Rider Insider: Find things to do this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth

• Ride the D-Link or DART Rail Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line or Orange Line toAkard Station, then an approximately 1/2 mile walk on Field Street for The World’s Largest Dinosaurs at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. This exhibit includes specimens of sauropod vertebrae, a giant femur, skin impressions and many other fossil finds. It also offers plenty of opportunities for hands-on discovery, including a hand pump that demonstrates how much pressure would have been needed to circulate blood through a sauropod’s long neck to its head, and a simulated fossil dig at the end of the exhibit. Don’t miss your chance to make some big discoveries about the biggest land animals ever known at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, 2201 N. Field Street. Information: www.perotmuseum.org.

• Ride the DART Rail Red Line to Downtown Plano Station Friday to see Wanda Jackson. She is widely known and respected as “The Queen of Rockabilly” and is credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song. In 2009, Jackson was inducted into the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” and, in 2010, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Americana Music Awards.Unfinished Business, the new album from the legendary singer, is out now on Sugar Hill Records. The series concerts are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Courtyard Theater, 1509 H Ave. Tickets are $25 each. Information: www.planostages.com or 972-941-5613.
