Why Fall is Just Better in Texas

As fall approaches, it’s time to start enjoying some of the best that Texas has to offer. Though we may be a little biased, we think that fall is just better in Texas. Whether you’re new to the area or you’ve been settled here for years, here is a list of fun fall activities that you can enjoy with your family in the Lewisville and Dallas areas.

Things to Do in Fall in Texas

Enjoy all the State Fair of Texas has to offer.

The State Fair of Texas in Dallas is one of the biggest events in North Texas, offering a fun for the whole family. Each day is filled with live music, daily shows, interactive activities, carnival rides, games, and other forms of entertainment. The fair also offers tasty fried foods, creative arts, livestock exhibitors, and Big Tex Urban Farms.

Fall is time for football.

Are you ready for some football? Fall is football season, and in Texas, we are serious about the game. You can catch the Dallas Cowboys play the Chicago Bears on Sunday, September 25 just after the first official day of fall. Also, you don’t want to miss the big college rivalry game when the Texas Longhorns take on the Oklahoma Sooners at the Cotton Bowl stadium on October 8.

Get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air.

While the heat may have kept you cooped up inside for most of the summer, once fall is here, you can finally enjoy some cooler outdoor temperatures and crisp Texas weather. Fall is the perfect time to take the family for a picnic, spend some quality time at one of the area’s parks, or hit one of Dallas’ top hiking spots to see the beauty of Texas in fall time.

See the spooky side of Lewisville.

Fall also means that it’s time for some Halloween fun, and there are plenty of outdoor Halloween activities that you can enjoy in Lewisville and beyond. Take a ghost tour or visit a local haunted house for some silly and spooky fun. Check the Lewisville calendar of events for more fun, family-friendly local events for Halloween coming up in fall.

Tis the season for pumpkins (and apple picking).

Fall is better in Texas because there is no shortage of fun, family-friendly fall activities to do at the pumpkin patch like seeing different animals at the petting zoo, going for a hay ride, or finding your way around a corn maze. Fall is also the best time for apple picking. Mid-September through Mid-October is the best time of the year for picking apples with the family at a nearby orchard.

Hit the road to see some of your favorite bands.

If you are willing to make the drive down to Austin, Austin City Limits is a great fall activity for music lovers in Texas. The 2016 music festival takes place September 30 – October 2 and October 7 – 9 with a range of music acts including Radiohead, Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lamar, and Willie Nelson.
