Each Christmas Eve, we celebrate with family and friends at Campo Verde Mexican Restaurant in Arlington, their thousands of colorful Christmas lights glowing and flickering as we talk, hug and fill our bellies with chips, complimentary queso and holiday spirit!
Following our feast, we caravan down to the Kulesz Christmas Light Display, where we follow a short line of light lookers as they, and we, ooohhh and aaawwww at the amazing display!
Campo Verde takes reservations, except on Christmas Eve after 4pm. We go every year and are still able to be seated after only a short wait.
Kids will love the model train that travels around the restaurant, crossing bridges and whistling as it goes!
As well as Mexican and Tex-Mex specialties, they also offer American food, such as cheeseburgers and chicken fried steak and exotic meat, such as buffalo fajitas and rattlesnake.

For 24 years, Arlington attorney David Kulesz has decorated his spacious home and tennis court in Dalworthington Gardens with hundreds of thousands of twinkling white lights, all in an effort to raise awareness for Alzheimers! In recent years, the neighbors along the cul-de-sac have lit up their homes with the same white lights, making an amazing holiday spectacle!!
Last year, when we visited on Christmas Eve, there were even carolers!!
While all activities and attractions reviewed by Having Fun in the Texas Sun (HFitTS) are fun, they, as anything in life, hold some potential for accident or injury. HFitTS is only offering their opinion and experience, and should be held harmless in case of accident.
HFitTS does not accept financial compensation for reviews, so that all opinions are honest and unbiased. Some destinations do extend invitations and offer complementary admittance, some know we are there for a review, and others have no idea until they get a link to the blog.
While HFitTS does give the positive and negative opinions of places and activities we have enjoyed in a review, HFitTS will not post a derogatory review on a location. Life is too short to spend 4-5 hours reliving a bad experience, and we have had plenty of them. Posting would be completely contrary to our name. We just don’t write, talk or even think about those places. Ewww.
HFitTS tries to give the most up to date information on hours, prices, etc. but readers should ALWAYS check with the location before going.
There are no guarantees by HFitTS, either written or implied, of you having a good time at any of the locations we review. Some people just won’t have a good time anywhere.
HFitTS does guarantee that we always strive to follow the Girl Scout Way, and LEAVE A PLACE BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT.
