Enjoy the Season with local Hill Country Texans
Fredericksburg offers a sea of antiques, gift shops, art galleries, restaurants, and coffee shops in historic architecture all set in an ocean of shimmering holiday decorations. Many locals think Christmas is the best time of the year and you’ll see them strolling through the quaint historic district along with you. It’s also a great time to enjoy some of the many local events that make Fredericksburg a wonderful destination for celebrating the season.
The Regional Christmas Lighting Trail is a uniquely Texan Christmas Experience
There are 12 charming Texas Hill Country towns that have been gloriously decorated to their finest:
|• Bandera,||• Johnson City,|
|• Blanco,||• Kerrville,|
|• Boerne,||• Llano,|
|• Burnet,||• Marble Falls,|
|• Dripping Springs,||• New Braunfels,|
|• Fredericksburg,||• Wimberley|
Each of these wonderful Texas Hill Country towns has decorated their courthouse and main public square or park in a unique but traditional way.
You would never see this special Texan Christmas style anywhere else in the world. Even for Texas it’s big and unique. Come see the “bigger in Texas” night sky filled with visions such as:
• The Blanco County Courthouse in Johnson City boasts over 100,000 lights
• At Lake Marble falls you can see over one million tiny, tinkling lights reflecting on the sparkling waters. Their cheerful twinkle covers 130 sculptures on the lake shores.
Shouldn’t Christmas be one big photo opportunity?
Traveling these towns is the perfect backdrop for your Christmas poses and Santa hats. Whether you’re a Texan yourself or coming from a distant place, the Texas Hill Country Regional Christmas Lighting Trail is a visual delight.
Bring your camera as you’ll surely want to take lots of photos with your family and friends in front of all the beautiful Christmas displays. If this doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, nothing will!
