A chill in the air meets the warm holiday spirit amid a multi-hued glow of Christmas lights, aromas of hot chocolate and mulled cider, and the sounds of Yuletide songs old and new. Welcome to winter in Llano County. Even in this coldest season of the year, temperatures here remain in the comfortable 30- to 60-degree range, making most outdoor pursuits quite doable. Just check the forecast, dress accordingly, and make the most of this season in the Hill Country.

This time of the year, you can enjoy the water without the summer crowds. Spend the day on lakes Buchanan or LBJ or walk along the Kingsland Slab, admire the distinctive granite outcroppings, and give your camera a workout.

By early December, thousands of twinkling bulbs bathe Llano, lending a festive air to this quaint town and making it the perfect venue for exploring downtown, stopping for a drink or a bite to eat, and then filling out your shopping list at one of the stores or galleries.

When darkness falls, celebrate the holidays in the multicolored splendor at Starry Starry Nights at Badu Park in Llano.
