Drive-thru Christmas lights in Texas are a much beloved tradition, and one of the sweetest of all is Peppermint Parkway at Circuit of the Americas in Austin. With millions of twinkling lights, Santa and his reindeer, festive treats, and so much more, a visit to this winter wonderland will make your holiday season magical. The best Christmas light show in Texas is at Peppermint Parkway!

Texas has dozens of holiday light shows all over the state. Big or small, there’s most likely a holiday show near you that you need to check out this season! Beyond the Peppermint Parkway, we also love heading to Grapevine, which is dubbed the “Christmas Capital of Texas.” Enjoy their 1,400 Christmas events in 40 days while you soak in some of the best Christmas lights in Texas!
Another town that rivals Grapevine is the town of Marshall, Texas, which is going for the best Christmas town in Texas crown. Every year their Wonderland of Lights Festival lights up over one million holiday lights during the Christmas season. There’s also an outdoor skating rink, Santa in his village, and horse-drawn carriage rides!
