December in the Dallas area might not be a winter wonderland, but what we lack in snow we make up with loads of holiday activities and plenty of seasonal cheer.
And when it comes to seasonal cheer, if any place knows how to jolly up the holiday it's Grapevine. Dubbed the "Christmas Capital of Texas," this Dallas suburb boasts a wide variety of holiday events and attractions, including the largest lighted Christmas parade in North Texas.
More festive spirit awaits at the Texas Cristkindl Market, which this year has become part of Enchant, a veritable holiday festival featuring 85 vendors, live entertainment, food trucks, a light maze and an outdoor ice skating rink.
Don’t like ice skating? How about sledding? At Six Flags Over Texas' Holiday in the Park celebration, you’ll not only find a snowy hill for sledding, there’s also reindeer dance parties, light shows, s'more cookouts and of course a slew of epic rides.
And there’s nothing like the twinkle of Christmas lights to ring in the season and one of the best places to see them is at Prairie Lights, a drive-through holiday park that showcases one the most impressive light displays in North Texas.
So, if you want to have the most wonderful time of the year in Dallas, these 10best yuletide happenings are sure to dazzle the entire family.
