BEST OF DALLAS “Healthy Kids” Awards :: Outdoor Activities

Dallas Moms Blog’s Best of Dallas Awards are sponsored by Solv. All opinions are 100% our own and results are not affected by this sponsorship. All “winners” were selected from over 200 votes by metroplex moms! 

Dallas is an incredible city that offers endless options to the families that live here. Interested in pediatricians? We’ve got thousands to choose from! Need a Mommy & Me class experience? There’s at least 5 different choices going on each day across the metroplex – just pick your “flavor.” 

But as all moms know, many of us choose to not spend hours and hours researching what we need to know, we simply take to the internet and ask on our Facebook Groups or reach out to friends in the area for recommendations — people who are like you, have had good (or bad) experiences, and can share their wisdom with you hopefully saving you all that time researching.

With the help of Solv, we have spent the last month collecting YOUR thoughts on your favorite local businesses, organizations, and practices. People you entrust your children to and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to other moms in the area. We compiled your nominations and put the voting in your hands. With OVER 215 votes in each category, we feel confident that we’ve found the BEST Dallas has to offer families in our Best of Dallas Guide for “Healthy Kids & Healthy Families”! 

Bookmark it! Pin it! Print it out!

Use it to help you save time and work into research and enjoy time instead with your family. Below you’ll find our reader’s top picks for local businesses in outdoor activities and playspaces.

Other BEST OF DALLAS Guides:

Dallas Moms Blog’s “Best of Dallas” Healthy Kids guide nomination and guide are presented by Solv. Solv, a mobile app, is helping DFW patients simplify everyday healthcare by helping you find and book a last minute doctor’s appointment with a reputable doctor at a time and place that is convenient for you. 

Using a smartphone’s GPS, Solv determines the user’s location, and its algorithm matches patients to the right clinics based on a chief complaint, insurance coverage, and appointment availability. Solv can also streamline insurance by allowing patients to use their phone’s camera to take a picture of their insurance card, and get a translation of their family insurance benefits.  To learn more about Solv, visit their website or social media channels for details!
