Hey, ladies! Any DFW area moms in here? If so, I need to know where to go to see some awesome Christmas lights! This is only my second Christmas here since moving from Florida, and I didn't really find any super done-up areas last year. My kids loooooove Christmas lights, so if you know any good neighborhoods that deck out this time of the year, let me know!

Grapvine does a parade of lights, not sure when they will do it this year, but you can go on line and look it up. Also there is a place in Arlington, Joe Pool lake that does a light show.

Thanks! I did hear that Grapevine has a big thing going on, so we'll probably hit that up this weekend. I hadn't heard about Joe Pool Lake, though, so I'll look that up! Thanks for the info!

 Have you tried the Christmas Park land of lights drive thru in Athens?? It's a little drive but so worth it.  Don't be surprised if there is a lineup of cars to get in :P

I think there is something like 4 million lights?  SD and DH go every year and she LOVES it.  It's only 20$ per car... check it out :)

Grapevine. They have a gorgeous light and ice display at the Gaylord, Then Christmas on the square is loads of fun. They even make it snow on certain nights. Also you can google parade of lights in your area, and find the neighborhoods that are really good. But we love Grapevine at Christmas.

We're in North Dallas, around Lake Highlands. Making a drive isn't an issue, though.
