Cheap Tickets to the State Fair of Texas
September 8, 2015
As a Texan, attending the State Fair of Texas is a rite of passage where a belly full of fried food and an armload of carnival prizes are badges of honor. Don’t worry about the fried food—you can walk it off on your treks between the midway, Big Tex, the auto show and the wine garden. But you can’t get back admission dollars you could have saved by using one of these tried-and-true discount ticket options for the great State Fair of Texas. It’s “deep in the heart of Texas,” not “deep hole in your wallet,” folks. So be savvy this year, and plan your visits to the State Fair around one of these cheap ticket options—and save your dollars for Fletcher’s Corny Dogs and rides on the Ferris wheel!
