One of Lakeway’s most cherished traditions is the Lakeway Trail of Lights, and it is also one of the best things about spending Christmas in this wonderful place.
Christmas is magic because it changes not only people, but also places. From simple settings in the city that we usually pass by, the holiday season transforms almost every corner of the city into a cheery holiday attraction.
One such place is the Lakeway Activity Center. It’s such an unsuspecting place outside the holiday season but once Christmas comes along, it transforms into the home of the memorable Lakeway Trail of Lights!
Once those Lakeway Christmas lights light up, you’re transported from the activity center into a mini Christmas wonderland. And it makes for the perfect place to enjoy the holiday spirit with your family while creating beautiful memories. In fact, people loved it so much that it has become a cherished tradition in Lakeway.
So if you’re in the city this holiday, don’t forget to check it out and make some new memories there. Here’s our guide to make sure your trip goes as smoothly as possible.
Lakeway Trail of Lights 2022 – What to Expect?
With thousands of lights covering dozens of figures and structures planted all around the Lakeway Activity Center grounds, the City of Lakeway Trail of Lights is an enchanting sight to see. You can spend hours exploring all the different light displays from the light tunnel to the various animals or figures strung up with lights. The best part is that every year holds a different surprise. So it doesn’t matter if you went last year. This year, there’ll be new things to explore!
One other great thing about the Lakeway Trail of Lights is that it’s accessible to anyone. People in wheelchairs or people who have strollers with them have a separate entrance route to the trail. And with that, they can enjoy the holiday cheer the trail provides along with everyone else.
The trail is also self-guided. There will be no attendants or vendors in sight so you’ll truly have the place to yourself to enjoy without any kind of pressure.
