I'm going to be in Garland next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!
The cheapest thing to do in Garland would be to get a Day Pass to the DART ($5) and go to Downtown Dallas. You can walk over to the Dallas Museum of Art (free) or the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art (also free). The State Fair might also be happening by then; DART drops you off by the main entry gate. It also takes you to the Deep Ellum area, which has a lot of inexpensive things to do.
