The holiday season is one of the best times to escape to Fort Worth with the family!

- Be prepared to feel the holiday spirit as you visit the larger than life Christmas tree in Sundance Square Plaza and celebrate the Parade of Lights as it makes its way through downtown.

- Take in a mile-long path with suspended strands and tunnels of light at the Botanic Gardens for the internationally acclaimed Lightscape exhibit.

- Grab a cup of hot cocoa and head to the Stockyards for shopping, ice-skating and pictures with Santa.

- For light displays take in the Modern Lights at the Modern Art Museum or head to Texas Motor Speedway to see over 2 million LEDs at the Gift of Lights.

- Top off your visit with a trip to Bass Hall or Casa Manana for a memorable holiday production.
