The State Fair of Texas has arrived and we want to make sure to be your guide to ALL THINGS STATE FAIR! You can't go to the fair and not document your trip! We've rounded up 5 of our top picks on where to get your next Instagrammable picture! From the classics like Big Tex to murals you won't want to miss, you'll want to keep scrolling to see where your next shot will be!
If you didn't snap a photo in front of Big Tex did you even really go to the fair? Not trying to be dramatic, but consider this the ultimate right of passage for Texans. And one thing is for sure, they don't call him BIG Tex for nothing. The man, the myth, the legend, and THE face of Texas' most anticipated event of the year - Big Tex is basically the North Star of the fairgrounds.
The Midway Entrance at the State Fair of Texas is bright, vibrant, and totally gram-worthy especially if you go at nighttime, AND it's only the beginning of so much to explore. Midway includes over 70 rides, the Texas Star Ferris wheel, the 500-ft. Top o’ Texas Tower, and the 1914 Dentzel Carousel! If you aren't too busy thrilling over the rides, we recommend eating your way through Midway or winning prizes by playing the games until you drop!
THE UMBRELLAS IN THE WINE GARDEN
The Wine Garden Umbrellas are nothing short of dreamy and gram-worthy. This hidden gem is sure something to treasure in the midst of all the fair festivities especially if you're searching for a relaxation spot. The Wine Garden offers a shady place to sit while sipping on a glass (or a bottle) of wine! Over the course of the State fair, the Wine Garden will showcase a selection of more than 20 wines that represent the different wine growing regions of Texas!
THE TEXAS FLAGS
What's more Texas than an entire walkway cloaked with state flags? That was rhetorical, for the record. Whether you're driving down the interstate or through a local neighborhood, you will surely never forget what state you're in. The Texas flag is inevitable, but who knew it could be so aesthetic? And when it comes to interrupting foot traffic for the perfect pic in this busy lane, we have ZERO SHAME.
TEXAS FOREVER MURAL
This mural is very much giving off Friday Night Lights vibes, and we are in our feels. Whether you're a Texas native or a recent transplant, one thing is certain... Texas is an experience like no other. One that will stick with you...let's say, FOREVER. If you want the ultimate sentimental photo opp that pays homage to the Lone Star State, this stop is a must!
