‘Tis the Season for Holiday Family Fun

San Antonio shines bright during the holiday season. Make plans to experience the city at its finest, adorned with twinkling lights and jam packed with festive food, shopping, and cultural events, for a holiday experience that is second to none. Plan your getaway today, and don’t forget the hot cocoa.

  • Begin your holiday adventure in the heart of downtown. Visit the all-new Rotary Ice Rink and the Christmas tree at Travis Park, across from the historic St. Anthony Hotel or take in the shining display of lights on Houston Street.
  • Or, see the sights by boat. Jump aboard a Go Rio River Cruise for holiday-themed, narrated tours of the Museum Reach and Downtown Reach sections of the River Walk. More than 100,000 lights line the trees on the river this time of year. And, ask about seasonal caroling cruises, too.
  • Browse the sights of more than 9 million lights – the largest Christmas light display in Texas – at SeaWorld San Antonio’s Christmas Celebration. Enjoy Christmas-themed shows, holiday light displays, festive foods, and a visit with Santa Claus.
  • Experience holiday cheer in the great outdoors at Natural Bridge’s Christmas at the Caverns. Listen to your favorite Christmas carols echo through the caverns; or, help Santa find his reindeer in an outdoor maze. And, don’t forget to take a hayride through the hills and s’mores at the finish line.
  • Make lasting memories at Six Flags Fiesta Texas Holiday in the Park. A winter wonderland theme takes over the park, complete with theme rides, family photo opps, visits with Santa, interactive, holiday-themed shows, and Christmas shopping booths.
  • For a wild time, get merry and bright with Zoo Lights at San Antonio Zoo. Experience twinkling lights while enjoying hot cocoa and exploring exhibits. Don’t miss the Lakeside Lightshow to top off your evening with dancing lights, music and loads of fun!
  • Take your lights search north to Windcrest, where the holiday decor is next level or explore the holiday wonderland at the University of the Incarnate Word’s campus. Head west for Elf Acres and enjoy 15-acres of lights, hayrides and treats.
