all ages that don't mind potentially getting their eyebrows singed off. It's advisable to go early in the week, as there is usally an hour wait on the weekends and reservations are not accepted for Friday and Saturday nights.

  • Village on the Parkway

    5100 Belt Line Rd, Dallas, TX, 75254
    A large outdoor shopping mall. With fountains, simulated roudabouts and delicate styling this is reminiscent of an Italian village. Some notable shops here are Paciugo Gelato, Bed Bath & Beyond, Grand Spa International, and Harold's Closeout. Because this shopping center has many restaurants and bars it can get quite busy on weekend nights.

  • Addison Improv

    4980 Beltline Road
    Have dinner and drinks while laughing with world-class comedians. It's advised to arrive at least 30 minutes before the first show if you want a good seat. Arrive an hour before the first show if you're having dinner. There is a two item minimum purchase (food or drink) per person with each show, and the food's overpriced. 21 and up only.

  • Valley View Mall

    13331 Preston Rd
    Mon-Sat 10AM-9PM Sun 12AM-9PM. Valley View Mall 13331 Preston Rd. Dallas TX 75230 Phone 972-661-2939. Hours Mon-Sat 10AM-9AM Sun 12AM-9PM. Valley View offers the shopping experience to a cash strapped-buyer. If one can’t afford the more expensive Galleria or Northpark Malls, then the blue collar Valley View may be the answer. Moderate-budget stores like Sears, JCPenny, and Zales represent the style of the Mall. It also includes numerous salons, chain restaurants, and varied retail outlets. Valley View also holds an AMC movie theater, which, compared to Northpark’s AMC, will provide more moderately priced tickets.

    Blue Mesa Grill

    5100 Belt Line Rd
    M-Th 11AM - 10PM, F-Sa 11AM - 10:30PM, Su 9AM - 9PM. A rather nice American Southwest fusion restaurant. Like Tex-Mex with a little extra added. They also have a wide selection of tequila drinks. Try their Sunday brunch, however be sure to show up at 9AM to avoid the church crowd.

  • Probably Dallas' most famous barbeque restaurant, and a beloved local institution that has served everyone from celebrities to Presidents. Although there are now several locations, the original, and many say the best, is at 2202 Inwood, between Maple and Harry Hines. Get there early, though, because they close when they run out of food, which pretty much always happens at lunchtime. If in the mood for authentic local barbeque, you can't go wrong at Sonny Bryans'.

  • Fogo de Chão

    Fogo de Chão

    4300 Belt Line Rd.
    Authentic Brazilian-style churrascaria (barbeque). A franchise of the world-famous Sao Paulo restaurant. 40-item salad bar, and incredible cuts of meat. Expensive but worth it. A very similar restaurant called "Texas de Brazil" sits across the street a block down.

  • Magic Time Machine

    Magic Time Machine

    5003 Belt Line Rd
    This is a kids-oriented restaurant that screams atmosphere! The lobby is decorated in very loud bright colors. The dining room has the same bright colors with loud and gaudy wallpaper. Every obscure, brightly-colored accessory is hanging on the wall. And even the waiters are dressed in various fictional characters. People go there for the atmosphere, and with as much work as they put into their atmosphere they left the food a bit lacking. The food isn't bad, but it doesn't stand out as anything special. Overall it's a fun place to take the kids.

  • Red India Bistro

    4950 Belt Line Road
    This restaurant/bar/lounge is quite trendy and decorated very beautifully. While they have many classical Indian dishes, they give it their own touch by making the food a unique mixture of Indian and Asian fusion. This is a little more expensive than the restaurants in the surrounding area, but it is quite worth it.
