Festive Magic in the Christmas Capital of Texas®

Festive Magic in the Christmas Capital of Texas®

Have you ever dreamed of a Christmas holiday in the United States that feels just as magical and heartwarming as those scenes from your favourite festive movies? A White Christmas visiting the Rockefeller Centre Christmas Tree and iconic ball drop in New York City might immediately come to mind. Still, for a truly authentic festive hometown experience, there's a first stop you can't miss — and it might just surprise you!

Tucked away in the heart of Texas is a delightful hidden gem that comes alive with the spirit of the season. Grapevine, otherwise known as the Christmas Capital of Texas®, offers you an authentic vintage experience. Here’s why Grapevine should be at the top of your list for kickstarting a US Christmas holiday adventure.

A Festive Wonderland Awaits

You'll understand why it's crowned the Christmas Capital from the moment you arrive in Grapevine, Texas. Over 1,400 festive events unfold over 40 days, drawing in more than a million visitors who come to bask in the glow of millions of twinkling lights and magnificent decorations. It's a scene plucked right from the pages of a storybook, waiting for you to explore.

Relax into a Stress-Free Holiday

With direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane straight into DFW International Airport, it's never been easier for Aussies to get to the USA. Grapevine is an accessible festive choice, just a stone's throw from DFW International Airport. 

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is one of the fastest airports for clearing customs, with an average wait time of just 17.7 minutes. Coupled with a 10-minute journey to Grapevine, you can literally step off the plane and be transported straight into holiday magic.

Access Exclusive Christmas Experiences

We recommend you start your adventure on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad's North Pole Express®. It’s not every day that children get to live out their dream of a magical train ride bound for the North Pole, making it a perfect start to creating those lifetime memories. 

Adults aren't left out of the fun, either. Escape the usual and hop aboard the Wine Train for a Christmas experience with a twist. And if you're a fan of classic Christmas films, the Historic Palace Theatre's festive lineup is something you won't want to miss.
