Houston For the Holidays: An Ultimate Guide to Winter Festivities

We made it to another holiday season and I am THRILLED. I absolutely love Houston during the holidays — a full month of Christmas lights, hot drinks, and spending time with friends and family. Of course, we might not get the winter wonderland weather, but there is SO stinking much to do. I’m overwhelmed just thinking about it!

Hopefully this helps you navigate the holiday season!

Get lit.

Why not start with one of my absolute fave things about the holidays — Christmas Lights!!! I mean, the one silver lining to the sun going down before you even wrap up your workday is that it’s even more time to check out some lights!

See a show.

There are some incredible shows through December — some holiday themed and some not!

Ice, ice baby.

Nothing more festive than a spin around an ice rink! Here are some spots to check out.

Attend a festive event.

There’s tons going on, but here are a few festive events to put on your calendar.

Cheers to Christmas.

Oh my gosh I LOVE a holiday bar and am so thankful there’s a slew of festive pop-up bars this year! Make sure to make your reservations in advance!

Destination: Downtown Houston.

If there was one part of Houston to fully commit to doing a bunch of festive opportunities, it’s downtown! There’s literally so much to do — and a lot that I’ve mentioned already. But I’m going to remind ya and add some other must-dos in DTHTX!
