Less Common Things to do Before or After SOLIDWORKS World 2019

It’s been a few years since SOLIDWORKS World was held in at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.  Last time we headed to town, there was a list of fun things to do before or after SOLIDWORKS World.  The list included amusement parks, attractions, areas to explore and some interesting facts.  These places are still great today.  Instead of republishing that list, you are invited to check our the original article, Other things to do in Dallas, TX; before or after SOLIDWORKS World 2016.

If you’ve explored enough of those places already and interested in something a bit off the beaten trail, here’s a new list of places you might’ve missed.  Of course, none of these places are endorsed.  This is just a list of something different and interesting to see and do in Dallas.  Some of these are eclectic, so be warned now to ye who enter here.
