If there is one thing about Texas that you can count on, it is the many things to see and do around the holidays. Whether you have family traveling to visit and you want something different to do, or you are looking to do a little traveling yourself, here are some of the best places to visit in Texas during the holidays. 


The holiday season feels a little more magical in Grapevine, Texas. During November, December, and January, you can expect to enjoy over thousand-holiday events and millions of Christmas lights. Ride the North Pole Express train, enjoy the parades, or snuggle up for holiday film favorites. The 100-foot Christmas tree at Gaylord Texan Resort will also help you remember why this time of year is so incredible. 

Next on the list of things to do in Texas for the holidays is the sparkling town of Fredericksburg, Texas. A popular destination for wine-lovers, you will feel as if you have been transported to the North Pole for Christmas fun. Enjoy the market days for Christmas shopping, partake in the festivities during the Chamber’s Light the Night Christmas Parade, or stop by for pictures with Santa at the AfterGlow at Marktplatz.

Remember the Riverwalk festivities in San Antonio for holiday fun in Texas. Stroll through this popular area for lighted trees and Santa in the gondolas or hang around for one of the many holiday festivals planned along the Riverwalk, including the famous Tamales! Holiday Festival.

For the history buffs in your life, Jefferson, Texas, is the place to be for the holidays in Texas. Led by candlelight, you can tour the oldest homes in town, and all decked out for the season. Known as the Holiday Trail of Lights, visitors enjoy taking a walk through history. There is also a Christmas Train, Enchanted Forest, or the festive Christmas parade. 

Believe it or not, College Station is more than a town full of Aggies. It is also a popular holiday destination in Texas for those seeking the magic of Christmas. Plenty of holiday parades and concerts take place here each year, but there is another reason so many travels to partake in the area’s events. Santa’s Wonderland is a little holiday village complete with snow, Santa, hayrides, live music, and more.
