After a rather eventful year, the Holidays have finally arrived! The city lights up more than usual and people and on a merry scurry to celebrate with their loved ones throughout the entire city.
Whether you're looking for a pleasant time with contemporary adults, or are looking to delight your kids with some of the many events made with them in mind, you'll surely find something amazing to do during the coming days. Let's take a quick look at some of what's happening this season until New Year's Eve!
For the sixth time, the Houston Zoo will be transformed into a snowy paradise filled with more than two million lights and a great variety of attractions including the Holiday Train Village, an Enchanted Forest, an interactive talking zebra named Candy and even a walk-in snow globe!
The liveliest time of year comes to this beautiful corner of Houston with spectacular lights, presentations by local performers and unique gifts sold all around the boutiques that dot the area. Here, you can bring the whole family for a nice walk through its decorated paths, enjoy delicious hot chocolate and all the nice things you and your kids could expect from a perfect holiday season.
There's something just charming about taking a train through town. Located in Victory Camp, a short drive from Downtown the Christmas Trains takes passengers through a wonderful holiday experience unique to the city. This old fashion ride goes by beautiful scenery filled with lights and decorations. You can buy tickets for it online and take part in this amazing experience.
For a celebration that's closer to the heart of the city, you can go to the Discovery Green Park and take part in all the fun celebrations they will be hosting. An ice skating rink is already in place and featuring "Skating with Santa" events.
The classic play where Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. This is Alley Theatre Company's first play in its home stage since Hurricane Harvey, so it'll be an especially meaningful performance as they finally get to reopen and keep doing their amazing performance where they belong. Be sure not to miss it!
Many of the city's beautiful restaurants will be hosting New Year's Eve parties. On these, you are advised to make reservations. After you do, be prepared to enjoy delicious food, all kinds of exquisite drinks and an opportunity to end the year with a bang when the New Year's Eve Countdown begins!
All in all, December's celebrations are ready to go all over town and the holiday spirit shines brightly all throughout Houston. Wherever you decide to spend these beautiful days, this city is ready to lift your spirits and show you the beauty of life.
