11 Majestic Spots In Texas That Will Make You Feel Like You’re At The North Pole
I know what you’re thinking: North Pole and Texas in the same sentence? Is this a joke? No, y’all, I’m as serious as can be. Contrary to popular belief, some places in Texas DO get snow on a regular basis. Here are 11 of them, and they’re absolutely breathtaking.
This small town near Dallas looks absolutely breathtaking covered in snow. These lonely train tracks are hauntingly beautiful.
2. Big Bend
Snow-capped mountains are a classic image of winter, and despite the stereotypes about Texas, we actually do have them here. If you think Big Bend is beautiful throughout the year, you should see it this time of year.
Comanche is a North-Central Texas town that doesn't see snow every year, but when it does, it's a force to be reckoned with. There are few things more stunning than tree branches covered in white, supporting the weight of snowfall.
4. Great Wolf Lodge
A bit different than the rest of this list, Grapevine's Great Wolf Lodge turns into a Christmas village during the month of December. You'll feel like you've stepped into Santa's workshop with the cute little gingerbread house, snowflakes dangling from the ceiling, pictures with the big man himself, and more.
Arlington is no stranger to snow, but that doesn't make it any less gorgeous when it happens. These roads are definitely impassable by Texas standards.
Snow (at least in this amount) is a rarity for East Texas. Seeing the pine trees and other lush greenery frozen over is an eerie sight indeed, but it's strangely beautiful.
The rest of Grapevine outside of the lodge sees snow fairly often. This scene is desolate yet breathtaking.
Richardson, in the DFW area, turns into a Winter Wonderland at Christmastime. This frozen lake and iced over trees are picturesque as can be.
9. Richland Hills
Richland Hills isn't a widely known town since it's near so many major cities, but it should be a more popular winter destination because it looks absolutely gorgeous when it snows. I can imagine Santa riding through here on his sleigh any minute.
10. Fort Worth
Fort Worth is almost unrecognizable in this shot. The grass is frostbitten and the trees have blankets of snow sitting atop them.
Dallas gets snow most winters, but some years are more mild than others - this one was definitely the opposite. Everything is frozen solid and silent as can be...a beautiful and serene thought, indeed.
Have you been to any of these winter wonderlands? Where else in Texas transforms into a snowy paradise this time of year?
