The Holiday Season is a beautiful time of year in the Dallas Metroplex, even though the ground isn’t always blanketed in snow. The unpredictable Texas winter weather brings good tidings displayed in the season’s jubilant decorations adorning the homes new and old from north Dallas to Fort Worth; and from Sunnyvale to to Corsicana. The lackluster economy can’t stop the Christmas sparkle. If you’re looking to see Christmas lights in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, you can still find holiday decor from the festive to funky, from traditional to the avante-guarde in neighborhoods throughout DFW.
Dallas, Texas Holiday Lights
Few places offer the nostalgia of Highland Park in the wintertime, especially during the Christmas Season. Homes in this area compete for attention with twinkling lights, classy wreaths and sneak peaks into living rooms adorned with every Christmas decoration imaginable. The area is brimming with old-timey homes built in the early 1900s, harkening to the simplicity of days long past. Stop off at Highland Park Village for a Mocha Latte to enjoy as you drive through the gorgeous neighborhoods in University Park, Highland Park and the Park Cities.
Kessler Park Christmas Lights Display
The Kessler Park neighborhood in north Oak Cliff overlooking the Downtown Dallas skyline and in the shadows of Methodist Central Hospital, will once again be displaying thousands of lights on the traffic islands of this beautiful community and complimented with dozens of homes being decorated in colorful displays. Details about this historical neighborhood and location can be found at kesslerpark.org/holidaylights.htm
Arlington, Texas Holiday Lights
One Arlington neighborhood, Interlochen, offers a spectacular neighborhood lighting display that attracts tourists from nearby cities. The homes of Interlochen are older, and set upon the largest hills in DFW, and make for a brilliant display. The area is so packed that roads are closed and residents receive entry-passes to get past the throngs of those seeking to partake in the area’s holiday spirit.
