The holidays are officially here and that means all of your family is coming to town. They’ll ask you if there are any fun things to do in Austin that the whole family could do. You don’t want to be stuck on your phone, frantically searching the internet for something to do that everyone in your family will enjoy. We here at Caliterra want you to be prepared for that big question, so here are 5 Austin, Texas attractions and Austin events going on in December.
1.Holidays at the Domain
At the Domain Austin Mall there are a lot of fun activities from the whole family. You can take pictures with Santa, ride horse-drawn carriages, watch holiday light shows, listen to carolers and have breakfast with Santa. Check out this great South Austin, Texas attraction.
2.Ice Skating on the Plaza of Whole Foods
Does your family enjoy ice skating? Maybe you want to try it for the first time. Well, now you can strap on some skates and give it a whirl! The North Lamar Whole Foods has a rooftop ice rink. This is definitely one of the coolest things to do in Austin during the holidays.
3.Lights of Love 5K
This year marks the 8th year of one of the most charitable Austin events during this season of giving. The Lights of Love 5K and Family Fun Run is an annual charity event that’s sponsored by Austin Area McDonalds and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. You and your family can get involved and help kick off this holiday season with the spirit of community.
4.Holiday Sing-Along and Downtown Stroll
Join hundreds of Austinites while they sing carols in front of the Capitol as the tree is lit. Then go on a nice walk down Congress Avenue to enjoy live music, shopping, art and all the other great Austin, Texas attractions that downtown has to offer.
5.Trail of Lights
No list of things to do in Austin would be complete without this last Austin, Texas Attraction. The Austin Trail of Lights in Zilker Park is a celebration of community, memories and fun. The tree is lit with a beautiful array of lights after the 5K Fun Run. You can take the whole family to go and relish in the glow of thousands of colorful lights.
