Looking at the calendar and wondering what you can still fit in this holiday season? There are plenty of San Antonio holiday lights and activities you can still enjoy. Get out and see why so many people consider a visit to the Alamo City a must during the holidays.
San Antonio holiday lights and fun you can still enjoy this season include:
Windcrest Light Up: Through December 31, put the kids in their jammies, load up the car, and delight in Windcrest Light Up. The best way to enjoy it is to grab a map at 8601 Midcrown Dr. and then make sure to see this year’s award winners.
Alamo Lights: Alamo Lights allows you to walk the beautiful Alamo grounds, decorated with festive lights throughout that illuminate the gardens and larger-than-life light-decorated figures of Alamo Defenders and a few other surprises. Open through January 2.
Skating Fun: The Rotary Ice Rink is in Travis Park through January 16. There’s something different to enjoy each night, with live ice sculpting on Mondays, movies on Tuesdays (and discounted tickets, so make it family night), live jazz on Wednesdays (date night), snow flurries on Thursdays, and food trucks on Fridays.
San Antonio’s Official Christmas Tree: Take great pictures with your family in front of the city’s official Christmas tree while you’re enjoying fun in Travis Park.
River Walk Lights: Roam the River Walk or take a boat tour of the lights that everyone loves on the river. The lights are on through dawn on January 9, so there’s plenty of time left to enjoy a Hallmark-movie-worthy scene with amazing lights in the Alamo City.
Museum Reach Lights: Go beyond the River Walk and explore the Museum Reach. The lights around the Pearl are beautiful and make a fantastic photo backdrop.
Lightscape: The San Antonio Botanical Garden has more than one million lights and festive artistic displays as “Lightscape” fills the garden. Set to joyful music, the outdoor illuminated one-mile walking trail showcases new installations and some favorites from last year. (The bluebonnet field is a must!) Available to enjoy on select evenings through January 8.
UIW Light the Way: Through January 6, you can drive through (or walk around) the lights at the University of the Incarnate Word. For maps and more information, visit here.
North Star Boots: Can you be a true San Antonian if you don’t take a picture in front of the world’s largest cowboy boots outfitted in Christmas lights? On nightly until early January, park, be careful around traffic, and get a picture with the boots.
SeaWorld Christmas: Check out millions of lights at SeaWorld’s annual celebration through January 2.
