With the holiday season quickly approaching, families tend to overschedule their obligations, trying hard to meet up with loved ones and friends in advance of Christmas or New Year’s Day. Between cookie exchanges, wine nights, family gift giving, and catching up with co-workers, there’s little time to slow down and enjoy the holiday season by doing things that truly matter to you. There’s absolutely no excuse for missing out on a great pastime such as touring through the Texas Hill Country to check out the numerous Christmas light displays, so why not coordinate some family and friend time with a trip planned out just for the occasion?

Reconnect with family and friends over some fun in the Texas Hill Country, with reliable transportation, excellent holiday accommodations, perhaps some gift shopping, and of course, laughter. And hot chocolate—you mustn’t forget the hot chocolate! Time with your loved ones should be spent enjoying moments, not mayhem, and a trip away from the every-day allows for the type of rest and relaxation we all crave come Christmas time. In the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find beautiful natural scenery coupled with the epic lighting displays that local ranches and towns feature for Christmas.

There’s something satisfying about getting a group of family and friends together for a great time such as this, but planning a gathering isn’t always easy. We all know there’s generally one party planner among us who shoulders the burden of coordinating everything as well as doing all the driving for everyone! Rather than dulling the experience for them, have the family get together and be chauffeured to and from their destinations in the safety and comfort of a luxury coach! Plus, in the midst of the to-and-froms and where-to-nexts, your driver can steer you in the direction of great stops along the way: some hot spots for shopping deals, all the best Christmas light displays, and amazing Hill Country restaurants for your group’s dining pleasure.

While pre-planning this time away during the hustle and bustle of the season, you’ll want to consider great accommodations that can not only host your entire group but also offer moments of peace, comfort, and joy! Between the “ooooh”s and the “aaaah”s of viewing lighting displays and shopping, visiting, and laughing ’til you can’t handle it anymore, you’re going to need some shut-eye.

That being said, there are some spectacular options in and around Johnson City that will have your family and friends swooning! From bed and breakfast accommodations to quaint hotel stays, to hotels featuring a number of indulgences, this area has got your stay covered!

Imagine waking up refreshed at the Crossroads Inn in a comfortable bed, not having to rush off to your 9-to-5 with a lukewarm coffee and a cold piece of toast in hand. Instead, bring all the fixings for some s’mores and perhaps a doctored (read: liquored-up) hot chocolate and feel the anxiety of the season disappear. Desirable? Indeed. Unattainable? Not in the least! Then follow that up with a restful itinerary of almost nothing if you so desire, other than great family time, some excellent food, and then piling into your custom-planned coach transportation, headed off for a leisurely viewing of holiday lights beginning at dusk. It’s a holiday dream come true.

Having booked a great place to stay, there’s nothing holding you back from planning out the holiday light display itinerary. As previously noted, Johnson City is absolutely loaded with great options in the immediate vicinity. A Lone Star Christmas is one such feature that will have your friends and family in the Christmas spirit in no time! Featuring over 2 million LED lights, this drive-through light display showcases such highlights as a 35-foot-tall Mega Tree dancing to music, a 30-foot-long illuminated tunnel, and a variety of new and unique Texas-themed display pieces. Best of all, it’s free! In addition to this, Johnson City’s own holiday light displays are second-to-none. Lights Spectacular – Hill Country Style is now in its 29th year, featuring the “twinkliest town,” as Johnson City lights up for a free family fun and pet-friendly evening of seasonal celebration in light form.

When you and the family have reached your limit of Christmas light enjoyment, and you’re ready to unwind in a way that appeals to the whole group, get back on the coach for a night of Christmas caroling or simply snacking and cruising through the Hill Country. The amazing home light displays and vantage points you can catch on your tour of the area will “wow” even the grinchiest of hearts, making them grow three sizes (wink, wink)!

Not having to drive makes this trip even better. Letting someone else guide your family on their tour of Texas Christmas lights and family fun allows you to fully experience everything and simply be in the moment. With a charter bus, you not only achieve that, but you do so in style and comfort. Find it all in Johnson City when you plan an amazing holiday weekend trip to the Texas Hill Country! Pack your bags and plan your Christmas-light-viewing itinerary. It’s really that easy to relax and enjoy the holiday season deep in the heart of Texas.
