Resorts in Dallas: 5 Must-Know Kid Friendly Travel Tips

Resorts in Dallas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortWhether it’s a staycation or a vacation, heading to any of the best resorts in Dallas with the kiddos in tow doesn’t have to be met with a groan from the parents. The “family vacation,” for better or worse, sticks in a kids memory all the way through to adulthood. Remember your family vacations as a kid? Here’s how to make sure your kids remember the family vacation for the better.

Take it slow: Plan a little extra time for everything than you normally would if you were traveling solo or as a couple. Breezing by a national monument in the car while taking photos out the window may be okay for you, but the kids will actually want to see it up close. Or at least stretch their legs. Recognize that hiking and walking with kids will be slower, and take advantage of this opportunity to stop and smell the roses.

Keep their needs in mind: If the kids still need naps, plan around the naps. Honestly, what’s worse: missing one site on the route or having a cranky kid that makes seeing said site a miserable experience? Same goes for eating.

Pick a kid friendly hotel: And stay more than one night. There is nothing more exhausting than packing and repacking every single day on a vacation, nevermind all of that will only slow you down in the long run. A kid friendly hotel will help keep the kids from getting bored. You don’t necessarily need to find a hotel with a full fledged water park, just make sure there is at least a pool and/or game room.

Find something with a kitchenette: Whether it’s an extended stay or B&B or apartment rental, remember how much faster and cheaper breakfast will be with your small children when you can throw together some cereal instead of going to a restaurant.

Plan a little “alone time”: Keep in mind people get tired of each other. Especially families. Many hotels and resorts in Dallas offer babysitting or have kid-friendly activities so everyone can take a little breather from each other.

Head to one of the best resorts in Dallas for the whole family. Mill Creek Ranch Resort has swimming, nature walks, kids activities in the summer, fully equipped kitchens and grills for cooking, and a whole host of activities in the area that are fun for kids and adults alike! Call 877-927-3439 for more information and availability!

Enjoy the warm spring days with water activities at Mill Creek’s vacation rentals Dallas TX

Vacation Rentals Dallas TXSpring is in the air, and with the North Texas spring comes nice warm days and cool nights. You know what that means: time to dust off those fishing poles and break out the swimsuits, because it’s officially time to jump back in the water now that winter is over!

Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s vacation rentals Dallas TX boast all kinds of on-site activities to splash around in. Have some fun with catch and release fishing on beautiful Walden Pond or one of the other 8 ponds on the resort. Fish from the shore, a dock, or one of our paddle boats for catfish, crappie and smallmouth bass. Not fishing? No problem, the paddle boats are fun whether or not you’re out catfishing. We also have two resort-style pools for our guests, and a hot tub! Spring is one of the best times of year to put both of these to use – swim in the pool in the heat of the spring days, and warm up in the hot tub during the cooler evening hours. Enjoy with the whole family, or just snuggle up with your sweetie.

Before the days start to get way too hot, pack up the kids and head to the East Texas Gator & Wildlife Park, where you can relax by the duck pond and watch Alligators hang out in their natural environment. Try to count the number of gators, or get a look at some gators, from babies to one over 14 feet long. While the Gators are the park’s central focus, they also have a lot of wonderful animals and aquariums that the whole family can enjoy and learn about.

East Texas is also a great place to go fishing. Mill Creek Reservoir has a boat ramp for fishing, and the nearby Lake Fork is renowned for its bass fishing. Also nearby, Lake Tawakoni is great for catfish and bass fishing. If you bring in a haul, don’t forget you can cook up your catches in our fully equipped vacation rentals Dallas TX, either with the in-cabin full kitchen or out on the grill! In addition to fishing, you can also enjoy boating and swimming at both area lakes.

