If you're in the area durning blue bonnet season you definitely want to take the blue bonnet drive. It a beautiful country drive. Our family has gone every year since we moved into the area. It will be one of the things we will miss when we move. Make sure to stop and take some photos.

Galaxy Drive-in Movie Theatre

Reviewed By asmith832

I've always loved drive inns when I was a child. My husband and I were thrilled when we found the Galaxy Drive Inn. They have reasonable prices and always have the best movies as soon as they come out. Great Place to take children of all ages. Or get a sitter for a date night.

Texas Motorplex

Reviewed By DanNowlan - Arlington, TX

Came here with my buddy last week. My first time in probably 15 years. His first time ever. We thought we got there relatively early on a Saturday with it being about noon, but we still had to park quite a ways away. After a couple adult beverages in the "parking lot" (read: grassy field), we headed in.

My employer sponsored a car, so we had pit passes and thought that'd be cool. It was interesting watching them rebuild the motor, but of course it's not exactly an interactive process—they have job to do and it's not talk to spectators. As such, we spent most of our time in our seats.

Tickets are in the form of numbered seats. Seats are basically just hard, aluminum bleachers. If you plan on staying for long, I suggest you take a seat cushion. There's no shade whatsoever either, so taking something to block the sun—a hat, a folding fan, something—is an absolute MUST!

While the selection of food wasn't great and the announcer was very egocentric and quite annoying, all in all we both had fun and would go back again.

Sugar Ridge Winery

Reviewed By Bhoff4273 - Lewisville, Texas

Wine tasting some interesting flavors. Purchased three bottles to take home. Didn't plan to buy any. Friendly but small place. Nice day but clouds were forming for coming storm, which didn't come. Outdoor venue with enough seating but could be crowded. Blue bonnets were not as nice as other years but still worth the trip.
