I love going to the State Fair of Texas and Thursdays offer a lot of great discounts. But there are 3 things that are must in my State Fair visit:
- A Fletcher's Corny Dog is a must. It's not a trip to the Fair without this deep-fried treat. (Vote in my poll: Do you prefer a corn dog or a corny dog?).
- Something New. I'm always adventurous and try something new. I usually share with my daughter, husband or friends. This year I tried the Brisket Eggroll and Fried Banana Pudding. Both were absolutely delicious!
- The Texas SkyWay. I love taking the gondala ride across the park. You can get a bird's eye view of everything. It can accommodate strollers and you can make a round-trip or just stop at the opposite end of the park. (On Tuesdays only, a one-way ride is only 5 coupons).
