Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden | part 1
This week on my day off I took myself on a mini road trip to Dallas. I had been itching to get out of Austin for awhile, so I was really excited for this day. After searching popular Dallas destinations I decided to head out to the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden.
After 2.5 hours of driving and really bad gps directions I make it to the destination only to find out it costs $15 to park, and another $15 to enter the gardens. If I had checked the website before leaving town I probably would have chosen a different location, but I'm glad I decided to go despite the unexpected cost.
Throughout the day I spotted various photo shoots. There was a couple taking engagement photos, and another woman was having her wedding dress photographed. There was even a young lady taking photos for her quinceanera. It was a really peaceful sunny day full of flowers, and people of all ages enjoying the gardens.
After walking around for three hours I started getting hunger cramps, so I treated myself to a calzone at Old Chicago Pizza. On the drive home I made a pit stop in a friends city to say "Hey!" in person. Overall the day was really relaxing, and maybe one day I'll go again when they have a special event.
Have you ever been to a botanical garden? Would you be interested in going?
