Looking at Christmas lights has always been a family tradition of ours. One year we even rented a limousine to make it extra special and drove around DFW with our neighbors! Because we think many of you have the same tradition, here is a list of the best holiday lights in Dallas-Fort Worth - both drive-thru displays and immersive experiences. And this doesn't even include all of the amazing neighborhoods you should check out! Maybe we'll save that for another post...

Drive Thru Displays

Prairie Lights

When: Through Saturday, December 31 2022

Where: Lynn Creek Park, Grand Prairie

Cost: $50 per car General Admission; $149 per car Fast Pass 

Prairie Lights is one of the most well-known drive-thru light experiences in DFW. Prepare to be dazzled with 4 million lights set along 2 miles of path including hundreds of ALL-NEW displays. The 2022 Holiday Village located halfway through is back better than ever with carnival rides, concessions, photos with Santa, the magical walk-thru forest, and the return of holiday shopping! Then you'll get to end your experience with the infamous light tunnel which is the perfect finale.
