Texas Bluebonnet Season: Get Out and Enjoy the Bluebonnet Trails

Although there are numerous fun sites and events in and around the Kingwood/Humble/Atascocita area, it is sometimes fun to escape Northeast Houston and see other parts of the great state of Texas.

And during the springtime, one of the truest “Texas” things to do is to take a drive out to the Hill Country and soak in the wild flowers. The perfect time to go on this adventure can vary based on the weather and other factors, but bluebonnets typically start showing up in late March and most festivals and tours take place during the month of April.

Here are some websites to help you research your trip.

Additionally, each April 24, Texas celebrates State Wildflower Day, and many cities have pageants, parades, and other celebrations. The best way to learn what is scheduled is to contact the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, 4801 La Crosse Avenue, Austin, TX 78739, (512) 292-4100. During March, April, and May, the Department of Transportation also has a telephone hotline with information on where bluebonnets are blooming: (800) 452-9292.
