Things To Do During The Holidays In The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

In from out of town and looking for things to do during the holiday season? Luckily for you, Dallas-Fort Worth has plenty to do. There are places to visit Santa Claus, go shopping and ice skating. In the mood for food and drink from Europe? Yes, we have that to. Take a look at the list below. Let us know what we missed.



Visit The Christmas Capital Of Texas: Grapevine

You will not be bored in the town of Grapevine, dubbed the Christmas Capital of Texas. There are lots of things to do and see including Christmas Wine Train, a hot chocolate bar, and a nightly light show. Regardless of age there is something to do.

Ice skate in Dallas? Around a Christmas tree? YES.

While this is not Rockefeller Center it is our opportunity to skate around a tree. Visit The Galleria and lace up the skates because nothing will get you in the holiday spirit quicker than ice skating around the nation's tallest indoor Christmas tree.

Take a picture with Santa Claus. Anywhere in Dallas - especially at Neiman Marcus in Downtown.

(See our full guide to where to get pics with Santa here: Santa Pictures - 2017 Complete Guide)

The flagship Neiman Marcus in Downtown Dallas has the best (and best-dressed?) Santa Claus in town. It's worth waiting in line to get your pic with the jolly ole guy in front of Neiman's fabulous tree.


In from Europe and miss home? Visit the Texas Christkindl Market

If you are visiting Dallas from across the pond then take advantage of the magic of outdoor Christmas markets. A quick trip to Arlington for the will get you the home experience you miss. Stroll through rows of tents and shop for handmade goods as gobble up Mama Moore’s Kettle Corn and other favorites.
