7 Austin Holiday Must Do’s for 2019

During the month of December, Austin is filled with holiday traidtions and festivities. We’ve put together a list of the 7 must do’s this holiday season in Austin.

1. Zilker Tree

The Zilker Tree is one of our favorite Austin holiday traditions. The Zilker Tree is 155 feet tall, composed of over 3,000 lights, and built upon one of Austin’s 17 historic moontowers.

It’s a local favorite to spin under the tree while looking up – the helix patterned lights create a festive animated effect. The tree is located across the street from the Tail of Lights. You can go to the trail of lights and the Zilker Tree in one trip, or break them up into separate trips.
