Worth area!
More than a Tree Farm
A favorite holiday tradition for many families is visiting tree farms and picking out the perfect Christmas tree. Check out this new spin on an old favorite.
While visiting family in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for Thanksgiving we visited Christmas in the Country at the Flower Mound Christmas Tree (http://www.flowermoundchristmastrees.com/). Instead of just selling Christmas trees, they offer kids’ activities that will bring smiles to faces old and young.And to make it even better, it is all FREE (expect for the trees, you have to pay for those). They even treat you to hot chocolate and cider on the weekends.
The Flower Mound Christmas Trees offers:
– a bounce house
– a slide
– a hay bail pyramid
– a merry-go-round
– wooden play structures
– life-size Christmas decorations – great for Christmas pictures
– and a kids-sized choo choo train
