Looking For the Best Bluebonnets Locations & Photo Opportunities

IF YOU'RE FROM TEXAS, YOU LOVE THE STATE FLOWER, THE BLUEBONNETS 

Or maybe I’m wrong and it’s everyone from Houston that is in a mad search to find the blooming beautiful bluebonnets. I have always enjoyed going on drives to see the fields of color just outside of Houston. I even have photos with Mochito (my fur baby) in a field of those adorable flowers.

Well, now that we have a little one we started looking for good places to capture those family moments with those gorgeous flowers. With a baby you have small windows to get those moments, so we started searching for closer to home photos opportunities. I had no clue that there were bluebonnets here in Houston. I’ll tell show where we have taken our photos the last few years.

BRENHAM

This is the place that everyone takes to for the sure photo-ops. It can be crowded and a bit of a drive on the weekends. It’s an hour and a half outside of Houston, but a cute drive. We did this pre-baby life. Not ready to go with the little guy yet. Maybe next year and make it a weekend trip.

SUGAR LAND

I didn’t know there were places with bluebonnets in Sugar Land until I was giving someone a tour of the place we once called home. Our guest got to experiment our state flower with us. 

HOUSTON

This year we tried researching the many updates and blogs about the best locations. But it wasn’t as easy. I think that hurricane Harvey might have had something to do with this as some of the recommendations didn’t turn out a great number of bluebonnets. At least the ones that we tried to go to, avoiding crowds.

Overall, I loved my photographs this year with both my children.

We finally succeeded and found a good place. TC Jester near 610 was our place this year. We had the place all to ourselves, no need to be parked on the side of the road, plenty of parking in the shopping center right in front of the field.

FUTURE PLANS

In the search for the best locations for bluebonnets, I came across some breathtaking places. Time to plan for these beautiful mini trips for the Texas bluebonnets.

  • MARBLE, TX
  • ENNIS, TX
  • FREDRICKSBURG, TX
