Holiday Lights Illuminate the Texas Countryside in Texas

If you are hoping to view Christmas lights during your visit to Texas, you are in luck. There are several holiday light festivals and trails across the Lone Star State during the month of December.

In Cleburne, the Whistle Stop Christmas Lights wow visitors on an annual basis. The main draw for this county-wide event is the 11 acres of Christmas lights covering Hulen Park. However, Whistle Stop Christmas also offers train rides, fire truck rides and hayrides, as well as dancers, bands, sing-a-longs and nativity scenes at three different locations throughout Johnson County.

The Texas Hill Country communities of Boerne, Burnet, Dripping Springs, Fredericksburg, Goldwaite, Johnson City, Llano, Marble Falls, New Braunfels, Round Mountain and Wimberley are all part of the Hill Country Regional Lighting Trail. Each of these towns offer visitors dazzling light displays among the rolling hills of Central Texas. Some towns also have events separate from the Hill Country Regional Lighting Trail, such as Wimberley’s Emily Ann Tree Lighting and Trail of Lights and New Braunfel’s Santa’s Ranch, which is a full drive-through Christmas Light Park, with over 1 million lights.

College Station’s Santa’s Wonderland features 2.5 million lights spread across 40 acres. On Texas’ northern border, the Texarkana Twice as Bright Festival of Lights offers horse and carriage rides, as well as live reindeer to go with an impressive display of lights.

Probably the most famous Texas light trail, Jefferson’s Holiday Trail of Lights features an enchanted forest, life-size gingerbread house, candlelight tour of homes and more – not to mention plenty of lights.

These are just a few of the many impressive light trails flickering across Texas this holiday season. So, if you happen to be in the Lone Star State during December, don’t miss a chance to be warmed by the glow of these holiday lights.
