Every good tour of lights includes a towering tree or two. At least once a year we'll hop out of the car for a look at the tree at the Galleria Dallas. At 95 feet, it has the distinction of being the world's tallest indoor Christmas tree. It's majestic from any angle, but even more so viewed while skating around on the mall's signature ice rink.
Klyde Warren Park
Downtown's Klyde Warren Park makes a statement with a brilliant tree adorned in multicolored lights and topped with a massive starburst. Oversized trees need oversized décor, and a few blocks south of the park the Omni Dallas Hotel features a display of several lacquered red ball ornaments. At 10 feet in diameter and 1,200 pounds apiece, they're placed on the hotel's lawn every year by a crane.
