Stunning Lights on the Speedway in Fort Worth
When most people think of a racetrack, they think of NASCAR, of super-fast cars rushing down a road of concrete, desperately fighting for first while trying to avoid causing a ten-car collision that stalls racers for hours. However, you may be surprised to hear that a raceway can be a popular holiday attraction, and here at Alexan Summit, our luxury apartments give you the opportunity to experience it for yourself this year with stunning lights.
From November 28th to January 5th, the Texas Motor Speedway will host its annual Gift of Lights drive-thru tour; it’s a perfect low-key activity for all families to enjoy, and it’s host to over two million lights. The drive itself takes you through the bulk of the speedway, where you can witness many spectacular light arrangements, ranging from classic Christmas icons to even homages to Hanukkah and other yuletide celebrations. At the end of the path, families can park and visit Santa’s Village, which features several fun activities such as photo ops with Santa Claus himself, refreshing beverages like hot chocolate, and outdoor ice skating. You can even ride a toy train through the village and revisit some of the attraction’s loveliest displays. Best of all, pets are encouraged to attend, so long as they remain on a leash. Tickets can be purchased in advance per vehicle or at the door, though be sure to grab them early as the popularity of the light show can cause lengthy waiting lines.
Enjoy brilliant splendor right from home at Alexan Summit. Tour our delightful luxury apartments in Fort Worth and the Gift of Lights this holiday season.
