Texas Travel :: Autumn in the Arboretum

This Autumn marks our third year back in Texas and we have barely begun to explore this amazing state with our boys. Earlier this week, we had the opportunity to visit the Dallas Arboretum. Filled to the brim with a variety of pumpkins and gourds, the arboretum was blooming with families, grins and giggles.

  Displaying a multitude of garden sensations, the arboretum included several children's exhibits featuring world explorers, Texas life and the famous Pumpkin Village composed of over 50,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash. 

In addition, the arboretum offered up a quiet place to sit, a lovely stroll and inspiration for future garden plans.

While we did not get a chance to visit the newly opened Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, we will be returning later this Fall. The Adventure Garden is an 8 acre outdoor "museum without walls" featuring 17 educational galleries. Please note, this special garden requires advanced reservations.