RV Park In Dallas, TX: 5 Tips For Keeping Your RV Secure And Your Belongings Safe

RV Park Travel Tips | Mill Creek Ranch ResortRVersare generally a carefree bunch.  When they get on the road, they don’t have to worry about hotel reservations or finding restaurants because they’re hauling everything they need for a relaxing vacation or weekend getaway.  Most RVers just climb in and head to an RV park in Dallas, TX for sun and fun; but many don’t consider the downside of owning and traveling in an RV and that is that RVs are usually not as secure as regular, non-moving homes.


RV manufacturers often put standardized locks on RVs, which means one key fits all.  This, and the fact that most RVs are rich with access points like doors, windows and skylights, means that they can be a  prime target for thieves.  So, what can you do to keep your RV secure and keep your belongings safe?  Try these tips:


  1.  Pick a great RV park.  If you’re headed to an RV park in Dallas, TX or anywhere else, do your homework.  Learn about the park and the kind of area it’s located in.  Read reviews written by people who’ve been there.  If the park has a website, check it out to see how it’s laid out and if there is any kind of security.  Don’t hesitate to call the park if you have questions.


  1.  Choose pitstops carefully.  When you’re en route to your vacation destination, be careful where you park when you make stops.  Even if you’ll just be away from your RV for a quick dinner, you must make sure you park in a well-lit area, if possible within eyesight of the restaurant or store you’re in.  If you want to stop but don’t see a safe place to leave your rig, keep driving.


  1.  Install new deadbolt locks.  Because RV locks are sometimes standard – they can even be purchased online – it’s important that you or a locksmith installs non-standard deadbolts on all of your RV’s doors.  While you’re at it, make sure that all your window locks and latches are in good working order.  You may also want to consider installing motion-sensing lights on the outside of your RV so that you can be alerted to anyone approaching if you’re inside.


  1.  Always lock your doors.  This is an obvious tip to keep thieves out but it’s also a good idea if you want to keep curious children, who might get hurt, out of your RV if you’re not around.   You should also keep lawn chairs, coolers, grills and other equipment secured if you’re not going to be nearby.  Most RV parks and the people who visit them consider themselves one big community so it’s easy to forget that there are people who aren’t part of the RV community who may not hesitate to take what you leave out.


  1.  Don’t leave personal information in the open.  Find a place to secure any personal documents that may have social security numbers or any other information inside your RV.  You may have room for a locking file cabinet or you may have a secret hiding place – either one will do if you must carry those kinds of documents with you.  You don’t want to leave yourself vulnerable to identity theft.


There’s no better RV park in Dallas, TX for you to choose for your vacation than Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we want you to feel safe, secure and have lots of fun, too.  Call us at Mill Creek Ranch Resort at (877) 927-3439 to reserve an RV site today.

Vacation Rentals In Dallas, TX: Get A Taste Of Tiny House Living

Vacation Rentals In Dallas TX | Mill Creek Ranch ResortIf your leisure plans this year include vacation rentals in Dallas, TX, think small for a change.  Why?  Because the tiny house trend is hot!  We’ve all seen the news stories and the photo galleries of people living in houses smaller than many recreational vehicles.  With sizes averaging between 100 and 500 square feet, tiny houses are enabling people to live a more minimalist lifestyle that not only limits the amount of unimportant stuff they have to buy and store but lowers their energy and maintenance bills and their carbon footprint.


If you’ve been thinking about trying out tiny house living but you aren’t ready to let go of your four-bedroom, suburban monster, you can rent one for the weekend.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, our vacation rentals in Dallas, TX are cozy and have that tiny house square footage that will give you a real feel for compact living.  Like every tiny house, our cottages have everything you need to live but in a smaller size.  The living rooms are just large enough for comfortable seating when you’re watching TV or playing a board game or just relaxing.  Kitchens have full-sized refrigerators and stoves but floor and counter space is limited to make room for a dining area that accommodates a table for two or four.


Vacation Rentals In Dallas TX | Mill Creek Ranch ResortMost of our vacation rentals in Dallas, TX have one bedroom with enough room for a queen-sized bed and many have a loft area for sleeping guests on twin-sized mattresses.  The bathrooms have everything a bathroom should have – sink, toilet and shower – but in a more compact area.  There is simply no wasted space in a tiny house and the more you live in the space you have, the more you realize that you’re not sacrificing anything by downsizing.  In fact, what you’re gaining by living in a tiny home is more outdoor time.


