It’s fall in Dallas, and while the temperatures are still in the summer range, you can embrace fall with pumpkin spice lattes and fall-themed activities. The city of Dallas has quite a large number of activities that embrace the season, and with activities to appeal to people of all ages. Whether you live in Dallas or are visiting, here are some of the best that you will want to enjoy!
Visit the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch
Located not far from the city in Flower Mound, the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch is the ideal place to pick out your pumpkin this year. Whether you go into the field to get one or pick it up from the market, you will find pumpkins in all shapes and sizes. After picking out your fall decor, grab the kids and head to the bounce houses, hayride, playground or hay bale mazes for a great afternoon of family fun.
Autumn at the Arboretum
Every fall from September through mid-November, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden adds a stunning fall display with fall flowers, a pumpkin village and more. This year the theme is “The Wonderful World of Oz,” so you will be able to walk the yellow brick road with Dorothy and the gang as you walk through life-size and Munckin size houses made out of colorful pumpkins and gourds.
Dallas Farmers Market
The fall season means the Dallas Farmers Market is still in full swing. Whether you are picking up some mums, pumpkins or fresh fall produce, you will want to do it here. The Farmer’s Market is quite large, so you can also shop for arts and crafts from local artisans and even freshly cooked food. Make a day out of it and enjoy lunch at the market!
Plan Your Fall Garden
The Dallas location of Calloway’s Nursery is hosting Fall Bulbs for Spring Color, an on-site event that encourages gardeners to choose the right fall bulbs to add brilliant spring color to their gardens. Come meet the Nursery’s experts, then choose the bulbs of your choice and get them planted while it’s still the right season.
Whether you’re planning for pumpkin-based fun, are looking to enjoy a bit of planting in your garden before winter, or simply want to enjoy the slightly cooler temps with a walk around a garden, you will find plenty of fall activities in Dallas.
