Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
With 66 acres of nature at your fingertips just minutes from downtown Dallas, it is no surprise that nearly a million people visit this lush landmark every year. The property has 19 gardens to peruse at your own pace, and is quite popular with parents who are looking to entertain their children when the weather is nice. If you visit Dallas around the holidays, Autumn at the Arboretum and The 12 Days of Christmas displays are always a big hit. The Cool Thursdays Concert Series also draws a large crowd, because who doesn't love a BYOB concert looking out at White Rock Lake?
