$12 for 4 tickets to Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House July 16, 2010

If you haven’t been to the Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House at Fair Park in Dallas, you should definitely put it on your calendar! We visited it a couple of years ago and it was gorgeous. The lush grass and canopy of shady trees just begs for a picnic, and my son (then 2) couldn’t decide which was more fun — running around the giant fountain or sitting at the edge of the fish pond, watching the fish, frogs, and bugs.

Admission (for both the Gardens & the Butterfly House) is normally $8 Adults, $6 Seniors (60+), $4 Children (3-11), and free for under 3. Save a bundle with this deal! TODAY you can buy 4 tickets to the Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House for just $12 total! If you’ll be in the DFW area any time between now and the end of 2010, definitely consider this one.

There’s a limit of two purchases per person, so get one 4-pack for you and give one 4-pack as a gift! This would make an especially good gift to folks who are new to the area or who will have company in town at any point between now and December 31, 2010. (Note that there is an additional admission fee during the State Fair, Sept. 24 – Oct. 17.)

Bring your camera and a picnic!

Expires: The tickets expire December 31, 2010.  The deal ends Tuesday, July 20, 2010.

EXPIRED: $3 OFF per ticket at Dallas Zoo May 10, 2010

UPDATE: It turns out that neither the Dallas Zoo nor AdPages realized this coupon was still up on the web! Oops! It looks like we unintentionally found a loop hole. The coupon has been taken down as of 7/12/2010, but check out the $1 admission day on 7/15/2010!

What a deal! If you live in or near Dallas, or plan to visit this fabulous city before the end of September, PRINT THIS NOW.

I found a killer printable coupon for the Dallas Zoo! You’ll save $3 OFF any full-price admission with this coupon, up to 6 tickets per coupon! Coupons for the Dallas Zoo are pretty rare to find, so this one is worth printing now and sticking in your glove box.

Have you heard about their amazing new Giants of the Savanna habitat that opens Memorial Day weekend? My kids and I have had such a fun time watching this habitat being built, and we visited Gypsy and Jenny, the zoo’s elephants, in their old habitats for the last time last week. The elephants have moved to the new 11 acre habitat and joined the new elephants successfully! The giraffes are next to move, and then when the habitat opens, we’ll be able to FEED the giraffes! How cool will that be?!?
