There's no better time than August to visit one of the most breathtaking gardens in the world -- The Dallas Arboretum.
During the month of August the Dallas Arboretum is selling entrance tickets for only $1. No only is general admission $1, but there are plenty of refreshments for the same price.
The arboretum also has plenty of spots to stay cool during Texas' hot summer days -- garden officials suggest a stroll in the Palmer Fern Dell or taking in the shade of Pecan Grove.
In case you missed it, Architectural Digest named the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden the second most-breathtaking garden in the world, ranking high among the gardens in Versailles and Rio de Janeiro.
You can't beat seeing a world landmark for $1 -- even during a Texas summer.
