If there’s any month you should consider checking out Grapevine, Texas, it’s December.
Why, you ask?
Well, in December, Grapevine just about explodes with Christmas. The folks in Grapevine are so darned serious about the holiday they’ve gone ahead and registered trademark: “Grapevine – The Christmas Capital of Texas®”
Okay, so registering a trademark doesn’t exactly make a thing what someone says it is – so why does Grapevine call itself the Capital of Christmas? Well, it could be that they play host to more than 1,400 Christmas-themed events in and around the month of December.
Yeah, you read that right: 1,400+ Christmas events in a little under a month. Things like the North Pole Express, Christmas at the Palace Theatre, Grapevine Opry Christmas Shows, a Parade of Lights, the Twinkle Light Boat Parade, Christmas Wine Trains, Le Theatre de Marionette, a Victorian Christmas at Nash Farm and about 1,392 more things to do.Grapevine, herself, gets all gussied up with millions of lights, enormous decorations, animated characters throughout town, and more. Just about every day in December is a Christmas spectacle in Grapevine and you’re invited!
Come on down with the family any old day of the month and find fun, Christmas things to do like hearing the Texas Tenors at Grapevine’s Historic Palace Theatre, taking the kids to Snowland at Great Wolf Lodge or, better yet, go check out Scuba Santa and his diving elf in Sea Life Aquarium’s 145,000-gallon tank.
Yes: Scuba Santa. Would I kid you?
Need Lodging in North Texas?
Christmas or not, Northern Texas is a great place to visit. Come see why Santa visits our region just to scuba dive and, while you’re here, stay at one of our many, fine bed and breakfasts. More pleasant than a motel, homier than a hotel – and what ’til you try one of the home-cooked breakfasts!
