  • We went during the fair. The staff was over the top rude. We got there early and they told us to get out of the gift shop because they were not "open". Maybe they shouldnt open the doors and turn the ...  more »

  • A hidden gem within the confines of state fair park. Nice trails and a wide array of plants which are also named for you. During this visit the monarchs were landing on all the flowers. I'm sure it's ...  more »

  • "I cannot even begin to describe the amazing service at Texas discovery Gardens with Carron of Sugar City Sweets! My dream wedding was created in my budget and it was incredible. We got over the top customer service, so much attention and detail with our wedding and I was so pleased with everything. Carson listened to my ideas, my goals and my dreams for the feel of the wedding and then she went above and beyond to make it happen. I wasn't given a cookie cutter package with preset flowers and cake, I was given an amazing customized experience that removed the need for a huge list of vendors and we couldn't have loved it more. This was truly a one stop shop type of experience. I would definitely recommend them for weddings and I know I will most likely work with them for more events in the future too! I think this is the best kept wedding venue in Dallas!
  • This place was really neat. They're open year round. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Ask about their year pass pack. The gift shop is cool. I came for a friend's party and the kids loved it. The butterfly garden is incredible! They had a lot of interesting critters too. They have many special events throughout the year.
  • Lots of pretty butterflies! Good areas for taking pictures. Got eaten up outside in the garden I suggest wearing some bug spray at least on your feet. There is a nice area to picnic or just let kids run.
  • Came here by accident, and I absolutely loved it. Very cool place, great for picnics and for family pictures. The butterfly room is great (kept humid to accommodate the critters that live there).
  • It was a nice place, needs a lizard exhibit. But my daughter really liked the butterfly garden and the snakes

Where to stay in Dallas

Though the downtown area offers more high-end accommodations, the heaviest concentration of hotels in Dallas is in the northern part of the city. Staying in this area while on holiday allows you to choose from a range of affordable and comfortable lodgings just a short drive from the city's major attractions. Depending on the purpose of your visit, you may find it more convenient to stay close to the airport or near the city's amusement parks. A budget-friendly alternative, the northern suburbs offer decent accommodations and plenty of shops and restaurants.
