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!

Rustic design ideas when considering cabins for sale in Texas

cabins for sale in texas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortMill Creek Ranch Resort’s cabins for sale in Texas do come fully furnished and outfitted with modern appliances and rustic yet modern finishings, but the interiors and decorating aesthetic are entirely left up to you. The biggest trend in design for cottages is definitely to take it rustic all the way. To make your cottage a cozy rustic getaway, here are a few design and decor tips.

Consider your materials: When it comes to rustic design, think au naturale, and go for a lot of wood. There are tons of creative uses for wood, old or new, unpolished or reclaimed. This is also a wonderful way to go green and recycle. A little sandpaper and paint on an old door can make a charming coffee table top or headboard. When it comes to fabrics, consider natural fibers like linen, cotton or burlap.

Pick your palette: A rustic design usually centers around a palette of neutrals, especially those that reflect your surroundings, like browns, beiges, grays and sometimes green. If you are a color hound and find neutrals a yawn, definitely add some character with color. An otherwise neutral palette makes one or two accent colors really pop. Pick an accent wall to paint, or use bright colors in your linens (bed and/or table), throw pillows, etc. and you can even change them out seasonally.

Fine found finishings: A wonderful way to snazz up your rustic getaway, especially in the kitchen, is with those one-off unique bowls, vases and bottles that never seem to have the right place in your permanent residence (but often hold sentimental value). If you don’t have any items of this nature, never fear. Just come down during First Monday and find something unique at the nation’s biggest flea market, or take advantage of the numerous antique stores in Canton. If all else fails, invest in a few different sizes of mason jars to use as glassware, vases, cotton ball/toiletry holders, or anything else you can think of! Then send the kids on a flower and foliage hunt when you arrive to display inside or on the patio during your stay.

Remember that at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s cabins for sale in Texas, we take care of all the maintenance inside and out, both while you visit and when you’re away. You won’t even have dust-on-arrival. Contact us for more information on purchasing a vacation cottage or to schedule a tour.

3 planning tips for corporate retreats Texas at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

corporate retreats texas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortMaybe you are doing general team building, or maybe your company has a project that will require a little more time than one (way too long) meeting. Corporate retreats Texas are a great way to do both, and with the facilities at Mill Creek Ranch Resort we are here to assist you in taking care of business while taking a little bit of a load off. Here are a few tips to make your next corporate retreat productive, successful and fun.

Plan ahead. Keep in mind that you are taking people away from their homes and their families for a work-related event. You owe it to them to make sure the retreat is both productive and at least somewhat entertaining. Make sure you’ve done extensive research and planned ahead, creating an itinerary of any seminars, speeches, meetings, team building activities or brainstorms so the day or weekend runs smoothly.

Keep your eye on the goal. If your goal is to have ample time together to go through any number of phases of a big project, keep your focus on that. Plan activities and tasks that work towards completing your project as a whole group, in smaller groups, and then regroup as a whole to consider your progress. Do not plan an afternoon of trust falls if your main goal is to get ahead on a big project. On the flip side, do not plan on working on projects if your main goal is team building. Trust fall away!

Location, location, location! The location of corporate retreats Texas is especially important if you are planning an overnight stay. While the purpose of the retreat is to work and/or team build, you are not going to be doing that until your team falls into their beds at night. Book your retreat at a place that has a few things to do after dinner and/or work time.  Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s corporate retreat facilities include low-key activities such as nature walks, roasting marshmallows over a campfire or relaxing in the hot tub so your team will find the retreat fulfilling for both work and mental rejuvenation.

With a little planning and a little help from our corporate sales manager and our activities director, Mill Creek Ranch Resort is the perfect place to plan corporate retreats Texas. Between our state-of-the-art meeting rooms, full catering options, and tranquil luxury resort, let us help you plan a successful, productive and enjoyable corporate retreat.
