Last week, I went out of town to Dallas, I was gone and back before you knew it but not without exploring a few parts of Dallas. One of the great things I got a chance to do was visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. The Arboretum/Garden spans across 66 acres of land and a must see when visiting Dallas. We arrived in Dallas Thursday morning and that night we headed to the Arboretum to listen to music and enjoy the breeze. I was amazed at how many people came out on a Thursday night to listen to music and be amongst family and friends.  So here are my tips if you are visiting the Arboretum for the first time

  • Bring a chair-this will ensure that you are comfortable and able to enjoy the music but if you don’t have a chair don’t forget to take a blanket.
  • Wear comfortable shoes-yes, it’s a huge botanical garden, there is a lot of walking involved so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
  • Bring dinner-you have the option to purchase food from the food trucks but this is a great time to pack a picnic basket. I saw guests with all types of food ranging from cheese and crackers to different varieties of pasta. If you are on a date or hanging out with your girlfriends this is the perfect time to show your foodie side.
  • Bring wine-Yes,  you are able to bring wine to the arboretum, I suggest taking full advantage of this option.
  • There are different acts and exhibits on different days so be sure to check the schedule ahead of time but there are always events being held every Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Lastly, don’t forget to take a moment to take it all in. The beauty of the campground is something to be seen, take time to enjoy God’s beautiful work and just stay in the moment.
