The Best Fall Foliage Park In Texas Finally Gets Some Respect
Texas is not really know for it's fall foliage. In fall and winter, there is mostly dried up brown grass and trees. However, there is one scenic spot in the Lone Star State that is getting some love.
The town is Daingerfield, Texas that sits between Dallas and Arkansas. On a current list provided by Mixbook, an online photo book, Daingerfield State Park located in the town of Daingerfield (population 2,510) is the #1 in Texas and #63 in the nation as the best place to see excellent fall foliage. Unlike the closely named comedian Rodney Dangerfield, that is a show of some of major respect for the Texas town.
Mixbook described Daingerfield's beauty fall as...
