It’s that time of year when “The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas” gets a big dose of Christmas cheer. Walking down the busy Georgetown sidewalks surrounded by wonder and lights feels like stepping into a classic Christmas carol, and at the top of every hour, if you listen closely, you’ll even hear silver bells ringing in the distance.
Every building of the Square is dazzling with hundreds of lights, wreaths and bows, transforming it into a magical Christmas wonderland. In the center of it all, the Courthouse glows with red and green lights, as well as 5 Christmas trees. It’s the ideal family photo-op. While exploring the lawn, you’ll find that even Mr. Dan Moody’s statue has a scarf to help him feel festive!
The canopies of trees over each walkway are wrapped with twinkling lights, and the sidewalks gleam in the light of old-fashioned street lamps donning Holiday wreaths. It’s like jumping straight into a Currier and Ives postcard — the only thing missing is a blanket of snow! (And as you know, we don’t get that much in Texas…)
The window displays in each store are like something out of a storybook. You’ll find the wildly decorated Gumbo’s with cheetah-print wrapped columns and giant Nutcracker soldiers. Look in the windows of the restaurant to find extravagant Christmas trees with little gifts underneath!
The extravagant Christmas display in Diva’s windows are just a taste of what awaits inside. Every inch of the showroom has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland with ornaments and snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and every color of Christmas tree decorating the store. Yule love their Christmas decor!
Pop by Pink Poppy, which is decked out in funky snowflakes and fabulous sparkly trees, to see the Christmas Pig riding his bike — he’s gotta get to the North Pole to help Santa with all those gifts!
On your Christmas journey, you can grab some chocolate treats at Sweet Serendipity and see the Christmas Eve scene in their windows. While you’re there, say “hello” to Three-Legged Willie who’s hanging out in front of the Williamson Museum.
If you find yourself getting chilly on your stroll through the Square, stop at Cianfrani Coffee Company, a favorite local hangout, for a cup of hot cocoa or a toasty chai latte. At Mikey V’s Hot Sauce Shop, you can thaw out with taste bud-kickin’ hot sauces that’ll keep you nice and warm!
