4 Fun Holiday Activities in Houston

1. Zoo Lights

Jump in your rental and head on over to the Houston Zoo for the tenth annual Zoo Lights spectacular presented by TXU Energy. This year, you can take in all the sights and lights and snag a selfie in front of the new 33-foot tall color-changing holiday tree. Or you and the kids can get a kick out of seeing snow in Texas with the Winter Wonderland exhibit presented by Houston Methodist. So plan ahead and grab your tickets early.

2. Mountain Green Energy Ice

If you’re looking for something unique and magical, glide beneath the glittering lights of downtown Houston on the Mountain Green Energy Ice at Discovery Green. Running daily through January 30, 2022, this ice skating rink is open to the public. All proceeds go to the Discovery Green Conservancy, which provides funds for park maintenance and other fun, free events throughout the year. 

3. Home for the Holidays

Just north of Houston, you’ll find a quaint little town called Old Town Spring. This year marks the 41st-annual Home for the Holidays celebration, in which the entire town participates. So you and the whole family can enjoy some hot chocolate while strolling through all the town’s charming shops. There’s even a chance to snap your picture with Santa every weekend until Christmas. 

4. Breakfast with Santa

Starting December 11, 2021, you and Santa can enjoy a hearty breakfast buffet at the Downtown Aquarium and Kemah Aquarium. Both locations offer a delicious meal with all of Santa’s favorites, and a photo op either with Santa or the aquariums’ mascot, Sharkey. Keep your eyes peeled, though, because you just might see Santa swimming with the fish. Breakfasts will be held on December 11, 12, 18, 19, 22, 23, & 24.
