It’s that time of the year again! We’re heading into the holidays, which means it’s time to make this the merriest time of the year for you and family with some fun holiday activities.
With 4 locations within the DFW metroplex, we get to experience tons of fun things to do during the holiday season. This year, we’re going to give you our top 5 things to do in DFW during the holidays!
The Christmas Capital of Texas
Lucky for all DFW residents, we live really close to the Christmas Capital of Texas, otherwise known as Grapevine! During the Christmas season, Grapevine is home to over 1,400 Christmas activities, decorations, events and even more!
At the center of it all is the Gaylord Texan, which goes all out during this time of the year. With a 52-foot Christmas tree, over 1.5 million holiday lights, a life-size real gingerbread house, snow tubing slides and over 2 million pounds of ice exhibits, you won’t even know where to look!

Interlochen Christmas Light Tour
If you’ve never been to the Arlington neighborhood of Interlochen during Christmas time, then you absolutely need to check this amazing Christmas light extravaganza out. Every year from Dec. 13-25, this neighborhood of over 200 homes deck out their neighborhood with Christmas lights, blow-ups, decorations and more!
Whether you’re taking someone on a date or taking the whole family to see Christmas lights, it won’t disappoint!
