Dallas And Its Surrounding Areas Bring It When It Comes To Hyper-Festive Displays Of Christmas Lights. Here Are The Best Spots For Getting In The Spirit.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, what with various neighborhoods and shopping centers around North Texas having adorned their exteriors with literally millions of Christmas lights of all colors and fashions and to varying degrees of brilliance.
Dying to get into the holiday spirit yourself? Heading around to check out the region’s finer Christmas lights displays will do the trick, especially if it’s at one of the below spots.
Perhaps the best light show in the North Texas region, Vitruvian Lights lets you can wander through 12 acres of 550 illuminated trees wrapped in 1.5 million LED lights. To add to the spectacle, the lights brilliantly reflect on the surrounding body of water. That’s pretty unique — and makes for some killer selfie-taking opps. Better still, it’s free to the public. The display runs through January 1.
Baseball season is over for the Texas Rangers, but you can still make your way to Arlington for Enchant Christmas. This spectacle featuring the world’s largest Christmas lights maze runs through December 31. The two 25-foot LED light reindeer are also a sight to be seen. Bring some cash, too, as some 85 vendors are on site, selling holiday-related goodies. Admission costs $29.95 for adults, and $21.95 for seniors and children aged 5 to 14. Kids four years old and under get in free.
