San Antonio’s famed River Walk is especially gorgeous during the temperate holidays, when the river is lined with Christmas lights and the highs are in the mid-60s. Guests will be wowed by the two million-plus lights at the San Antonio Zoo and the 9 million lights at SeaWorld, while other events include the Ford Holiday River Parade, Holidays in Bloom at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, El Merkadito Puro Feliz Navidad on Historic Market Square, authentic tamale making at the annual La Gran Tamalada, a Hanukkah boat parade, and arts and crafts at the German-inspired Kristkindlmarkt.
WHERE TO SAY: Family-friendly La Cantera Resort & Spa is brightly festooned with lights and decor all season. Guests will enjoy gingerbread decorating parties, a tree lighting ceremony, a reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas (led by the Grinch!), and a Christmas buffet.
