How To Find The Best Christmas Small Town in Texas
I love San Angelo at Christmastime. The Parade of Lights along the Concho is truly magical. If you are looking for more, you are in luck. San Angelo is less than 150 miles from the best Christmas town in Texas.
Fredericksburg, Texas is incredible at Christmas. Fredericksburg is nationally recognized as one of the 16 best Christmas destinations in the nation. Sure, there are bigger light displays in Dallas or San Antonio. However, when it comes to small-town charm and the wonders of German culture, there is truly no better place to visit during the Christmas season, or "Weihnachtszeit" as the natives call it.
Fredericksburg is often compared to a holiday Hallmark movie. There is ice skating. They have an amazing 30-foot Christmas tree and the German Christmas pyramid.
The Christmas pyramid is truly unique. At 26 feet tall, the pyramid is alive with moving wooden figures and a spinning windmill.
There is also outdoor ice skating. This is rare in warm and toasty Central Texas. Eisbahn brings in the ice and keeps it groomed to perfection. They also provide traditional Christmas music to skate to.
Starting November 22nd, Fredericksburg's Christmas Nights of Lights takes place every evening at 6 pm in the marketplace. There is a ten-minute presentation featuring the story of the town's German heritage, holiday carols, and the magical countdown to the lighting.
Along with the sea of Christmas lights, Fredericksburg is at the heart of Texas Wine Country. There are plenty of opportunities for tastings and tours.
In Fredericksburg, if you love vintage, there are tons of markets with incredible antique and vintage items. Finding a unique holiday gift for someone who craves the extraordinary is no problem. Finding a big enough vehicle to bring the treasures you find there might be.
