The Best Holiday Photo Spots in Dallas

It's here, it's here! The most wonderful time of the year has arrived in Dallas - the holiday season. Dallas has some amazing spots to take a picture (hello Deep Ellum), but once holiday season strikes, the whole city steps up their game. Photo ops are endless, and there are countless great places to pose for an awesome picture to get you in the holiday spirit. Today I'm teaming up with everyone's favorite, Target, to bring you the 10 most instagrammable spots to take a picture this holiday season in Dallas.

These places will not only be so fun to visit this Christmas but will also cause a major spike in Instagram likes, so beware! If you like lights, giant trees, and holiday fun, this post is for you. If not, I don't yet have a blog post for where to find Scrooge's most IG worthy spots. Supply and demand people, supply and demand.

Before we dive into these great locations that will kill it on IG, let's first talk a little coffee. No good photo hunting session ever started without a cup or two of java. Target this year (like every year) has everything you need to make your coffee as festive as your Instagram feed. I'm not going to lie, when I'm on the go, I am no stranger to a plain black cup of coffee. But the beauty of the holiday season is taking the time to slow down, spend more time with friends you don't see that often, and really savor every drop of the month of December. Alas, you have more time to festive up your normal, boring cup of Joe.

Target has so many options to make your coffee a bit sweeter this December. I picked up the 1850™ Brand Coffee Black Gold K-Cup® pods made with Arabica beans, and the Baileys® Irish Cream Coffee Creamer in their original Irish creamy, sophisticated flavor made with genuine Baileys ingredients. Don't worry, this is non-alcoholic, so you can start your day, potentially, with the same flavor you ended with the night before! LOLS!

If you've never thrown a little Baileys in your coffee, you're doing it wrong. 1850™ Brand Coffee is bold but incredibly smooth. When paired with the Baileys creamer, it feels like you're drinking a glass of creamy Christmas. It is just enough sweetness but not overpowering. I don't usually sweeten my coffee, so it's a nice added touch without too much sugar. It's a warm, bold cup of delight that will perk you up and get you on your merry way!

Target, per the usual, also has a massive selection of cute holiday mugs. I'm sure this comes as no surprise to anyone that Target is nailing the Christmas game.












Target has an available Cartwheel offer (via the Cartwheel app which you canoe found HERE) from 11/11 – 12/22 which will save you up to 20% on participating coffee and creamer!

So now that we have our coffee and creamer for the day, let's get to planning your holiday instagram feed, shall we?
