We’ve written about the best Christmas lights and towns to visit during the holiday season in the past. But then we thought a Texas Christmas lights road trip would be a great idea. From strolling down the River Walk and admiring the vibrant lights to driving through neighborhoods ablaze with the Christmas spirit, this is the perfect winter vacation for the whole family this holiday season in Texas.

The entire trip is 686 miles, but you’ll want to spend the night in each separate city so you’ll be there when the lights are on. As usual, the Google Map with all the trip itinerary is here to guide (or light) the way. Happy Holidays!
