If you don’t already know, Matt and I split our time between New England and Dallas, Texas. It’s an odd match for sure, but Matt’s currently here for two years and since my work is mobile I can spend half my time with Matt, and the other half in New England. To be honest though, during this time of year and especially in summer I prefer New England, but with that being said, Dallas does have a lot to offer come fall. So I figured I sit down and share some of my go-to activities when I’m in the big D (as they say).
Since this could be Matt and I’s last fall in Dallas, we are trying to check off as much as possible, on our long bucket list. Today I figured I’d share a glimpse into our Fall in Dallas, Bucket List. Below, I broke down all my favorite places to go, unique things to see, and food to try; while here in Dallas for Fall. I hope this inspires you guys to embrace autumn no matter where you are.
Fall in Dallas, Bucket List:
1) Texas State Fair // September 29th through October 22nd. Make sure to try a corn dog, they are delicious.
2) Witnessing the Red River Shootout at the Cotton Bowl // October 14th Don’t forget to wear your hook em’ colors!
3) Watch a dozen hot air balloons take flight at the Plano Balloon Festival
4) Visit the pumpkin patch at Autumn at the Arboretum, and take lots of pictures.
5) Go to a Dallas Cowboy Game
6) Attend the outdoor, Dallas Farmers Market
7) Eat one slice from all five fall pies located at Emporium Pies
8) Take a picture In One of Texas’ Many Country Fields
9) Watch a game at the most expensive high school football stadium in America, Allen TX.
10) Take a train ride on the Texas State Railroad to a pumpkin patch.
11) Visit the original Six Flags over Texas, for Fright Fest.
This time of year just slips by us so quickly, and while I’ve already loaded up on Bath and Body Works Candles to remind me of this season all year long, I figured making a Fall in Dallas, Bucket list would hold me accountable in putting down the laptop and head outside.
From the not so brisk 72 degree fall air, to the hushed talk of football round the clock; Dallas might not have a conventional fall. You won’t see any apple orchards and forget about seeing any leaves but Texans have their own way of celebrating this season via college football.
So if you find yourself outside of New England and a tad sad you don’t have leafs crunching as you walk and apple orchards in every town, take some time to experience the fall around you. Ever region embraces this time of year differently and it’s good to get outside of your comfort zone. Trust me.
