Visit the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Grapevine. At Christmas time it is beautiful! However, it is not cheap. Even if you want to only explore the train, lights, and lifesize gingerbread house inside the hotel, you will still pay $12 to park! However, if you have tickets to ICE your parking will be validated. ICE is amazing, it is such fun to put on the blue parkas and freeze as you marvel at the creations. It is expensive though and this year we paid even more to do the snow tubing. It was so much fun, but my back hurt for 2 days! Everyone had a great time!
We went the day before Thanksgiving with my sister's family.
This year it was all Shrek ice sculptures.
it was cold!
The nativity scene
snow tubing! The kids loved riding by themselves! We got to ride 10 times with our combo ticket.
