Feeling the holiday spirit?  Ready to take a drive and see some festive lights?   Pack your family in the car with some blankets, a thermos of hot cocoa and some treats to munch on and you will have a memorable evening!  Don’t forget to play some holiday music while you tour San Antonio’s best light shows.

You can play it safe and head downtown where the River Walk and Alamo Plaza have been festooned with lights, but if you’re looking for some new areas to go hunting for fun Christmas light shows check out these neighborhoods:

Windcrest has been nicknamed the “City of Lights” for its annual Christmas light displays.  Located in Northeastern San Antonio, this area was once a favored neighborhood.   Currently undergoing some revitalization efforts, the city itself has retained its charm.  Centrally located between Randolph and Lackland AFBs, click here for map.

The University of the Incarnate Word campus has a LOT of trees and they are a beautiful canvas for holiday lights.  You can catch a view at the intersection of Broadway and Hildebrand, but once classes are out for the semester, you’ll be able to drive around the campus and get the full effect. The lights are turned on at 6:00 p.m.  Easy to access from either Randolph or Lackland AFBs, click for map here.

Behind the shopping center known as The Forum are blocks of homes with amazing light displays.  Head south on Olympia from the shopping center to enter the neighborhoods and see for yourself.  Closer to Randolph AFB.  Click here for map

Shavano Park has some impressive light displays.  Plan to drive around to find the best spots, since displays are scattered throughout the neighborhood.  Centrally located between Randolph AFB and Lackland AFB.  Click here for map.
