While we love a free holiday event as much as the next person, there are some festive activities that add seasonal pizazz precisely because they are a little more extravagant. Whether you're in the mood to dress up for an afternoon holiday tea, or take in a Nutcracker performance, or road trip to the Christmas Capital of Texas to stay at the Gaylord Texan or Great Wolf Lodge, we've found some of the best splurge-worthy holiday and Christmas activities for you and your family this season. 

For even more holiday and Christmas activities and events, be sure to check out our event calendar and our holiday and Christmas event guide. We also have an entire guide dedicated to Christmas activities and holiday fun so you can bring the magic of the season into your home with ease.
