University Blvd in Dallas is usually pretty good. My parents live one street over and we go look at the lights in their neighborhood every year.

Drove through Swill Ave, tonight. The ones that were done are nice, but not all were "into it". We will do Park Cities when we go to exchange gifts with the people I used to nanny for....their street gets really into it all.

I used to go to Eldorado a lot; we haven't been there in a few years, though. It is good! I think there was one neighborhood in Plano off of Legacy that used to have a lot of displays. I think it was called Deerfield? I've never been there, though. Also, Springpark at the Richardson/Garland border is kind of nice.

The one in Arlington is Interlochen. It's where we always went growing up.

Taken from the City of Arlington website:
Interlochen - The holiday lights in the Arlington neighborhood of Interlochen are known throughout the Metroplex as a stunning display. The light competition usually begins in mid-December. The route to view the lights traditionally begins at Randol Mill at Westwood, west of Cooper Street. For more information, call the City Manager's Office at 817-459-6100.

I agree...the one at Interlochen is nice...I grew up in Fort Worth and we used to always go there...It's a pretty good drive from Dallas but if you have any friends in the Fort Worth/Arlington area make a trip...It's worth it....

Santa's Village in Richardson is cute. I think it's their Community Center between Campbell and Belt Line. Wish I had an address for you, maybe Dallas Child has it listed. You get a free polaroid w/ Santa, but get in line at 5:15-5:30, Santa arrives at 6. A few years ago they had pony rides. Lots of lights, little houses and activities for the kids.

If anyone is interested there are carriage rides through Highland Park to view the lights. http://www.carriagetours.net/christmastours.html

Armstrong Avenue has a bunch of houses decorated.

Oooh. Good post. Always looking for a great neighborhood to drive Juls around!!!

DH and I did the carriage rides a few years ago before we were married. I swore he was going to propose to me. But I was wrong. lol
