Coppell is a neighboring city of Dallas. Originally a small farming village, it evolved into a suburban upper-middle class area between 1980s and 1990s due to the opening of the Dallas/Fort Worth airport. Despite the economic shift, it retains its quaint small town vibe, and offers many ways to pass your time during a visit here.
1. Explore the outdoors while in the city at Coppell Nature Park

2. Go boating with the Trinity River Kayak Company
If you’re more into water sports, you can try out kayaking with the Trinity River Kayak Company, where visitors are given lessons before heading out. Guests have the option to choose between solo kayaks and tandem ones. It takes about 2 to 3 hours in order to cover the area, which runs for about 5 miles (8 km). The water is calm, so the experience can be quite relaxing for visitors, as they can simply allow themselves to be brought downstream by the current as they enjoy the scenery.
Make sure to bring your own snacks to the area. It would also be a good idea to use sun protection – sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat – in case you visit there while the sun’s still high. Make sure to wear clothes that can get wet, since you will be in the water.
