Looking for a fun and affordable outdoor activity for all ages? Travel about an hour north of Dallas, to visit Texas-Tulips!
Updated on March 16, 2021
My first visit to Texas Tulips was in March 2017! Ever since then, when spring rolls around, we know our trip to pick tulips isn't too far off.
Texas-Tulips now has two locations, one about an hour north of Dallas, TX and the second just east of San Antonio, TX. The Dallas season starts towards the end of February and lasts through the end of March or early April.
The seasons really depend on the weather though! I tend to go in the beginning of the season because rain and storms can cause the field to close early.

- There's a $5 entrance fee
- Each stem is $2.50
- Parking is free

FAQ about Texas Tulips
What should I wear?
I’ve only been twice, a few years apart but I recommend wearing something comfortable and layer up!
Both times I visited the tulip field, it was cooler and windier than expected. I wore a dress the first year but decided to keep it casual this year with a pullover and leggings. You’ll see a mix of comfy clothes and trendy outfits.
Do I have to pick a minimum amount of tulips?
No way! The first time, I only picked one tulip. This year I picked five!
Can I bring a professional photographer?
Yep! Professional photographers will need to pay a $25 entrance fee but do not need to make appointments. Also, drones are not allowed.
Do you know of any discounts?
During the week, veterans and seniors receive a discount entrance fee of $7.50 per person that includes 3 tulips. Children under 12 months are free!
You-Pick Tulip Field
The coolest part about this whole operation is that YOU get to pick your tulips. Straight from the field! Grab one of the provided baskets and start wandering. Don't forget that each stem is $2.50 and picking is purchasing. When you are finished in the field, your tulips will be put in flower gel then wrapped in pretty paper.
It's so nice and relaxing out there because you truly feel like you've left North Texas. Before the season ends, I really encourage you to take a trip and "visit a little piece of Holland right here in Texas!"
