It’s about this time of the year that you start seeing a common theme on your friends’ social media pages: children and families in fields of bluebonnets! Yes, bluebonnets and spring in Texas go together just as much as spring and severe weather in Texas.
So where are the best places to go take these beautiful bluebonnet-filled pictures?
Our friends at GuideLive put together a very thorough (and incredibly helpful) Everything you need to know about Texas bluebonnets: Where to go and what to do article. We figured we’d share our favorite bluebonnet photo-taking locations from the article…and maybe even throw in a couple favs of our own (note the first location is right down the road from the radio station: our favorite for convenience!)! Feel free to click on the links to get information about each individual location.
George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum: 15 acres of land right off SMU Boulevard in the Downtown Dallas area. Oh, there are also other beautiful wildflowers to see there, too!
J.C. Penney Headquarters: it’s right off Legacy Drive in Plano.
Cedar Hill State Park: off the eastern shore of Joe Pool Lake. Not too far a drive!
Ennis: 40 miles of bluebonnet trails…need we say more?
Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park: we hear if you walk through the trails in the southeast corner of this Mansfield park, there’s a nice bluebonnet field there!
Samuell Farm North Park: this Sunnyvale location is at the corner of Jobson and Tripp.
Zion Cemetery Hill: this quaint hilled area of Little Elm is beautiful on its own…and the bluebonnets are the bonus!
Woodbridge: the front end this Wylie/Sachse subdivision has an area of field right off of 78 that’s perfect for bluebonnet pictures!
