When you live in such a fantastic city like Austin, it can be overwhelming to narrow down what to do. The holiday season brings even more fun events and activities to Austin. Getting overwhelmed? Don’t worry! Palm Harbor Homes has taken the guesswork out of what to do during Christmas in Austin. Here are a few jolly activities that you should add to your annual tradition list.

  1. Ride Along the Trail of Lights

2100 Barton Springs Rd.
December 7-21, 7p.m. to 10p.m.

Admission: $3.00

This Austin Christmas tradition of more than 50 years is one of the most impressive light displays in the nation. Enjoy over 1.25 miles of lights, displays, and Christmas decorations all through Zilker Park. Enjoy live music, food trailers, and other fun holiday activities that your family will remember forever.

  1. Decorate a Tree on Loop 360

An interesting tradition that many Austin residents have adopted during the holiday season is driving to the north section of Loop 360 before the intersection of 183 and decorating a random tree. Families drive up with ornaments, tinsel, and stars to decorate a tree located just off the freeway. This is a fun way to spread Christmas cheer with passing motorists.

  1. Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen or Food Pantry

Christmas is a season all about giving. Austin has several food kitchens and food pantries in the city that would be thrilled to have volunteers. Some of these include Angel House Soup Kitchen, Caritas, and The Storehouse. These organizations help Austin’s poor by providing much-needed food, resources, and support. Get in the holiday spirit and support these fantastic organizations!

  1. Skate at Whole Foods’ Ice Skating Rink

The Whole Foods’ skating rink on Lamar is about as close as you can get to real ice skating outside in Austin. Grab some lunch or dinner in Whole Foods and then head up to the rooftop to enjoy holiday music to put you right in the Christmas mood.
