Christmas Light Displays

A Winter Wonderland

Our family loves to tour the neighborhoods during the Christmas season to look at the colorful lights displayed in the front yards. We spend several hours each December revisiting our favorite neighborhoods to see the glitter and glamor of the season.

One area of Austin is especially well lighted and well worth a trip through the neighborhood. The area is just west of Anderson Mill Road between Highway 183 and Highway 620. Spicewood Club Parkway is a main road through the area. The lights extend in every direction off of this main road.

Many years ago, this neighborhood began a tradition where each home planted a live decorated Christmas in their front yard, close to the curb. Looking down the street, the line of decorated trees was visible for blocks. It was quite impressive.

Of course, many other decorations have been added over the years. You will find some beautiful yard decorations in this area. The homes are beautiful and the lights are especially effective. It is possible to spend several hours touring these streets.

White Lights

Another important feature of these neighborhood decorations are the white lights. Several streets have dozens of the homes and yards outlined in white lights. If you turn the car headlights to low, it looks like a winter wonderland.

Other streets have picked a theme for their decorations. One cul-de-sac has a Christmas goose focus. Each home has placed wooden geese on their lawns and each tells a part of a story. See it for yourself!

Don't Miss It!

If you are unfamiliar with this area, I recommend that you take your GPS or map. It is dark in the hills and easy to lose your direction.

Most of the lights will be on until the New Year. Find time to see these spectacular Christmas decorations. You will be glad you didn't miss it!
