I visited the Dallas Arboretum today and while it was not my first visit, it was my first time to visit in the fall. It was mostly sunny and a chilly 48 degrees and absolutely beautiful. The Arboretum is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and we arrived just before 10:00 am. While there were quite a few people there at that time, it was still quiet enough that many of the paths were very quiet and peaceful. By the time we left at around 12:30 pm it was starting to get much more crowded. Arboretum admission is $15.00 for adults, $12 for seniors, $10 for children 3-12 and 2 and under are free. Parking is $10.00. There are also yearly memberships available with many perks that go along with that including free parking, unlimited visits and members only events. The best part about visiting in the fall is the Tom Thumb pumpkin patch that has over 65,000 pumpkins, squash and gourds in its Pumpkin Village. I could talk all day about how beautiful the Dallas Arboretum is and how lovely it is to be able to walk in such lush gardens in the middle of the city, but as they say, pictures are worth a thousand words. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my iPhone camera!
