Deck the Hall Street
One of my favorite Christmas murals (and transformations) in Dallas! Fiction Coffee Shop on the corner of Ross and Hall transforms into a winter wonderland kicking off November 24th. Enjoy cozy Christmas cocktails or a bright, cheerful mural outside, both make for great Instagramable Christmas photos spots in DFW.

The Adolphus Hotel in Downtown Dallas
It’s no secret that The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas is one of the most gorgeous spots in the area… but did you know they also have the best decorations for Christmas? The tree makes for a great photo backdrop- but don’t forget to head up to the pool deck where you’ll find snow globes and a gorgeous view of Dallas. Christmas photo opps galore!
The Adolphus is located at 1321 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75202.
If this sparks your interest, here are some other festive hotels in DFW to check out.
Sundance Square in Fort Worth
If you live in Fort Worth there are lots of fun places to get in the spirit (even on TCU’s campus!), but my favorite is Sundance Square. There is a huge, gorgeous Christmas tree in the middle and lights everywhere you look. PS- Santa Claus can usually be found right in front of the tree. What says Instagramable Christmas photo spots in DFW like a photo with Santa in front of a 50 foot tree?
Sundance Square is located at 201 Main St, Fort Worth, TX 76102
Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal Sign in Bishop Arts District
A cult classic, if you will, of holiday photo ops in DFW. You must stop by and get your photo in front of the Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal sign in Bishop Arts.
This sign is located at 407 N Bishop Ave, Dallas, TX 75208
Museum of Memories in Dallas
If it gets too cold to go outside, I suggest stopping by Museum of Memories in Dallas for your photo needs! Instagramable pop ups very trendy, now add in some festiveness and you’ve hit the freakin’ Instagram jackpot!
Museum of Memories is located at 4428 Main St Suite 200, Dallas, TX 75226.
Christmas Pop Up Bars
First things first, these bars are going to be busy during the holidays. Everyone loves a good Christmas pop up, and these spots are no exception. I suggest going early in the day and/or early in the season if you’re wanting to somewhat avoid large crowds.
It might be a bit cliche, but the Dallas Galleria has the most gorgeous Christmas tree in the middle of a skating rink. I think it makes for a great day of shopping, dining– and photo taking! Whether you take the photo on the ice skating rink, or you’re like me and like the ice for a backdrop and not something to stand on, both photos will turn out great!
Dallas Galleria is located at 13350 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75240.
Campo Verde in Arlington
Okay, full disclosure, I have not been here yet… But every photo I have ever seen of Campo Verde in Arlington has me feeling festive! This might be the most festive photo spot in DFW to get the perfect Christmas photo for the gram. They stay decorated from October-April!
Campo Verde is located at 2918 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington, TX 76013.
North Pole Express in Grapevine
All aboard! Next stop, the Christmas Capital of Texas: Grapevine! There are plenty of great photo ops in Grapevine, but one of the most unique ones is the North Pole Express.
North Pole Express is located at 705 S. Main St. Grapevine, TX 76051.
Ruibals Farmers Market
I’ve talked about Ruibals every season, but it’s for a good reason! As fall leaves and Christmas approaches, Ruibals turns into one of my all time favorite Christmas photo ops in DFW. The vibrant colors of the trees mixed with the downtown Dallas buildings… it’s hard to beat!
Located at 601 S Pearl Expy, Dallas, TX 75201.
The Star in Frisco
You’ve probably been to The Star in Frisco by now, or at least heard of it, right? Well they take Christmas very seriously up in Frisco! The Star transforms into a spectacular holiday hot spot on November 22nd. The photos you can take with the Cowboys Star and a big star on top of a Christmas tree, priceless!

Shops at Willow Bend
Get in the spirit in Plano with the animated tree, front and center at The District at Willow Bend.

Not to mention you can hang out with Santa (even with your pets if you go Dec 2-6!) before grabbing a bit to eat at one of the tasty restaurants at The District.
