Christmas in College Station is back as we continue our spirited efforts to make our community THE destination for holiday fun.
But don't take our word for it.

A top travel website called Trips to Discover recently named College Station one of Texas's top Christmas towns, thanks in no small part to the always popular Santa's Wonderland. More than 300,000 visitors from across the nation visit Santa’s Wonderland each year, and more are on the way thanks to a breathtaking expansion to what was already an unmatched holiday destination. 

That’s why Visit College Station has partnered with Santa’s Wonderland to encourage visitors to stay overnight to enjoy other festive events and cheerful specials throughout town. And Christmas in College Station isn’t just for visitors — residents and area businesses can join in the fun, too!
