So, you know how to get into the State Fair of Texas using one of these discounts. But, how do you go about saving money while you're inside the fair? It's not the cheapest day out. But it can be made more manageable with these amazing tips from my readers.
6 Tips for saving money inside the State Fair of Texas.
1. $1 Bottled Water and Soda: Inside the main entrance, next to the Women's Museum, soda and bottled water are sold for $1. (It's $3 to $4 everywhere else in the fair.) Also, you can get $1 drinks at the DAR House. ~ Anonymous Reader Tip
2. Discount coupons for meals: Pick up one of the Visitor's Guides at the main entrance, or at one of the information booths. Inside you'll find coupons for up to 4 coupons OFF some food items. ~Tip from Reader Kristy
3. Cheapest beer and wine: Find the cheapest wine and beer at the Coca-Cola Food Court located at one end of the SkyRide. It's cheaper there than anywhere else in the fair. ~ Reader Charli
4. Get 30 free coupons: Sign up for the Dallas Morning News subscription ($17) near the Wine Area behind the Cotton Bowl and they'll give you 30 Fair Coupons for free. ~ Reader Naomi
5. Discount coupons for the Chinese Lantern Festival Exhibit: You'll find printable coupons to use to get a discount to get in to the Chinese Lantern Festival here. By the way, if you see the exhibit by day it's cheaper. ~ Reader Jerri
