One of the Most Scenic Drives In America Is Right Here In Texas

There are other places to see our state flower, but to visit the Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail, you have to travel to this little city south of Dallas. Ennis, which is itself called the Official Bluebonnet City of Texas, earned this distinction in 1997.

These wildflowers shine brightest when they are in full bloom, from March to May. The best time to go is during the month of April, when the town celebrates its claim to fame. Trails offer over 40 miles of Texas countryside, covered in a blue blanket. According to the Ennis Garden Club, the bluebonnets are most impressive in the third week of April.

Join the tens of thousands of visitors who flock to the trails every year to see the fields. When you’re in town, check the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau for updates on where to find the best flowers at that time, according to the Ennis Garden Club. Before your trip, check the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau website for updates.
