No other state favors “big” like Texas, and holiday celebrations are no exception. Get into the holiday spirit by planning a getaway to a top Texas city.
USA Today names the following cities as fun Texas places for the holidays.
Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest city in the nation. From Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to the Nutcracker by the Houston Ballet, the lineup of holiday performances, festivals, concerts and other activities is extensive.
You don’t want to miss the Festival of Lights, which is the Gulf Coast’s largest holiday lighting event with more than a million lights and 100 sound animated displays over Galveston Bay.
The holiday season begins the day after Thanksgiving with the river walk parade where millions of decorative lights dazzle onlookers. During the Ford Fiesta de las Luminaries, more than 6,000 glowing candles in sand-filled bags dot the river walkways. The Tamales Holiday Festival at Pearl and the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza are other holiday traditions unique to San Antonio.
The Austin Trail of Lights attracts more than 425,000 people every year with its Christmas lights, sculpture arrangements, photos with Santa and live music. Another holiday tradition is the Sing-Along and Downtown stroll where Christmas carolers lead everyone to the Capitol building for the lighting of the Texas Capitol Christmas tree.
Some favorite Dallas Christmas festivities include the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. In November, you can visit the gigantic pumpkin patch with life-sized pumpkin houses. Then in December, you cans see the 12 Days of Christmas exhibit. Kids also love to visit the North Pole Express train in Grapevine and visit Santa Claus.
