Highland Park Christmas Lights, Dallas

I love looking at big and beautiful homes any time of year, but during December the homes in Highland Park in Dallas are amazing! Christmas Lights sparkle in the night as you drive down the street.wpid-20141226_194952.jpg
1.   Route
Start at Preston Rd. and Beverly Dr.  Take Beverly East all the way down.  Be aware that it dead ends, without a cul-de-sac, and can be tricky to turn around.
For the best driving tour, follow the limos and horse drawn carriages!
Horse Drawn Carriages 
There are companies that offer horse drawn carriages rides in Highland Park to see the lights!

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.
