Trade Days Lodging Canton TX

Trade Days Lodging Canton TXCanton’s First Monday Trade Days is an age-old tradition in East Texas, as well as the nation’s largest flea market. Trade Days consists of 450 acres of booths; if you want to see everything, plan on attending more than one day. It’s also nearly impossible to make a day trip out of it from DFW. By the time you make the drive and park, your morning is nearly over. If you’re a first-timer, you will want to take advantage of Trade Days lodging options in the Canton area. Here are some tips for finding area lodging:

Make sure it’s close to the market

You’re not staying a night in a hotel just to drive an hour to Trade Days. Make sure the place you pick is in Canton, or very close. Trust us, you don’t want to spend extra time driving after a day of walking, shopping, haggling and funnel cakes.

Ask if they do a shuttle

Trade Days is a huge event in the area. Before you book, ask if your accommodations provide a shuttle to the market. This also saves you the headache of parking. Should you decide to purchase a larger item, like furniture, you can always swing back by the pavilion to pick it up.

Look for other amenities

You may be so excited you just can’t hide it about a weekend chock-full of antiquing. However, your travel partners may not share the same sentiment. Look for a place that has other activities (like a pool, spa, live music, golf, etc) in the event one of your travel companions and kids would rather relax while you shop the 2nd day. Relaxing amenities (like a hot tub) will also soothe some sore feet at the end of the day.

Book Ahead

The Trade Days lodging options in Canton tend to sell out – so plan ahead, and book ahead.

Ask if they have dining options

Given that the whole town of Canton fills up during Trade Days, it goes without saying that the restaurants do too – at least for dinner! Look for a place that has an on-site dining option or in-room kitchenettes to save lengthy waits at area restaurants.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort is the perfect place for Trade Days Lodging. We are only 1/4 of a mile from the Marketplace and provide a shuttle to the main pavilions. Our property also has a relaxing pool, hot tub, scenic nature trails and even an on-site spa so you can relax after a harried day of shopping. We also have a restaurant in our Grand Lodge and live music Friday nights. We do fill up, though, so book ahead for the next First Monday Trade Days by calling 877-927-3439.
