Gardens around Texas are always so beautiful, and they're even better when you get to see everything for free (if you're a member). The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is a beautiful place to take a stroll any time of the year with beautiful views and amazing waterfalls. The garden is the perfect place to spend the weekend when payday is too far away.
The entire botanic garden is made up of 18 different gardens including a rose garden and a rainforest conservatory. The nature spot is not only filled with the most beautiful plants you've ever seen but also has a variety of gazebos and walkways that have amazing views and are super instagrammable.
Most of the garden is free but you do have to pay a small $7 fee to get to feed the koi fish that live in the pond. The rainforest conservatory is a greenhouse that is filled with wildly beautiful plants and they also have butterflies that live there to make it even more magical.
The garden often has special events like a lantern festival that literally brings light to the garden during the evening. Another popular event is their Concerts In The Garden series where the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra stops by the garden to play music from all of your favorite movies with a massive fireworks show at the end.
The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They also offer tours of the garden as well as a Japanese ceremony.
