Many North Texans will travel over the holiday season, but those who don’t leave D-FW can take an imaginary journey across America through this 31st annual exhibit at NorthPark Center. Featuring 1,800 feet of track, toy locomotives “travel from the autumn foliage of New England to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, with stops along the way to see New York City, Washington D.C., our beautiful city of Dallas and the desert Southwest, including the Grand Canyon and the Garden of the Gods,” organizers say. (You might even spot “interplanetary visitors from outer space,” they add.) More than 70,000 visitors are expected to view the elaborate display, which has raised more than $13 million for Ronald McDonald House of Dallas since 1987.
The display is on view on Level Two between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's from Nov. 17-Jan. 6, 2019 (except on Thanksgiving and Christmas; closing at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, 6 p.m. on New Year's Day). Tickets are $7 for adults, $4 for children and seniors.
