Scenic Fall Drives in Fort Worth, Texas

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is alive with the beautiful colors of the fall!  Everywhere you look, you’ll see gorgeous reds, browns, oranges, and yellows.  If you love looking at these fall colors and want to take a relaxing scenic drive in the DFW area, here are some of the best routes to take.

The Palo Pinto Mountains are a short drive from the Metro area, but they are absolutely stunning in the fall.  The acres of trees provide plenty of opportunities for pictures and for hiking.  Mineral Well State Park, located in the mountains, is a great place to camp out and relax.  Another park, Possum Kingdom State Park, is also near the area.  If you’re the adventuring type, bring a canoe and take a ride down the Brazos River!  Take a drive on Farm Road 4 or Highway 16 to see the fall foliage on the go.

Another nearby area to see fall foliage is around Tyler, Texas.  Tyler Sate Park is a quite nice this time of year.  You can also drive through Tyler’s tree-lined streets and visit the Tyler Rose Garden, although there may not be many roses in bloom this time of year. 

Take a drive up to the Cedar Ridge Preserve to get both a great view of fall foliage and a nice view of the Metro area.  It’s only about 20 minutes from Dallas.  With more than 600 acres and 10 miles of hiking trails, you’ll find a lot to see.  The preserve is at 755 feet above sea level, so you can look out and see pretty far.  A native plant nursery and butterfly garden are also options.

Finally, you can enjoy the fall foliage without ever leaving the city if you visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.  While it’s not a drive, definitely take the time to walk through the 66 acres of trees, gardens, and flowerbeds during this time of the year.

Go Horned Frogs! TCU Memorabilia from TCUFlorist

Here at TCUFlorist, we have a wide variety of different flowers, gift baskets, and other great items.  They’re perfect for sending to just about everyone for any occasion.  However, we’re more than just another florist—we’re a TCU florist, and we have many different products for students and fans of Texas Christian University.  We’ve got all your Horned Frogs merchandise, items for your sorority sisters, and great gift baskets for students.

Our cute little TCU frogs are great little gifts for fans of our sports teams. We also have larger concrete horned frogs for your gardens.  They’re the perfect garden gnome companions!

Another great garden accessory is our TCU stepping stone.  It’s shaped like the state of Texas with “TCU” done in purple in the middle. 

We have purses, clutches, and small handbags in TCU purple and in a variety of different styles.

If you’re thinking about adding balloons to a flower arrangement, we have some great TCU-themed ones, including a football shape.

Need something for your sorority sister?  We offer sorority crosses with the greet letters of your choice and jeweled trim done in the colors you request.  We’ve also got a Sorority Foursome flower arrangement that features four roses of any color in a rectangular glass vase.  A ribbon with your sorority letters completes this neat gift.  Our sorority ceramic mug is another great gift choice.

Of course, we have several TCU-themed flower arrangements, too.  We have a sorority tumbler featuring a great topiary design of fresh flowers.  We also have a purple and white arrangement and a student arrangement that comes in a dark purple vase.  We have a number of other arrangements featuring purple flowers that are also great for TCU family members.

What if you have a son attending TCU?  He might not care for flowers.  How about junk food?  You know he would love some chips and candy!  Send him one of our junk food baskets.  It’s full of great snacks for those all-night study sessions.

These are just a few of our great TCU merchandise.  Stop by the store or look online to see all our great TCU products for the Fort Worth Texas area.

1,000 Facebook Fans!

At the beginning of the summer, I was challenged to bring our Facebook Fan base to 1000 fans. At that time, we had around 460. Once we were able to reach our goal, we would throw a party for all our fans. Well, I am thrilled to say WE DID IT!!! Our party was September 30th and we had great turn out. Customers were impressed by our updated showroom and the new gift items that we are now carrying, especially the purple Flamingos and TCU accessories. Garland Geeslin, our good friend and owner of Sassy Hot Dogs, parked right outside. He served up some great food and created quite a buzz. Along with the hot dogs and burgers, we had hors d'oeurves, wine, beer and pie! Each customer received a free gerbera daisy and a lucky few found a gift card tied to it. Our Grand Prizes were a $100 gift card and a FREE design lesson. Congratulations to all our winners! We had so much fun putting together a great party and reaching our goal. Thank you to all our loyal Facebook Fans. I am really looking forward to the next party!
Check out our before and after pictures of the showroom!
