December 2016

Vol. 63, No. 12

December is perfect for recalling memories with family and friends. It's also a great time to plan new memories. We spotlight 17 trips for 2017. Those are new (or refreshed) attractions and destinations just waiting to be explored. Also, we do our best to light up the pages of our December issue by asking six photographers to share a creative pairing of Christmas lights and landscapes. Enhance the festive feel by taking a peek at holiday traditions in Georgetown, Fort Davis and Lubbock. The Houston Zoo lights up, too, as do many merry musical performances across the state.
