This is the time of year I miss Dallas the most. The State Fair is always a must do. Can't wait to either move back or simply be able to take my wife and kiddos one day.

What other state fairs have you guys been to, in other states? Any other good ones out there? I'll go to them given the chance.

Since we have decided to no longer spend any of our money in the city of Dallas, the State Fair is out of our plans for good. Its a good fair too, although the last time we went was in 2010.

I'd say if opportunity presents itself - I'd go to any state/county fair you can just to check it out. I've had some good times at the Texas State Fair, but I've had good times at fairs up north as well. Not better, just different. Also some of these other smaller fairs are less of a ripoff and less crowded which makes for a better time.

Bah - I have to insert the "old person" caveat. I've been in TX 22 years now - so it's been 22 years or so since I've been to any others - so mix that in a little.

I've been to the New Mexico State Fair. It's actually pretty cool also. Lot's of American Indian things such as arts & crafts and especially food. And, being NM, lots of the food is laced with green chile. It's definitely a different, but cool, experience.

Do the Puyallup..... state fair Washington. Best weather of any state fair and the apples and cherries are perfect that time of year too.

the coupons are brilliant because you'll overspend and not realize it. that's an old carny trick
