This Easy Wildflower Hike In Texas Will Transport You Into A Sea Of Color
For 67 years, Ennis has been the bluebonnet hub of Texas. Starting around April 1, our state flower lines the highways and extends out into grassy fields as far as the eye can see. It’s become such a popular tourist attraction that the town has capitalized on it and created a Bluebonnet Festival complete with tour guides, photography tips, and even an app with maps of all the trails. This is truly a can’t-miss, unforgettable experience for the whole family.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
