It was a great day to stroll around the grounds of the Arboretum especially with the Chahuli Exhibit.

If you live in Dallas or are traveling to Dallas The Arboretum is exhibiting the David Chihuly Art Glass. In my opinion it is breathtaking. My next visit will be at night which I understand is spectacular!

This is a really wonderful arboretum, which is really the gardens around a huge home that was donated to the organization a couple of decades ago. Lots of pretty areas to see and our kids liked it too.

Really peaceful, lovely gardens perfect for meandering. Only complaint is that it is sort of expensive for a family.

Bring your camera, there is lots of pictures to be taken! We go every year to do family photos. The gardens are breath taking! You can bring a picnic or they have a restaurant that always has a wait! I also suggest a blanket to just lay around in the grass!
