10 Reasons to Spend Christmas in Texas

It might not be the whitest Christmas you’ll ever experience, but a holiday in the Lonestar State is one you’ll never forget.

1. Grapevine, the Christmas Capital of Texas, is an amazing place for an adult holiday getaway, with Christmas Wine Trains running each week. Sample local wine and hors d’oeuvres and enjoy a festive atmosphere aboard the train.

2. The Dickens-themed festival in Boerne features a “one man Christmas Carol” show that must be seen, as well as multiple parades and lots of fun for little ones.

3. Dallas offers the best that Texas and Christmas have to offer in one fell swoop. Enjoy the unique Christmas tree maze and horse-drawn carriage rides for a taste of classic Christmas.

4. The average December temperature in our capital city is 63 degrees Farenheit. If the cold weather’s enough to make you want to hibernate, that’s enough reason right there.

5. The Texas State Parks, a treat any time of the year, are getting into the holiday spirit. Read more here.

6. Enjoy a homestyle Christmas in Brenham, one of Texas’s famous small towns. Brenham is full of fun activities like Nuncrackers the musical, an old-time tour of “Christmas at Winedale”, and more. Make your stay homey by staying at Murski Homestead, where you can indulge in comfort food at one of their Texas cooking classes.

7. Speaking of comfort food… did we mention that Texas barbecue is the perfect holiday dinner?

8. Galveston Island has one of the most dazzling festivals of lights on the planet.

9. You can ice skate with a background of live music or fireworks in Houston… talk about a great date night! More than one couple has gotten engaged on the ice of Discovery Green.

10.  Everything is bigger in Texas, including the celebration!
