Just a 30-minute drive from downtown Austin is Elgin, home to one of the best Christmas tree farms in the area! Grab your family and head out to pick your annual Christmas tree, enjoy the petting zoo and sip on hot cocoa. The Elgin Christmas Tree Farm is open for sales beginning November 23.

Distance: 215 miles
While Galveston is a bit too far for a day trip, it does make for a great holiday weekend getaway! Experience the 45th annual Dickens on the Strand, ice skating at Moody Gardens, dazzling downtown lanterns and light display and more.

Distance: 211 miles
Grapevine, known as the official Christmas Capital of Texas, is always a great destination for a weekend of family holiday fun! What can you enjoy while there? Plan to go to “Ice! At Gaylord Texan” for an impressive display of life-sized ice sculptures/slides and downtown’s historic Palace Arts Center Theater for a Christmas movie or holiday concert. Click here for a look at the schedule. What else can you do around Grapevine? Visit the city website.

A little closer to home you’ll find Gruene, a charming town during the holidays. Take a day trip and spend the day shopping at the Gruene Christmas Market, join in on the 26th annual Jingle Bell Run on December 8th or simply head to Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, for a drink and some great music.
