Texas Bucket List – U: Up on the Texas Star ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet


The Texas State Fair experience is not complete without a trip to up in the air on the Texas Star. This is a gigantic ferris wheel that allows you to see miles across the city of Dallas.

Last fall, we visited the state fair and had a blast. Going up on the Texas Star ferris wheel was definitely one of the highlights. You can see so much and it is such fun to be high up above the fair grounds. Everyone enjoys looking around and looking down, knowing you are safe in the seats.

If it is not on your Texas bucket list, this is one of those things that everyone should do. It is a rite of passage for being a Texan, I think. Or at least it is in this family. 🙂

At Home.

    This sounds exciting! (Although I am afraid of heights so maybe I wouldn’t go up after all)

      It is huge but you hardly feel it because it moves so slowly!

    You know… this is one I don’t think I would do. I’ve been on different ferris wheels and all I feel when On them is dread. EVEN as I look around and am amazed… I just want down and out. 🙂 (yes, I Know I am VERY silly) (so my boys tell me)
