Stop and Smell the Roses with $1 Admission to The Dallas Arboretum!!

I normally write about Fort Worth area happenings when making “frugal fun” recommendations, but this time I must venture to Dallas to one of my favorite spots…the Dallas Arboretum, as they are running a promotion that is too good not to pass-along to my FW friends…

 

 The Dallas Arboretum is offering $1 admission to all guests through August ~ it is normally $9.50 for Adults /$6 for Children
…quite a savings! 

At the Arboretum you will find something for everyone.  Against the background of easy-to-navigate gardens and gorgeous foliage design for the adults (tons of photo ops!), there are lots of fun things for the kids, too. 

Kids will have fun exploring the tee-pee, cabins and play structures in Texas Town and the Pioneer Village — both excellent places for parents to kick back as the kids explore frontier life.  Everyone will enjoy the Storybook Playhouses that are sprinkled throughout as well —there is even a fun pirate’s ship, a Dr. Seuss inspired play area, and a Hansel and Gretel playhouse!  Click here for the list of playhouses you will find.

What:  Through the month of August, admission is $1 (kids under 3 are free!).  Parking is $5.  For more info about the Dallas Arboretum, click here.

Where:  8525 Garland Road, Dallas  (For a map and directions, click here).

When:  Open Daily, 9am-5pm

Helpful Tidbits:  Pack a Picnic and some cool drinks OR plan to eat at one of the Arboretum’s restaurants/snack cafés.

P.S.  Take a look at the pictures from this mom’s visit to the Arboretum with her kids (click here), to get a quick glimpse of what is in store for your visit.

Enjoy!  :)
