Immerse yourselves in the joy of Christmas and create lasting memories with our ideas for dates in Houston this December.



1. LIGHTS IN THE HEIGHTS 2023

WHEN: DECEMBER 9, 2023

Don't miss the 28th annual Lights in the Heights, in the historic Houston Woodland Heights neighborhood. It can be best described a festive neighborhood block party, with each house decorated, live music and thousands of annual visitors. Get ready to walk this merry little neighborhood and enjoy some spiked cocoa along the way.



2. ICE SKATING AT THE GALLERIA OR DISCOVERY GREEN

WHEN: ALL MONTH!

At Christmas, The Galleria ice rink transforms into a winter wonderland, with arguably the biggest tree in all of Houston! What more could you ask for than skating, hand-in-hand with your special someone this December? Bonus points if you knock out a little Christmas shopping after too. If you're looking for a more traditional holiday skating rink, then an alternative to The Galleria is the Discovery Green outdoor ice rink.



3. SANTA HUSTLE 5K IN GALVESTON

WHEN: DECEMBER 17, 2023


So maybe you missed this year's Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, but you can make up for it this month! Supporting Galveston County Food Bank, the 2023 Santa Hustle in Galveston is a 5K for a cause. The race includes a swag bag including a hoodie, headband, and medal, plus a fun after party with prizes and activities.



4. GO TO A SHOW AT HOBBY THEATER

WHEN: DECEMBER 5 - 24, 2023

Planning a date night at the Theater Under the Stars is a must this season. With two options for shows this month, The Ugly Xmas Sweater Musical and Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, you can't go wrong with planning a theater night. Catch an early dinner and head to these productions for a holiday treat at the Hobby Theater.



5. POP-UP CHRISTMAS BAR HOPPING

WHEN: ALL MONTH LONG!

Our top 3 picks are Johnny's Gold Brick and Lei Low in The Heights, and Ice Bar at Moody Gardens in Galveston. If you're looking for specialty themed cocktails and over-the-top festive holiday environments, you need to head to Johnny's Gold Brick this month. For a little Mele Kalikimaka holiday spirit, Lei Low, your friendly Heights Tiki Bar, transforms into a holiday in paradise vibe. Lastly, if you've ever wanted to experience the novelty of an ice bar, then this winter head to Moody Gardens to brave the chilly environment in their new ice bar.
