Christmas In Texas

October 25, 2022

Where are some unique Christmas lights in Texas?

Christmas lights seem to glow with magic and it is no wonder we think every display are some of the best Christmas lights in Texas. But while everyone has their favorites, we have also found some Christmas lights in Texas that are truly unique. In Southwest Austin, every Harry Potter fan’s Christmas dreams can come true with a visit to the drive-thru Harry Potter Yule Ball. At Enchant in Dallas, visitors can actually ice skate along a trail of Christmas lights. It’s absolutely amazing. If you would rather keep your feet on less slippery ground, make a visit to the San Antonio Botanical Garden and stroll through a tunnel of over 100,000 lights.

Are there any Christmas trains in Texas?

The short answer to this is yes! One of the most magical holiday experiences for kids of all ages is a ride on a Christmas train. Here in Texas, there are several to choose from and all will make you eager to climb aboard! Along the Cyprus Bayou River is the Jefferson Railway, an antique open-air locomotive that will take riders past countless Christmas lights and displays. Austin Steam Train’s North Pole Flyer is another option for a holiday journey, complete with a visit to see Santa. Dewberry Farm in Brookshire transforms into a winter wonderland in Texas every year for the Christmas season. While some may call it more of a wagon ride than a train ride, you’ll still get a unique ride to see millions of twinkling lights.
