Winters in Austin are typically mild with moderate levels of snowfall and temperatures dropping below freezing only a few days throughout the year. Still, when the temperature does drop, and snow starts to fall, Austin truly becomes a winter wonderland in the heart of Texas. A lovely time you don’t want to miss, especially since there is so much stuff to do in Austin in the winter.
At AB Moving, our local Austin movers are well-equipped to pull off relocations during the cold conditions. Our moving company in Austin has helped numerous families move to new (and hopefully warm!) homes during the winter months, including during the holidays.
However, more than that, our Austin full-service movers know a thing or two about the community they serve. Here is a list we have compiled of the fun things to do in Austin in the winter. Whether you are interested in exciting Austin outdoor winter activities or you want to stay warm while having your fun, our Austin movers have got you covered.
See the Lights! What Austin lacks in snow, it makes up for in lights. Starting from late November or even earlier, multi colored Christmas lights in all shapes and sizes are strung up throughout the city. There are several light installations in Austin that can get you into the holiday spirit. Trail of Lights is a 53-year-old production that’s fun for the whole family. Walk through colorful outdoor displays while eating warm food from local food trucks parked nearby. Mozart’s Light Show is held at Mozart’s Coffee, so you can sip on a hot cup of cocoa or coffee while enjoying an immersive light show featuring more than a million of LED lights, music, and a live choir.
Go Ice Skating. Austin may not have cold enough weather for ice skating on natural ice, but there are still a few places you can enjoy outdoor ice skating in the city. Go to downtown Austin and then to the rooftop plaza of Whole Foods Market Lamar to partake in Ice Skating on the Plaza with the whole family. Winter Wonderland at the Circuit features light installations, camel rides, live music, a carousel, a petting zoo, and plenty of other attractions. However, the star player is the outdoor ice-skating rink, the largest in the Texas!
