  • 37th Street Christmas Lights -  just north of the University of Texas, this street is famous for its lights and community spirit. Here, virtually everyone on the block puts up lights, and most put up THOUSANDS. Neighbors string lights between houses and across the street creating a canopy of lights that covers ths sky.
  • Zilker Holiday TreeThis 155 foot tall tree is composed of 39 streamers, each holding 81 multicolored 25 watt bulbs, totaling 3,309 lights is certainly fun to see.  The Zilker Tree is will be lit from 6 pm- midnight December 4th- December 31st.
  • Luminations at The Wildflower CenterThe best free celebration in town. We invite you to enjoy gardens lighted with more than 3,000 luminarias and 5,000 twinkle lights and to listen to music of the season. Admission is free with two canned food items for the Capital Area Food Bank.

    The City of Lakeway in Travis County has a really lovely display at their town hall as well.

    There is a neighborhood block off Sunchase in Cedar Park (near HS) that’s goes all out. Every house on this block takes part & each one does 1 day of the 12 days of Christmas. Amazing!! Reminds of of Chevy Chase house on Christmas. :)

    There is a street off Brodie right near the entrance to Shady Hollow that goes all out. Also a street off Convict Hill across from the library.

    Llano is even having a “snow day” this Saturday at Badu park.

  • It would sure be helpful if someone could tell the readers which displays are handicap accessible and how, e.g. car, walker, wheelchair. I love holiday lights, but I have braces and no wheelchair. Someone should do a list of the neighborhoods where people can drive through and take the grandparents–or me. :)

    Penny the street off of Sunchase in Cedar Park is drive thru. A lot of people also park & walk around the block using sidewalk.

    Does anyone know where the angry birds themed house is located in Austin? I saw it on head line news & is also on You Tube but no address.

    Any reason BLORA Christmas Light Trail is not on the list. One of the best drive through light displays in Texas.

  • DG

    The Wildflower Center is closed through Jan 2.
