Grab your ugly Christmas sweaters, matching pajamas, or snazziest formal wear and head to League City’s historic League Park this holiday season.
This year the park is decked out with a festive photoscape in front of the City’s beloved red train caboose. The glimmering holiday scene features two Nutcracker soldiers, dozens of crimson poinsettias, and several lighted Christmas trees adorned with red and gold ornaments. It's the perfect backdrop for stunning Christmas card photos, sparkling selfies, or a memorable family picture. (Share your pics using #LCHoliday, and tag us on social media!)
A visit to League Park will have you feeling merry and bright during the most Wonderful Time of the Year. It’s like stepping into your very own Hallmark Movie, and you are the star! The park’s charming gazebo is draped in garlands and bows, and you can’t miss the 20-foot-tall drumming Nutcracker standing watch over Main Street. Adding to the park’s beauty are its sprawling oaks and well-manicured garden.
When you've finished your photo sessions at the park, walk over to The Market Station, just steps away, and check out their gorgeous selection of seasonal home decor, or stop by Butler’s Courtyard—the very first brick building constructed in League City. Stroll across Main Street and check out the Shoppes at Founder's Square—a cluster of historic homes-turned-boutiques—for an exquisite holiday shopping experience.
While you’re here, don’t miss Helen’s Garden just down the road. This lush garden is League City’s most photographed spot—meticulously landscaped with bubbling waterfalls and tropical plants—and it’s all dressed up for the holidays.
If you can’t get enough of League City’s lovely tree-lined Historic District, there is plenty more to do. Check out this boutique map for a list of some favorite local shops, and stop for a lunch break at Main Street Bistro. When you’re ready to take in some local scenery, visit Heritage Park for peaceful creekside views, a pond filled with friendly turtles, a playground for kiddos, and even a museum dedicated to the famous Texas Longhorn cattle breed.
On the evening of November 28, you’ll want to head back to League Park for the Holiday Tree Lighting, beginning at 6 p.m. Enjoy a free League City commemorative ornament to remind you of your time with us, and sip on a complimentary warm cup of hot cocoa.
Cheers to a Very Merry Holiday Season!
