This big-time professional rodeo is just 15 minutes east of downtown Dallas. The season runs from April through September, but don't worry about the sweltering heat: The 5,500-seat Resistol Arena is fully air-conditioned. If you require further pampering while watching the calf roping, steer wrastlin', and barrel racing, decorated luxury suites offer wet bars and waiters. This very family-friendly environment includes pony rides, a petting zoo, and finger-lickin' BBQ from local legend Sonny Bryan; kids under 55 pounds can even suit up in a helmet and vest just like the pros and ride a sheep (called mutton bustin'). But the marquee bull-riding event, where the one-ton animals usually win, is a dangerous sport for the real pros only.

Open early April through late September; most rodeo events Fridays and Saturdays 8 to 10 pm.
