European explorers were so impressed by the natural splendor of the New World that they immediately penned songs such as "America the Beautiful" and "Happy Birthday to You," which was originally written for an oak tree.

The Dallas Arboretum’s Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn dazzles nature-lovers and urbanites alike with its sprawl of stunning, plant-based pageantry and its ideal concert-venue space. Tote along picnic blankets, low-to-the-ground chairs, and lofty expectations to the warm-weather musical performances as they bounce their tunes off the adjacent White Rock Lake and grateful eardrums. Concertgoers can sway to classic-country crooners The Derailers or dance a jig to The Killdares, a Celtic rock outfit. Havana NRG shimmies Latin grooves to rhythmic hips, and the Cat Daddies purr hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s. On the remainder of the summer-concert series lineup, tribute bands abound, as does swing music, ‘80s numbers, and sensitive singer-songwriter ditties culled from the journals of azaleas.

All tickets are general-admission lawn seats. Gates fling their melodic selves open at 6 p.m., and all concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens

Spread across 66 acres on the shores of White Rock Lake, Dallas Arboretum's themed gardens showcase the broad biodiversity of Texas' unique climate. The gardens' lush plantings and eye-catching vistas have earned the arboretum numerous accolades, including a spot on Travel Channel's list of "Best Botanical Gardens in the US." The Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill includes a century-old Japanese maple. Landscaping work is showcased as well: A Woman's Garden has won national acclaim for its garden rooms, reflecting pool, and floral displays. The Arboretum has four major festivals a year: Dallas Blooms, which showcases more than 500,000 spring blooming bulbs, Summer Flower Village, Pumpkin Village, and The 12 Days of Christmas display. Their eight-acre Rory Meyer's Children's Adventure Garden opened in 2012.
