Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center

If you’re in the Dallas area and looking for something a little out of the ordinary on the weekend, check out the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens.  It’s about 90 minutes from Dallas and well worth the trip.  Your kids will love all the fish exhibits and the alligators, plus they can go fishing in a pond where they are almost guaranteed to catch fish. The price of admission is low – about $5 for adults and $3.50 for kids, I think, and there’s a lot to do.  Pack a picnic and drive over there one Saturday, it’s really fun.

When you go, make sure you get there in time for one of the Dive Tank Shows.  It’s informative and kind of neat.  Our kids got a big kick out of seeing the man in the fish tank.  Great times.

My name is Les Brown - not The Les Brown - just Les Brown. I'm married to the lovely and adorable SuperWife, Desi Brown. Together we're blessed with six IncrediKids - Abbie, Paul, Luke, Joshua, Bella, and Lilly, and we're hoping for more. All things considered, I live a fairly normal life - I work, lead my family, spend time with friends, and try to figure out how to do all of this in the way God intends. Not always easy. I started this blog out of a desire to create community with other Big Family Dads. There's definitely a bunch of us out there and though I don't have all the answers, I do understand a lot of the questions. I'm hoping to be an encouragement and to provide some great tools and resources for other dads.
