It’s Time for Your Relatives to Visit (Here’s Your Go-To List for Austin’s Holiday Fun)

Be the hero of their trip this year by showing your out of town visitors a great time in Austin. Everyone has their go-to list of the top places to visit. Here’s one for you! 


The Mozart’s Christmas Light Show runs from November 10, 2022 thru January 6, 2023. Two million lights, music, food and now – Dancing! To make reservations visit This year Mozart’s will also premiere its Lit Up! LED Dance Floor located in the free viewing area of  the Bavarian Marketplace (adjacent parking lot.) Free Marketplace and Lit Up! LED Dance Floor reservations are available.

Tickets are going fast and some time periods may be already sold out. (Friday and Saturday nights’ Silent Disco tickets require a unique
reservation and payment to attend.)

Elsewhere in Northwest Austin, Mount Bonnell is the place to go for a gorgeous Texan sunset. For a great workout, climb up 90 or so stairs – or for easy access, drive just a bit further north of the stairs and walk the crest to view the sunset.

On December 3rd, our beloved State Capital lights a gigantic Christmas tree and KUT presides to host their sing-a-long.

All year long, Terra Toys, Austin’s largest toy store, encourages kids of all ages to play freely inside!

For the outdoorsy type, Barton Springs Pool remains a balmy 68 degrees. In the summer, that would be very cold. But in the winter it feels warm!

Sixth Street is Austin’s Bourbon Street. Bars and music fill every inch of this iconic area of our city. Most locals know - it’s best to visit earlier in the evening.

Laguna Gloria is one of Austin’s treasures. The Spanish Hacienda was built on Lake Austin and is the home to Austin’s Contemporary Art school, hosting a stellar display of outside sculptures.

Mozart’s is also open each day from 7am to midnight (except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day). To enjoy a relaxing daytime by Lake Austin in the heart of the city, take your guests to this jewel of a place for coffee and café delicacies.
