Are you a student staying in Aggieland for the holidays? Or are you a resident unsure of what festive things to do this holiday season? KAMU is here to help! Here’s a list of fun and festive activities to enjoy during the most wonderful time of the year.
Stroll Through Winter Wonderlands
If you are in the Bryan/College Station area, there are three must-see winter celebrations: Santa’s Wonderland, Stephen C. Beachy Central Park and Downtown Bryan.
One of the biggest winter wonderlands in the nation is right in our backyard. Santa’s Wonderland is the ultimate Christmas experience, from a beautiful Christmas light hayride through the park to a snow-filled playground. Enjoy the fun and magical attractions and visit Santa and his friends. It’s a great place to make memories with your loved ones. Visit their website for more information.
If you are looking for a more relaxed (and free) holiday event, visit Stephen C. Beachy Central Park in College Station. During the holidays, the park is covered in beautiful lights that you can drive or walk through. One of the community’s favorites is the large Christmas tree, covered in stunning, twinkling lights. Fun fact: the tree stands 90 feet tall and has 14,400 light bulbs. Christmas in the Park will be open to the public until Jan. 1. Check out the City of College Station’s website for more details.
Do you want to experience a classic Christmas by walking through a beautifully lit historic downtown? If so, travel to Downtown Bryan! Stroll down the quaint streets, shopping and eating at some of the local spots along the way. It’s perfect for a family outing, date night or night out with friends. For more information, check out their website.
