Fort Worth Winter Activities

Winter in the DFW area

Although the weather is warm, the holiday season is here! Winter brings all sorts of fun activities to the area, and we have compiled some of our favorite activities for adults and families alike! Check out some ways you can spread some holiday cheer and treat your friends or family to a great time.

Winter Wonderlands

If you are looking for some unique winter fun, check out Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine. Here you will find ICE!, which is an indoor winter wonderland that features several attractions that are sure to bring joy to anyones faces.

Some of the things you can expect at ICE! include:

  • Walk-through holiday attraction, kept at a chilly 9 degrees
  • Two million pounds of hand-carved ice sculptures
  • Four ice slides for maximum sliding fun
  • Six individual rooms depicting the story of Frosty the Snowman
  • The Frostbite Factory — a live carving zone for those interested in ice carving

For a quick tip, go during non-peak hours for a discount.

Outdoor Ice Skating

Through January 5, experience the city’s first outdoor skating rink located at the Coyote Drive-In theater. For just $10 for adults and $8 for kids, you will get admission, skates and free access to the concession stand. While you are there, you should also see a movie at the Coyote Drive-In! Tickets to the movie are sold separately, but it is still a very reasonable price for skating and a movie.

Other rinks around the area include:

  • Klyde Warren Park- Dallas
  • Christmas in the Square- Frisco
  • Hilton Anatole – Dallas

Gift of Lights

The Texas Motor Speedway is once again hosting the Gift of Lights this year, and it is supposedly brighter and bigger than ever before. The Gift of Lights is a drive-thru display with more than 600 LED light displays that will leave you and your family bubbling with holiday cheer inside! Once you are done viewing the lights, check out Santa’s Village, where you can take photos and slide down the outdoor tubing hill and more entertainment.

Penguin Tour

The Fort Worth Zoo will once again host a Penguin Tour where you can get to know the zoos rockhopper and African penguins and take a behind the scenes tour of how these penguins live. The tour will begin at the Penguins exhibit, where you can watch as keepers feed and train the penguins and answer your questions. Next you will meet some penguins in an exclusive VIP area that only you and your five guests can see! This is a unique opportunity and is one of the more unique winter activities available. Participants will receive a custom Fort Worth Zoo tote bag filled with a plush penguin and other items as well. For more information visit their website.
