    Taking the family on a quick weekend trip want to go to the Dallas Aquarium and the Fort Worth Zoo, for a quick getaway. Would also like to know about any going on that are worth seeing. I lived in Dallas for 6 years but have not been back in 8 so any help would be good kids are 6&9

    Make sure you go to the Dallas World Aquaium on Griffin. www.dwazoo.com

    It's little expensive at $18 an adult and less for kids but to me it's worth it. Wife and I took our oldest son there about two weeks ago. It's busy on the weekends though.

    Fort Worth Zoo is great but I haven't been there in several years.

    Don't know about the Fort Worth Zoo but now that you mention it I don't recall seeing one or anything like it at the Dallas World Aquaium.

    The Fort Worth Zoo has the 30.06 sign inside the entrance to the park. The wording is correct, but technically it isn't the 1" block letters black on white background, it is zoo script. Also there seems to be some question about whether it can legally post a 30.06 sign since it is owned by a municipality. The aquarium is not posted officially.

    Had a great time at the zoo. It is in fact posted so I did not carry into the zoo. I expect they are getting by with the posting by calling the zoo an amusement park as they have a carrousel in the park for the kids to ride. But was a great zoo just too many people on the day we went. Never made it into Dallas but will be looking forward to another trip soon.

    I was there less than a year ago, and didn't see any 30.06 signs. I wasn't carrying that night (cause I was drinkin' :supergrin:), so I didn't scrutinize the way I would have normally.

    I've heard it's the main mall entrances that are posted. If you go in through a store - no sign. :whistling:
