Holiday Fun in Houston:
Nightly through 12/31/07: If your family likes looking at Christmas lights, you’ll love Santa’s Wonderland. Located in College Station, TX., you’ll need to plan this as a late afternoon into evening trip. There are literally millions of lights and themed displays that are amazing. Hayride tours are available or you can just drive through the park in your own car, tuning in to the local radio station established by the park. Tip: Head out of Houston around 3:30 pm so that you arrive in the Hempstead and Navasota around 4:30-5 pm. Stop for dinner at the Black Canyon Express Restaurant in Navasota (on the west side of Hwy. 6). This is a tasty treat and not expensive. The owner Kevin welcomes kids, too. Then, head to Santa’s Wonderland for the opening gates at 6 pm.
Physical location: From Houston, take 290 to Hempstead, then take Hwy.
6 north to College Station. Exit at Texas World Speedway. Cross over the overpass and stay on the feeder road. Travel nearly one mile.
Until the next nap time...
