It’s Christmas in College Station, you all! After experiencing it myself, I now see why people from everywhere trek the drive to see it all.

It’s a great place to gather your family for some holiday cheer.
My grandson and I just came home from spending a couple of days in College Station. We marveled over the extraordinary outdoor event – Santa’s Wonderland. We drove through the lights at Central Park, shopped at Howdy Holly-Days, and ate at Dixie Chicken. This was our first time experiencing Christmas in College Station, and it was so impressive that I’ve now deemed it my favorite small town to spend the holidays in! College Station hosting us for two days to experience what it’s like to spend the holidays here. OMG—it was marvelous!

Why yes, Santa chose a few hotels in the area to offer visitors. We stayed in the heart of Texas A&M at the remarkable Texas A&M Hotel And Conference Center. Kyle Field was right outside our hotel window. The hotel was so lovely, and everyone there was sincere and helpful to Brody and me – even the guests!
George Bush Presidential Library
If there’s time in your visit, think about visiting the George Bush Presidental Library to see it decorated for Christmas. But most importantly, to see and read the stories about the wars, the great things that happened in the ’90s, the life and times of President George Bush, and the stories that will take you back a few years when presidents were nice to each other and supported one another! Brody was most intrigued with Pearl Harbor as he’s learning about that war in school.
See it all visit Christmas In College Station …and here’s to a hopefully white Christmas in the south!
