Looking for a little Christmas spirit, y’all? You’ve come to the right place! Grapevine, Texas has a long history of wonderful Christmas events, but in 2009 it became official when the Texas State Senate named this historic little town the Christmas Capital of Texas.
With more than 1,400 events over 40 days, it’s easy to see why. Over 1 million people visit Grapevine to get in the Christmas spirit. Whether they’re visiting ICE! at the Gaylord Texan, riding the North Pole Express on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad, or admiring millions of twinkling lights, this is a one-stop town for Christmas festivities.
It’s been 16 months since I left, but I’m back in Texas and enjoying time at home for Christmas. Lucky for me, my parents’ home is within walking distance of Grapevine’s Main Street. This week, I took a walk to take in the sights of this charming town.
Christmas is just around the corner, so make your way to Grapevine before the decorations are put away. If you’re not in the Dallas area, keep scrolling for a photo tour of the Christmas Capital of Texas!
