Smiles and Lights Glow at the Amarillo Botanical Gardens
The Amarillo Botanical Gardens is a beautiful place in Amarillo. However, it turns into a magical place during the holidays with their Christmas in the Gardens.
I had to opportunity to take someone very close to me to the Amarillo Botanical Gardens' Christmas in the Garden for the very first time recently. I realized it doesn't matter how young or old you are, seeing the Gardens at Christmas is a magical experience. Just watching their face light up the minute they walk through the gate or the moment they see the amphitheater all lit up. Their first time walking into the tropical garden and seeing the star and the waterfall and hearing "oh my gosh they have ducks." It's a memorable moment. I even experience something new this year walking out the door of the Tropical Gardens and seeing it snow, even though it's till 50 degrees outside.
Oh, and when they saw Santa, the grin that fell across their face was priceless. It's a magical place and it is definitely Santa's Mini Wonderland.
It's a place full of wonderful photo opportunities, in front of the waterfall, in the Meditation Garden, the sitting tree covered in blue lights and who could forget the light tunnel. Oh, yeah, and Santa, you have to get your picture with Santa.
If it's been awhile since you have been to the Amarillo Botanical Gardens, don't forget to take your family especially those who have never been to Christmas in the Gardens to experience the magic of the holidays.
If you can't make it out this season, hopefully, you'll enjoy the pictures I took on our journey through Christmas in the Gardens.
