Last weekend we decided to take a little adventure to see the Summerfest featuring The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. There were so many fun things to do and most of them were free!

The first thing we did was go to the concierge and picked up a map for the OOHS & Oz Self-Guided Art Tour, The Self-Guided Horticulture Tour, and The Lost Treasures of Oz Scavenger Hunt. 

With her map in hand, we were off to find all the original artwork from local Texas artists.

We also ran into other fun Wizard of Oz decorations along the way!

Madison and Jeff had fun playing checkers and cornhole.

We ran into some fun things to see along the way, like a very tall fountain and the Gaylord made of out Legos from Legoland!

And it wouldn’t be a trip to see the Summerfest featuring The Wonderful Wizard of Oz without a picture with the scarecrow and the tin man in front of the yellow brick road. 🙂
