On Monday, November 30, the Gaylord Texan will offer the lowest rate of the holiday season with 30% off!  Why is this such a popular deal?  Because this is one of the BEST PLACES EVER TO VISIT!

Gaylord Texan ~  Lone Star Christmas 2016

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year….” after last weekend’s visit to the Gaylord Texan. In fact, I’ve made it a family tradition to kick off the holidays and get in the spirit of the season.

Visiting the Gaylord Texan is like stepping into a fantasy of the Christmas season. The resort and convention center are beautifully decorated. It’s hard not to feel festive when you marvel at 2 million twinkling lights and acres of larger-than-life decorations.

You don’t have to spend a dime if you want as you can just walk around and instantly feel Christmas flowing through your veins.

If attending this year, also enjoy heartwarming visits with Santa, ICE! featuring Santa Claus is Coming to Town- as well as Snow Tubing, Milk & Cookies with Mrs. Claus, The Elf on the Shelf® Scavenger Hunt,  and other exclusive holiday events and attractions to get you in the spirit of the season!
A perfect topper to an already amazing evening, the resort has Glacier Glide Ice Skating!  Enjoy a perfect day or evening under the stars by going on a yuletide glide at Gaylord Texan’s 5,000 square-foot outdoor ice rink.

This place is like something I have never experienced. From an incredible land of ice and snow halfway around the world, a remarkably talented team of artisans travels to Grapevine, Texas — just to create the amazing ICE!featuring Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town attraction at the Gaylord Texan Resort! This band of master carvers spends nearly a month, taking shifts inside a 9-degree freezer, to transform two million pounds of ice into a breathtaking winter wonderland.

And to top the weekend off… the twelve-lane tubing hill that is filled with fun factory craziness and thrilling hills covered in REAL SNOW! There is no cooler family-friendly Christmas activity in Dallas.

Truly it’s a family event to remember, my daughter and her friend could not stop saying “thank you!”
