Celebrate a Hill Country Holiday Season

Nearby Towns Offer Unique and Charming Attractions

Traditions make the holidays special. Dripping Springs features a festive annual celebration on Mercer Street, and the spirit of the season is strong across the Hill Country. We’re fortunate to be a short drive from several attractions with histories of bringing families together.

Light Spectacular, Johnson City

25 miles from Dripping Springs

“The Twinkliest Town in Texas” features more than 2 million Christmas lights, a display so big, that NASA reported seeing it from space. Walk around the historic downtown and enjoy local food, beer, wine and festivities in a family-fun atmosphere.

Holiday lights glow from dusk to midnight, and don’t miss out on the amazing display at PEC headquarters.

44 Nights of Christmas, Marble Falls

47 miles

From ice skating and tree lighting to market shopping and cocoa sipping, there’s something for the whole family. It may take more than one trip to unwrap all the fun with destinations like the Walkway of Lights in Lakeside Park and events like the Christmas Market on Main.

The Walkway of Lights is open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every night. Pro tip: Weather can impact attractions, so check the website before heading out.

EmilyAnn's Trail of Lights, Wimberley 

15 miles

This walking trail curves through eight acres of lighted exhibits and runs most days in December. It’s free to attend, but donations are accepted and benefit the EmilyAnn Theatre. 

Enjoy complimentary marshmallows and hot chocolate while taking in live entertainment. Santa Claus visits most nights from the North Pole to greet everyone.
