We had the most wonderful time a few days ago and it did not cost us a dime....well except for the Santa photos and the hot chocolate. Our friends took us to the Gaylord Texan, a beautiful hotel and resort that goes all out for the holidays and the decorations are unbelievable. It was like walking in a world all on its own. I highly recommend this if you are in the Dallas area. You just go into the "Lobby" and look around . They have a miniature train display all over the area and if you go to where they are having the ice show you, they have a little Christmas entertainment for free. If you have a little extra cash on hand take in the ice show too, it is extraordinary! They have a few great restaurants and a nice coffee bar all in the promenade with lots of seating to watch the people going by. There is also a wonderful light display on the outside as well with darling figures that includes a Santa and his reindeer water skiing in a small pond...too cool! Oh and if you really need to see a ladybug be sure and check out the trains located on the left side of the lobby in little San Antonio to see this cute bug train.
