Family Christmas Fun: Trains at North Park Mall

Post may contain affiliate links.

Each year, we make a list of the fun things we want to do for Christmas in Dallas. First I introduced you to Sparkle at the Hilton Anatole, now I want to introduce you to the Trains at NorthPark.

Trains at NorthPark

In it’s 16th year at NorthPark Center, The Trains at NorthPark offer 1,600 feet of track and take you on a journey of America. We had taken our 2 older kids when they were toddlers to this event, and remember it fondly. This year, we were invited out to check what this year’s exhibit has to offer and I have to say our kids were ECSTATIC.

Christmas Family Fun Trains at NorthPark Dallas, TX

Our toddlers are obsessed with trains. Our youngest would wait patiently for each train to come by, before jumping and cheering.  Our older tot, raced the trains by trying to out-run them. Our older kids marveled at the detail each train scene provided.

Everything is VERY kid friendly.I loved that my kids could explore the trains on their own and create in their minds what exactly was going on.

The Trains at NorthPark run from November 22, 2014 – January 4, 2015.
