Texas is a wonderful place to spend the Christmas holidays. It’s warm, sunny (no need to bundle up and shovel the walkway), and festive. Cities such as Houston and Dallas have unparalleled shopping opportunities, while cities like San Antonio and Austin feature many holiday events.
Holiday lights along San Antonio's Riverwalk.
Watch Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer on stage at the Casa Mañana Theatre in Fort Worth, and visit a magical Christmas wonderland at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. See Santa Claus VS The Martians at the KD Studio in Dallas, or take in a more traditional holiday show with Kelly Willis and Bruce Robinson at Dallas’ Wyly Theatre.
There are Christmas celebrations at Sea World in San Antonio, a fabulous display of holiday lights along the Riverwalk, and 40′ tall Christmas trees in the parks. Guests of Austin TX Bed and Breakfasts may see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular at the Bass Concert Hall or the Nutcracker at the Michael and Susan Dell Hall on December 17, 2010; On December 20, The Company Theatre presents Bah Humbug!, a one-man adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
In Houston, one can Skate Under Falling Snow at the ice rink in the Galleria or listen to the Houston Symphony perform Handel’s Messiah (December 21 – 23, 2010). Guests of Fredericksburg TX Bed and Breakfasts may complete any last-minute holiday shopping at the Fredericksburg Trade Days at Sunday Farms (December 17-18), which features more than 300 vendors and everything from ranch furniture to jewelry and clothing.
