“Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I went there on the 4th of July for fireworks. The place was really big, and restrooms were easy to find. I also went there every year for state fair of Texas. It was fun, and it is a must-go place if you happen to be in Texas during that time of the year.

“The REAL Cotton Bowl, and still dang proud of it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

You can almost hear Pat Summerall calling the color of a Cowboys game, with Tom Landry prowling the sidelines, when you see this classic American football venue. It is still used each year for the Texas-Oklahoma game during the state fair (try to avoid that fair weekend, unless going to the game, as pretty wild if with small kids) and some other events (Clapton guitar jams among them), and has been upgraded in recent years. Check the web for updated Cotton Bowl events when you plan your DFW visit.

“Run Down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I appreciate the tradition of the cotton bowl, but it's starting to get really run down. needs a facelift, but with no games sticking around, I'm not sure how they will afford it.

“Needs to be updated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I have heard that they are working on updating it, and it definitely needs it. Could still be a great place to watch football, but now there are so many other stadiums with more to offer guests. Fun and different when it is Fair time!
