Festive Family Fun


In Grapevine (705 S. Main St., grapevinet­exasusa. com), also known as the “Christmas Capital of Texas,” visitors can board the North Pole Express on select dates in November and December for a journey to the North Pole. Patrons are greeted by singing elves and Mrs. Claus. (Grown-ups can even board a Christmas Wine Train for some alcoholic holiday cheer.)

A Texas-sized display of Christmas spirit continues at the Gaylord Texan (1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine) with a life-sized gingerbrea­d house, ice slides and snow tubing opportunit­ies. Downtown McKinney’s post-Thanksgivi­ng “Home for the Holidays” festival (111 N. Tennessee St., mckinneyte­xas.org) offers candleligh­t shopping, local vendors, and more, Nov. 27-29.

In Dallas, don’t miss “12 Days of Christmas” at the Dallas Arboretum (8525 Garland Road, dallasarbo­retum.org), an illuminate­d outdoor exhibit that dazzles—especially at night.
