‘Tis the season to go all out, so the Austin Motel is doing exactly that. Have a jolly time taking in the twinkly sights and spirit of their courtyard and pool. Wander amongst the trees, grab a drink (or two), and experience the Winter Wanderland now through December 26th. This year, they’ve amped up the cheer with festivities all weekend in addition to the wandering you can do all week long.

Photos with Hunky Santa. Every day is an abs day at the North Pole. Come take your picture with shredded Saint Nick and secure your spot on the nice list. Santa will be onsite and ready to snap pics from 6–8 p.m.

Carols with Mrs. Claus, brought to us by Cheeki Khant and other performers. Songs at the top of the hour at 6, 7, and 8 p.m.

Sunday–Wednesday: Wander the courtyard and enjoy the Neon Rainbow Experience!

Thursday–Sunday: they’ll open the pool to all and serve seasonal beverages—boozy and not—as well as popcorn and s’mores.

Enter under the neon rainbow carport next to the lobby. All ages are welcome and no reservation is needed. Entry is free with a suggested donation to CARY.

When: now through December 26th

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
