Things to Do in Austin in the Winter

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.

Austin Outdoor Winter Activities

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!

Things to Do in Austin When It’s Cold

  • Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. If you would rather stay cozy indoors, don’t worry because there are plenty of things to do in Austin in the winter where you can stay comfortable and cozy. Visit the Armadilla Chrsitmas Bazaar, an indoor 11-day art and music festival from December 12 to the 24th. Enjoy live music from award-winning musicians, food, two full bars, and over a hundred booths where touring visual artists and local businesses sell their best works. A great place for gift shopping!
  • Miracle Christmas Bar. Nothing warms you up like a sipping on some alcohol spirits. And nothing gives you a drinking experience that gets you in the best holiday spirit better than the Miracle Christmas Bar. An intimate Christmas-themed pop-up cocktail bar where you can enjoy holiday-inspired cocktails while enveloped in kitschy Christmas decorations, ornaments, and lights from floor to ceiling!
