The Christmas Lights Road Trip Through Texas That’s Nothing Short Of Magical
I’ve written about the best Christmas lights and towns to visit this season, but that was all talk. I thought it was time to put those words into action and see for ourselves what makes these places the best. 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.
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 directions can be found here. Happy Holidays!

Texas sure does know how to celebrate Christmas. Would you take this road trip? Are there any other amazing light displays you would add?
