Some of my All-Time Favorites:

Zilker Park Trail of Lights-

The Trail of Lights is one of the most anticipated events here in the Austin area. Zilker Park is laced with beautiful Christmas lights and displays. It is one of my favorite holiday traditions. This is a great event to go to with friends and family of all ages. My favorite part is the Holiday Tree at the end of the Trail of Lights. The Zilker Tree stands 155 feet tall and has a total of 3,309 lights.  The diameter is 120 feet.

Evergreen Tree Farm (Elgin, Texas):

Every year on Black Friday, my family goes to Evergreen Tree Farm in Elgin (About 20 minutes Southeast of Austin). This is a small family run business and if you are looking for something other than a store bought Christmas tree, this is the place to go! They are very friendly there and you have the option to cut down your own tree on their land or they have some precut trees to choose from as well. They have fun family activities, such as, a hayride around the farm and feeding the various animals on their farm. Definitely worth a drive out there to check it out!
