During the holidays is a great time for the family together and enjoy all the fun things to see and do – especially in Big D.
We have light amazing displays, a Santa that shoots fireworks as he backflips on an ice rink, roller coasters with snow sledding, and even millions of pounds of ice carved just like Frosty the Snowman. While they are all fun, there’s something to be said with all the work you go to for a few minutes of fun. Then there’s always the issue with trying to figure out what “thing” is going to make everyone happy all at the same place. And if you have little ones, waiting in line doesn’t make a good start to any outing.
This weekend our family was able to enjoy a holiday staycation to enjoy SPARKLE, courtesy of the Hilton Anatole. The experience proved to be a great solution to getting the whole family in the holiday spirit! Sparkle “Christmas at the Anatole” gives families exactly what they need: holiday fun for everyone in one place and all indoors!
