Bask in all things nature at the beloved Texas Discovery Gardens. Located at Fair Park, the gardens are open to the public Wednesday through Sunday. Masks are required to enter. The location is probably best known for its butterfly house, which has been compared to a tropical rainforest and is home to species from all over the world. There’s also a 7.5-acre garden featuring native and adapted plants. If you and your children are not quite ready to visit the gardens in person, a digital experience on the gardens’ website offers videos of some of the butterflies and critters you’d see in person, plus a virtual tour of the space.
Open Wednesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 60 and up, $5 for children 3-11, free for children 2 and under. 3601 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Dallas.
