The holiday season is a special time for Austin, Texas. We really get into the spirit here, from the fun seasonal events to the gorgeous scenery to the twinkling Christmas lights that turn the city into a holiday postcard dreamscape. For Christmas in Austin this year we have some exciting events we’re looking forward to, so make sure to save them on your calendar!

Christmas in Austin Morning & Day

Wake up in comfort in your cozy rental home and enjoy a slow morning in your lovingly decorated living room as you open presents together. Then you can grab a hot cup of joe at Bennu Coffee, which will be open 24-hours through the holidays.

Have a quiet day with your loved ones at Zilker Metropolitan Park. Through the 23rd you’ll find the Trail of Lights Event here, so make sure to visit before the 25th! On Christmas Day, this park makes for a quiet and serene escape into nature. Here you’ll find Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Botanical Gardens, five volleyball courts, three picnic sites, Zilker Playscape, and more.

Options for Christmas lunch include fine eateries such as Cannon and Belle, Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum, and 24 Diner (which is open 24 hours on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day).

Christmas Evening

Visit the downtown area for some awesome sights, twinkling lights, and a fun evening on the town. Grab a seasonal cocktail to spice things up! Plan to have your Christmas in Austin dinner at Caroline, one of our favorite establishments in town. At Caroline they’ll be serving up tasty holiday specials all the way until midnight on Christmas, including seasonal delicacies like fried duck leg, peppermint cocktails, and the delicious naughty & nice cake.

Visit Lady Bird Lake at sunset for a magical end to the day as the light hits the water. It’s a great place to go walking, and you can even paddle out on the water! After all the excitement of the day, you’ll be happy to end up back in the comfort of your rental home where you can all unwind and relax with some hot cocoa and holiday dessert by the fireplace.
