If you’re looking for a group of people who love exploring and socializing, consider joining North Texas Adventures. Throughout the year, indoor and outdoor events – hiking, camping, canoeing, sailing, community projects, dinners, pool parties, wine tastings, live theater and more – will fill your calendar with plenty of fun. While some events are for adults, many are designed for families and kids. In the past few months, the club has gone golfing, attended a ballet performance and enjoyed a movie on Margarita Monday. The group will be heading to Grapevine’s Texas Paddlesports Show on May 12, 2012. View photos and the calendar of public and members-only events at www.northtexasadventures.net.
