Whether you’re in for a staycation or vacation, Dallas has plenty to do for the whole family. Check out my family’s JadeWaters Hilton Anatole Dallas summer adventure weekend.
The Hilton Anatole graciously hosted my family this past weekend, and you’ll see why I called it our “summer adventure” weekend. JadeWaters offers something for everyone, especially the kiddos. There wasn’t a time that went by that there was not something fun for the kids to do.
JadeWaters Hilton Anatole Dallas Summer Adventure
Fridays and Saturdays are the best times to go to JadeWaters because of all the activities that are going on in and out of the pool. Sundays offer activities too but end around 5 pm. Of course, plans and schedules do change, so always check before you make reservations. For us, we spent Friday-Sunday there and it was non-stop fun at JadeWaters.
EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
There are many events & activities to choose from, but I’m only highlighting the ones my son participated in…and it’s a lot. This kid was so busy and having so much fun, he didn’t have time to say, “I’m bored”. Some activities charge an extra fee, but there’s plenty of activities that are free.
Kids Pool Party
Fun water activities start at 1 pm in the pool – from Simon Says to water basketball, to hula-hoop and more fun games. More games during the day too.
Food at Poolside or Dine in the Outdoors
The food was outstanding as were the snow cones, adult drinks, and the ice cream! Water is available at all times. JadeWater employees pass around waters all day long. Such a refreshing treat.
Nice sing-along music played all day, but at 1 pm it gets a little louder and a little crazy. It’s a good crazy!
All kinds of fun games on the lawn at Anatole Park from sun up to sun down.
Movies Under the Stars
Movies change nightly. We saw Mowana the first night and Secret Life of Pets the second night. Now, this is the way to watch a movie.
This is where all the fun is happening. Events Info, FUNPASS, and snacks. You’ll want to check out the FUNPASS to see if it’s something you want to spend a little extra money on. Brody spent most of his time here. AND…those S’mores ice cream cones were the best!
Kids Cooking Experience
Brody didn’t experience this, well kind of. As you can see from the photo, he enjoyed every bite of his chocolate cake pop that he received from a friend after she baked them.
Of course, when the kids weren’t involved in activities they were playing in the pool and the lazy river. The lazy river folks is where it’s at! My favorite spot for sure.
Are you and your family up for an adventure at JadeWater Hilton Anatole Dallas? I highly suggest checking out JadeWaters at the Anatole for your next staycation or vacation. P. S. No fidget spinner needed!!
