Fort Worth Date Night: Sans the San (FW Business Press)

Fort Worth Date Night: Sans the San
December 23, 2008

Clam chowder, the Golden Gate Bridge, Ghirardelli Square and all the great hole-in-the-wall restaurants make San Francisco one of the top tourist spots in the country...if not, the world. I have been fortunate enough to visit this great city. It was not December, so, the city was not all "holidayed" out with lights. One of the top visitor attractions during December is a Christmas Light tour on a cable car. How fun would that be???

There is another Frisco and it is much closer to the DFW area. It just doesn't have a "San" in front of it. Each year, the town of Frisco proudly plays host to "Christmas in the Square." Frisco is expecting over 450,000 visitors during its run. There will be many activities going on each night from 5:30 pm to 10 pm through January 1, 2009.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of Christmas in the Square is the Christmas lights. Their Web site describes the whole experience as, "The largest choreographed holiday lights and music display in Texas combined with family-oriented activities to produce a 'signature destination event' for Frisco."
