The One Town Near Dallas – Fort Worth Everyone Must Visit This Fall
Mother Nature didn’t forget about Texas when it comes to majestic displays of fall foliage. Our season may be later and shorter than in other parts of the country, but our splendor is every bit as breathtaking. You just have to know where to look! From Dallas, simply head northeast to Winnsboro…considered the most popular getaway to behold the finest autumn to be found anywhere in the Lone Star State. Here’s why you should experience Winnsboro and its annual Autumn Trails:
Sitting between Lake Fork and Cypress Springs Lake and nestled within the East Texas piney forest, Winnsboro is one of the top ten historic downtowns that draws visitors from across the state.
Winnsboro is located about two hours from Dallas, and the scenic drive along the way is more than worth it.
This Texas town is nestled amongst the piney forest, whose ample hardwoods provide a spectacular setting for majestic foliage and charming scenic drives.
Towering trees filled with shocks of colors line the roads.
The farmlands and rolling hills provide idyllic views of autumn.
The town celebrates the season with festivals and activities throughout October and November.
Autumn Trails is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing weekly activities to celebrate fall.
Organized activities have taken place since the 1950s here.
Locals enjoy tractor pulls...
An old-timey trail ride weekend...
Residents dress in period clothes to really get into the spirit of the Wild West.
There's chili cook-offs and craft shows...
An antique car show...
Where everyone can be in the parade, if they choose!
But what steals the show is the landscape.
The beauty is unmatched with its bold, bright colors of fall.
On or off the main roads, you'll be sure to see colors that delight.
Be sure to stop at the nearby lakes while there...
Sit back, forget your worries, and stay a while.
And catch an incredible sunset while there.
Choose an overnight stay with plentiful bed-and-breakfast, cabin rentals, or a motel, with most within walking distance of downtown.
The sunrises on the lake are equally as spectacular.
Return home through the scenic drive feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Making the drive to this small town the best day ever you've spent away from your normal overscheduled, stressful existence in Dallas - Fort Worth!
