We can now say we are officially in the holiday season. The weather outside is getting colder, department stores have the same three songs on repeat, and you have random family members coming to your home. If you are looking for something to do with your family to get into a festive mood, holiday light trails could be just what the doctor ordered. There is something magical about looking at beautiful lights around Christmastime. We have put together a list of seven holiday light trails located in the Texas hill country.
1. San Saba Christmas ParkWe begin this list by showing off one of the largest light trails in the hill country: San Saba Christmas Park offers over thirty acres of lights, ponds, and trees. If you love holiday lights but hate the cold that comes with it, San Saba Christmas Park has you covered with the entire park being drivable. Starting December 14th, San Saba Christmas Park will begin to offer events and programs for the whole family. Take a leisurely stroll with your favorite glass of wine with the Sip & Stroll tour. For $30 a person, you will receive a souvenir wine glass, tote bag, and ten tasting pours. Festive carolers will perform your favorite holiday classics in the main square of the park. Also, on December 14th, a Christmas Parade will take place in the main square of the park.
The Old West Christmas Lightfest is offering much more than a light trail this holiday season. Take part in a Christmas themed escape room, or learn with your kids the art of cookie decorating with classes held nightly. If all of that is not enough for you, then maybe a game of laser tag on the Old West streets will get you in the holiday mood. The Old West Christmas Light Fest is not a free event. Tickets for entry are $15 for adults, $10 for children, and military and first responders can take advantage of a $10 ticket price. Escape room tickets will be $35, and laser tag games are $5.21.