Like many tiny homes, our cottages come with lots of outdoor space with decks and porches that let you enjoy the beauty of our ponds, green spaces and East Texas woodlands.  There’s no reason to linger indoors when there’s a sunny playground right outside.  And at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we have amenities and activities that will let you enjoy everything Mother Nature has to offer – from fishing to swimming to biking to nature hikes.  If you’re ready to experience life in a tiny home in a beautiful wooded setting, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at (877) 927-3439 to ask about reserving one of our cottages.  You can also go online at www.millcreekranchresort.com to make a reservation and to see a gallery of photos that will show you exactly what’s waiting for you in our vacation rentals in Dallas, TX.

Resorts In Dallas: 4 Tips For The Perfect Cottage Honeymoon

resorts in dallas tx | Mill Creek Ranch ResortHave you planned your dream wedding and now you’re thinking about the perfect honeymoon to follow it?  Have you thought about staying in Texas?  There are many resorts in Dallas and the surrounding area that can give you a honeymoon experience you won’t forget without the anxiety and the credit card bills that go along with cruising to the islands or jetting to Europe.

With resorts in Dallas, you can honeymoon in a private cottage that will be so much more romantic than a cabin on a rolling ship or hotel room in a noisy city.  In fact, what could be more romantic  and stress-free than being alone together in a rustic setting, watching the sun setting on your back porch? But even with a low-stress cottage honeymoon, there are still a few things you can do to make it perfect:

  1.  Plan for privacy.  Your wedding is a time to celebrate with family and friends.  Your honeymoon is your time alone together as a married couple, which means you may not want to leave your cottage for any reason.   Make sure you bring music, movies, cards or anything else you can enjoy together.  With the convenience of Mill Creek’s fully equipped kitchens, make sure you bring fun recipes and enough groceries to last your whole stay. And don’t forget a bottle of champagne to sip while you’re watching those sunsets.
  1.  Pack for outdoor living.  If you’re planning on taking advantage of the amenities that many resorts in Dallas offer while you’re honeymooning, make sure to bring the right clothes and equipment.  You may want to hike or fish or swim so bring jeans, walking shoes and swimwear.  Bring jackets for cooler weather and shorts and flipflops for warmer weather.
  1.  Don’t bring anything work-related.  As tempting as it is to stay connected to work, it’s not a great idea for either one of you.  Spending time on the phone with your boss or clients can make for a very unhappy spouse.  Your cottage honeymoon is your calm in the eye of the storm that is your regular lives.  Leave laptops and briefcases where they belong – at work or at home.
  1.  Be flexible.   Your intention may have been to spend a week gazing into each other’s eyes; but that’s never as romantic as it sounds.  Even though you may have planned to stay in, don’t feel bad about wanting to go out and find a restaurant or live music to enjoy.  Just because you’re newly-married doesn’t mean you’ve just met.  Most couples have known each other for a significant amount of time before they get married.  If you do have a long history, forcing a contrived notion of what newlyweds should be doing into your unique honeymoon agenda just won’t be fun.  Keep part of your itinerary open to a little adventure.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we are one of the finest resorts in Dallas and our rental cottages give you the privacy you want in a beautiful, rustic setting while still offering you all the amenities you expect from a deluxe resort.  When you’re ready to plan your honeymoon, call us at (877) 927-3439 or visit www.millcreekranchresort.com to book your cottage online.

