San Antonio is home to many lively and merry activities that will help you stay active and help your loved ones bask in some holiday magic! Here is a list of some of our favorite San Antonio winter activities:
Clark Griswold has nothing on the Holiday Lights on the River Walk! The glimmer and joy of the Holiday Lights are from November 23 – January 6 where visitors can be mesmerized by the beauty of over 100,000 lights draped over the bald cypress trees that line the River Walk. The famous display can be enjoyed from dusk ‘til dawn as the sights and sounds will surely bring Christmas cheer!
Santa’s reindeer aren’t the only ones feeling extra jolly this time of year! The animals are joining in on the fun by sharing Zoo Lights at the San Antonio Zoo! This event is open daily from November 17 – December 31. Activities include viewing the twinkling lights, sipping hot cocoa, roasting s’mores, riding camels, and a Lakeside Lightshow.
All aboard! For 18 years, San Antonio families have been enjoying Santa’s Railroad Wonderland. Christmas activities include nighttime train rides through 40 acres of holiday decorations and the opportunity to whisper your Christmas wish to the man of the season, Santa Claus. Your golden opportunities to climb onboard are Dec. 8-9, 15-16 or 22-23.
A San Antonio holiday wouldn’t be complete without ringing in the New Year with San Antonio’s downtown celebration. Choose from a variety of festivities including live music on three stages, carnival games, and fireworks. It’s a great way to close out the holiday season and celebrate the upcoming year ahead! Admission is free and the event begins at 1:00 p.m. on December 31.
