Texas Christmas Holiday Celebrations
There is much to see and do in Texas during the holiday season. Each year, I try to highlight a new way to enjoy the holidays, with an eye to gas prices and other costs. So, jump in your RV or car and get ready to see the beauty of Texas during the Christmas Season.
The Texas Hill Country Regional Christmas Lighting Trail
Every year, the citizens of towns and villages in the Texas Hill Country spring into action. These elves spends days, if not weeks, preparing festivities for visitors. From the map, it may look like you could drive the trail in one day. Please do not try it. The roads are not divided highways and many run through the center of towns. Below is a map of the trail with possible day trips delineated by green boxes.