Wedding Venues In Dallas, TX: Tips For Choosing The Right Flowers For Your Big Day

wedding venues in dallas tx | Mill Creek Ranch ResortWhen you’re planning your wedding, you have a lot to think about.  From choosing from different wedding venues in Dallas, TX to formulating the guest list to deciding on the menu, the number of components that go into making your big day perfect can be overwhelming.  But one of the decisions you have to make – choosing the flowers for your ceremony – doesn’t have to be fraught with anxiety.  Besides finding the perfect gown, choosing flowers for your bouquet, centerpieces and arbor can be the most enjoyable part of wedding planning.  With flowers, you get to add color and natural beauty to complement your dress, your style, the season and the setting.

Your first step should be to consult with a florist who specializes in, or has extensive experience in, selecting flowers and designing floral arrangements for weddings, especially wedding venues in Dallas, TX.  When you meet with her, take your wedding dress with you.  The color and style of your dress, coupled with your own likes and dislikes, will help her to decide which options to show you.  She’ll likely start with your bouquet, which is the central floral element of any wedding and one that you’ll be carrying around for most of the day.  The color of your dress will help to determine the color of your bouquet.  You may love orange flowers but if you have a pale, pink dress, the pairing can be jarring.  Luckily, since most wedding dresses are white-, cream- or ivory-colored, there are a wide range of flower colors to choose from.

Once you know the colors you should choose from, you can decide which type of flower you prefer based on which flowers will be in season when you need them.  Roses are always popular and come in a variety of colors.  Tulips, calla lilies, peonies, ranunculus and sweet peas are also high on the list of flowers chosen for bouquets.  The type of flower you prefer will determine the size and shape of the bouquet, which is important because you don’t want to hide any of the design elements of your dress with an overwhelming or oversized bouquet of flowers.

If you want your bouquet to be a personal statement, you can add flowers that have a particular meaning; for instance, you may want to carry some of the same flowers your mother or grandmother carried in their bouquets.  Another way to personalize it is to add elements of the traditional ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ theme.  You can add a borrowed, lace handkerchief or a piece of jewelry, like a brooch that’s a family heirloom, to the stem wrap.  Once you’ve chosen the perfect bouquet, your florist can create centerpieces and an arbor drape that mirror the flowers in the bouquet.  She can even create an arrangement to adorn the back of your “honeymoon getaway” car.

Before you choose flowers, a gown or anything else for your big day, you should think about wedding venues in Dallas, TX.  It’s important to choose and reserve your venue early to get the month and day you want.  The best wedding venue in the Dallas area is Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we have the facilities, banquet services and staff to make your wedding day perfect.  Call our social events manager at (877) 927-3439 to check for venue availability and visit us online at www.millcreekranchresort.com to see photos of our resort and to learn more.

RV Park In Dallas, TX: Get Your RV Organized Before You Hit The Road

rv park dallas tx | Mill Creek Ranch ResortIf you’re packing up your RV and heading out on the road this year and your destination is an RV park in Dallas, TX or anywhere else in the country, you’re probably going through your usual struggle with organizing your RV space.  No matter how much you pare down, you probably still don’t have enough room for all of the critical items you need for an extended trip.  Making lists of things you need in order of importance is a great way to start the organizing process.  After that, here are some tips for making maximum use of the space you have inside your RV:


  •  Nest as many things as possible. Buying cookware that has pieces that can be nested inside each other will save space in the kitchen. For serving and storage, consider using collapsible plasticware that takes up two-thirds less space than regular plasticware.  Never let a container be stored empty – it can always hold something.
  •  Take advantage of vertical storage.  Hanging shoe organizers work well for storing everything from towels to kitchen utensils  They can be hung from rods inside narrow cabinets or attached to walls and inside cabinet doors to hold toiletries, magazines, tools and other miscellaneous supplies.
  •  Take advantage of horizontal storage.  Install low-profile slide-out drawers under tables and desks to store writing supplies, phone chargers and small hand tools.  For pre-existing drawers under couches and beds, look for dividers that can keep clothing neatly stacked and separated.
  •  Store dry goods in plastic bins.  You’ll save more space when you move dry goods like cereal, sugar, etc. from their original packaging into stacking, plastic bins that will fit more easily into cabinets.
  •  Use repositionable hooks wherever possible.  Repositionable hooks are a boon to RVers because they don’t require screws that can deface walls and cabinets and they’re sturdy.  Use hooks to hang kitchen utensils next to the stove, to hang storage pods inside cabinet doors and to hang hats, flashlights, umbrellas and leashes near the door.  With the wide variety of repositionable hooks available, there’s almost no limit to their usefulness inside your RV
  •  Use Velcro liberally.  It sometimes seems like Velcro was invented to make RV life easier.  You can use flat Velcro strips to keep your remote controls in place and in one central location.  They can also be used to stick first aid kits, fire extinguishers and other emergency items to walls.  Velcro straps come in handy when you need to keep hoses and electrical cords from uncoiling.  Once they’re secured, you can even attach them to the doors of your storage compartments so they’ll be easily accessible once you reach the RV park in Dallas, TX.

