What to do?

We will be visiting our 6 year old grandson in Plano. Parents are divorced, so we will be taking him out. What is there to do? He has been to the Aquarium with his dad, our son (who is in Afghanistan now), so what else is there? We are willing to drive, but don't want to spend our precious hours with him in the car. Help, please!

He's probably been to the World Aquarium in the West End in Dallas. There's a new aquarium in Grapevine called SeaLife that is next to LegoLand Discovery Center - that seems like a nice day for a 6 yr old boy.

The Heard is in McKinney with nature trails. We like the swampy trail.

The Museum of Nature and Science (In Dallas) has a lot that would appeal to a 6 yr old boy, plus they have a few great Imax movies.
