Once upon a time, in a land not too far away in Texas, there resides a place called Santa Land that's known for its brilliant light displays, themed areas and millions of lights that can be seen for miles through the East Texas piney woods of Lindale, Texas. It also happens to be home to country superstar Miranda Lambert. This drive-thru, Christmas park wonderland is the perfect place to take the family for holiday fun.Located just north of Tyler, I distinctly remember driving down I-20 West and seeing the bright illumination in the trees being given off by the glow of the lights in the park. As you enter the 24-acre park, you are surrounded by more than two million lights everywhere you drive.

The Tunnel of Lights features 25,000 flashing, dancing lights, and as you exit the 250-foot tunnel there are 12-foot tall toy soldiers saluting you. Several sections of this park have themed areas with lots of Christmas music coordinated with the displays to give you the ultimate holiday experience.