There are almost as many storage and organization ideas for RVs as there are RVers so, once you get to your destination, ask your fellow travelers for their tips and tricks.  If your destination of choice is an RV park in Dallas, TX, consider Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  Mill Creek Ranch Resort combines the peaceful beauty of the East Texas Piney Woods with the kinds of amenities you’d expect from a 21st century RV park.  Call us today at (877) 927-3439 to find out more or you can visit us online at www.millcreekranchresort.com to make a reservation.

Wedding Venues In Dallas, TX: A Guide to Guest Seating

If you’re planning a wedding in the near future, consider Mill Creek Ranch Resort, one of the finest wedding venues in Dallas, TX.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we not only have one of the most beautiful settings for formal or informal weddings – over 200 acres of East Texas woodlands, a Grand Lodge and pavilion – we also have an experienced staff that will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams.  And because our staff members have worked so closely with so many couples, we know that there are many details that can easily overwhelm you when you’re planning your big day.  Among the most contentious is guest seating arrangements for your reception.

dallas tx weddings |Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Deciding who to invite to your wedding is hard enough; but deciding where to seat the people who make the list is even harder.  The first thing you should remember is that you won’t be able to make everyone happy so do the best you can.  The second thing to remember is to check with your parents and your fiance’s parents to find out about potential problems and who can’t be seated next to who under any circumstances.  The third thing you need to remember is to build in some flexibility into your seating arrangements.  Leave a couple of tables with open chairs in case you have surprise guests or people who forgot to RSVP.

Dallas Weddings | MIll Creek Ranch Resort

Before you even sit down to chart out the seating arrangements, decide if you want to let your guests request specific tables or if you want to take complete control.  Either way, you and your spouse will be seated at the head table.  You can sit alone or with members of your wedding party.  Next to the head table is the table of honor, which should be reserved for parents and possibly grandparents of the bride and groom and the wedding officiant.  If any of the parents are divorced, they should be seated at separate tables.  As for the rest of the tables, married couples should always be seated together while single guests will likely prefer sitting at tables with other singles.  Another mistake to avoid is creating a table full of strangers.  Always try to seat strangers with people familiar with each other to make conversation easier.  weddings dallas tx | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

And last, but not least, clearly mark the tables with numbers and then give each guest a table card to let them know at which table they’ll be seated.  When you choose Mill Creek Ranch Resort, one of the best wedding venues in Dallas, TX for rustic, Texas weddings, you can be creative with your table cards and table settings. You can place table cards in pine cones or blocks of wood or attach them to twigs.  Your place settings can continue your rustic theme with flowers in mason jars, leaves, greenery and candles for soft lighting.  Pair your rustic decor with elegant dinnerware, cutlery and crystal for a great balance of styles.

Make sure to visit us at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, one of the best wedding venues in Dallas, TX, when you’re planning your wedding.  You’ll fall in love with the setting and with our guest cottages that combine rustic charm with modern amenities.  When your wedding party and guests stay onsite at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, they’ll have access to everything the resort has to offer.  Call our social events manager at (877) 927-3439 to ask about having your wedding at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  And visit us online at www.millcreekranchresort.com.
