Addison Things to Do

  • Cavanaugh Flight Museum

    After touring the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, it would be worth your time to take a peek at their art gallery. Several of these paintings are signed by those who actually took part in the events portrayed on the canvas. You'll find oil paintings, watercolors and drawings of specific wartime action. There is no extra charge to peruse the...

    The Galleria Mall is a huge shopping centre full of some very ‘nice’ stores - all the big names are here. There is an ice rink on the lower ground floor and a five screen Cinema as well.

  • Addison Circle Park

    **Pictures will not upload. Will try later...I visit Dallas often and spend all of the holidays here. I lived here but before this sight I wasn't really inspired to visit more of what the city has to offer. So, the last time I went, I thought to look on Dallas Calendar of Events. It talked about a musical (Water Tower Theatre) in the Addison Circle...

  • Theatre in the Park

    **Pictures will not upload. Will try again later...Water Tower Theatre offers a busy season of shows running at all times of the year. During the summer they put on a musical in the park.

  • Visit the Air Show

    Air Shows have always drawn my husband and grandson; they marvel at the stunts and drool over the airplanes. I joined them on a recent trip to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum for this event and now see what all the excitement is about.Vintage planes were polished up and gleaming on the runway, filling the hangers and soaring over the cloud strewn sky....

Addison Restaurants

  • My Favorite Sandwich

    Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it. It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they...

  • Coffee for a Cause

    Dunn Bros is another small coffeehouse chain that I've seen in Houston and Dallas. They have good coffee and an even better atmosphere. It's very similar to Starbucks in that you'll see people studying, reading, and on their laptops when you enter. But the servers are as equally as friendly and the community awareness is inspiring. When I went to...

  • Great Breakfast

    My favorite place to go to breakfast is on Restaurant Row in Addison, North of Dallas. It's got a little nicer feel (you could show up in shorts and a nice shirt but I wouldn't wear your jersey and cut offs). The food has a range of breakfast items and some brunch items. It gets busy after church on Sundays and most weekend mornings from 8am-after...

  • Ethiopian Food

    We had been craving some Ethiopian food so our next stop was the Queen of Sheba.Hubby had the Spicy slow-cooked chunks of lamb ($5). I had the saute of cabbage, potatoes. and carrots($4). Both entrees were served on a bed of injere and 2 extra pieces on the side. We go to their restaurant usually on special occasions because it is about an hours...

  • Turkey experience

    Our first stop for food was at the Turkish market. There was a long line so I took that tomean it must be good. Hubby had a Kabab($5) and I had hummus($3). In another tent was their bakery so we had to stop there. I had a Baklava($3), hubby skipped the dessert and went on to the Turkish wine tasting. He enjoyed the glass of red wine and inquired...

  • BEST Enchiladas in Dallas!

    This is one of those restaurants where you really can't go wrong. It has anything you would ever want from drinks to food. From enchiladas to tacos, mariscos to fajitas, it's all fantastic. It's particularly hopping on Friday afternoons for happy hour and dinner. I have eaten at the ones in Addison and Lewisville and find them equal in service and...

  • Late Night Must - Awesome Anytime

    This place is best known for both their Breakfast and their "Deep Night". If you're tired of Denny's and IHOP after a night out in Addison (or their other 24 hour locations) then you have to give them a try. Everything in the place is handmade in their kitchen and I've never left disapointed by what I ordered. If you're looking for a nice weekend...

  • Good Burgers and Quiet Sports Bar

    The Addison Point is a favorite for many family members, even though they are very different people. Not matter your tastes these burgers are worth it. It's a small sports bar with a small crowd. It's been around since before I was born even though there are no flashy signs to get you here. Inside it's dark and it's one of the only places you can...

  • Great Steaks

    When Saltgrass first started expanding their franchises I hated steak. Yea, yea, I wasn't even a teenager though. So I started with the kids menu and have worked myself up to the best steak in the place.The restaurant is authentic country Texas. The decor ranges from televisions with the game on, deer heads, bear heads, license plates and other...

    Black finns is a cool place to go at the weekends and is always busy. There is always a good mix of people in there and it adds to the enjoyment. We tended to come here at the start of a night but there was the odd occassion we finished here and we found it to be just as much fun. There's a DJ who plays a mixture of stuff from real pop stuff to hip...

  • Kind of a british bar

    This is a bar which portrays itself as a british bar and it was as close as i cam to one in Addison. The bar itself is quite nice and serves a large variety of beers. It also serves some pretty good food at a very reasonable price with my favourite being the sausage chips and beans as it just tasted like home and having been away for 10 weeks it...

Although you don't need a massive truck like most of the locals seem to drive a vehicle of some sort is required. Be carefull though and drive safely as there are a lot of...

Addison Favorites

  • The Addison Airport

    As I peered through the fence many small planes sat on the tarmac, ready to be taken up to the wild blue yonder. I imagined my husband at the controls of these luxury modes of transportation. He's always wished he had taken flying lessons.Conceived in 1954 by a group of avid flying enthusiasts, Addison Airport is now owned by the Town of Addison...
