I may be biased but Dallas is a great place to visit any time of the year. In summer, you have sunshine almost every day and in the winter it doesn’t get as cold as other parts of the Lone Star state. However, autumn is when Dallas truly shows its colors and the world can see what a magnificent place it can be.
If you are planning a trip to Dallas, coming anytime from September through November is ideal. The summer heat and crowns slowly start to dwindle and there are tons of events to check out. With temperatures sitting comfortably in the 70s, it becomes bearable to walk around downtown and take in all the outdoor activities in the area. One of the fall’s main attractions is the State Fair, which runs for a month, starting in late September. As you would at any good fair, eating your way through fried-anything. You may end up catching a free concert, as there are world-renowned artists lined up to perform throughout the month.
If the fried foods of the state fair aren’t enough for any foodies out there, check out the variety of food tours that are offered around Dallas. From BBQ and tastes of Mexico, to chocolate and pizza, any palate can be satisfied! Once you have filled up from a food tour, consider taking a walk around the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Here you can find fall themed events all season long.
Dallas is full of rich culture and history. If you are looking to stay indoors and get an education, there are plenty of historic sites and museums around the city to enjoy. If traveling with children, you don’t want to miss out on the Perot Museum of Nature and Science! Hosting a wide variety of exhibits, kids will find plenty to keep them occupied with the many hand-on activities the museum provides.
When traveling to Dallas is it important to immerse yourself in as much of the local culture as possible. We have so many great opportunities for out of town guests to get the true Texas experience and love to show off the pride we have for our state and city!
