Dallas – Fort Worth is filled with all kinds of fun activities and festivities for autumn that you won’t want to miss.
Last week we gave some fall themed tips for a happy and healthy home, and this week, it’s all about enjoying the new season. We believe you should work hard and play hard.
Here is a list of some of our favorite things to do and recommendations for the new season.
Enjoy the Outdoors
Spend time outdoors to take in the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors of fall. Walking around the park, going camping or sipping coffee on the front porch can all provide much needed relaxation. Make sure to take a moment to breathe and refresh before the hustle and bustle of the hectic winter ahead.
Visit Your Local Pumpkin Patch
DFW has some great pumpkin patches and most have multiple activities for kids. Tractor rides, petting zoos, fall food and more have all become a part of the pumpkin patch experience. Our favorites include The Big Orange Pumpkin Farm, Yesterland Farm, Blase Family Farm, & The Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch. Check your area for many others as well. Remember, purchasing your pumpkins at places like these helps support a local farmer.
Get Spooked at a Haunted House
For the lovers of all things horror, DFW is home to some spectacular haunted houses guaranteed to leave your heart racing for days. Some of the best rated attractions include Cutting Edge, Dan’s Haunted House & Dark Hour Haunted House. Be warned, some are not recommended for children and those with health conditions or prone to seizures.
Cheer on Your Favorite Team
In Texas, fall means football; with colder temperatures rolling in, it makes for the perfect time to cheer on your favorite team. Whether you want to support your local high school, visit your alma mater like TCU or SMU for homecoming, or catch the Cowboys on Sunday, now is the best time.
Checkout the Holiday Themed Events
DFW is home to several seasonal events in the fall that you have to try at least once. Start a new family tradition by taking part in Autumn at the Arboretum, Fright Fest at Six Flags, Halloween Nights at the Dallas Zoo, and/or the YMCA Turkey Trot.
Say Howdy to Big Tex
The State Fair of Texas is almost as American as apple pie, and whether you’re there for the food, the rides, the shows or to people watch, there is something for everyone. It’s only in town until October 22, so you won’t want to miss your chance to go. For discounts and information, click here.
