Best Things To Do in Houston in December with Kids: Christmas, New Year's Eve, and More Holiday Activities
It's the most wonderful time of an admittedly strange year--but while this year may have been different from other years, the holidays in Houston are still packed with festive fun for the family.
Holiday light shows are taking center stage this year, especially walk-thru and drive-thru shows like The Light Park at Hurricane Harbor SplashTown and Prestonwood Forest's Nite of Lights. We also recommend checking out some of our seasonal favorites like Santa's Wonderland, Zoo Lights, and the Holidays at Moody Gardens, as well as some of the awesome Christmas train rides for an extra dose of holiday cheer.
For everyone wanting to avoid crowds and/or stay at home, our event calendar is jam-packed with virtual holiday events that are sure to bring the spirit of Christmas into your home. You can even have a live video call with Santa and Mrs. Claus!
Don't forget to sign up for our free monthly newsletter to stay up to date with all the latest news and events. From all of us on the Mommy Poppins team, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We can't wait to ring in 2021 with you!
Your health and safety continue to be our top priority, and we are working hard to promote activities that have safety precautions and social distancing measures in place, however we also recommend wearing a mask and frequently sanitizing while you're out and about. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, you can use the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
