Holiday Illumination at the JW Marriott San Antonio

Who doesn’t love taking in the sparkle and splendor of Christmas lights this time of the year? From your neighborhood’s décor to the River Walk spectacular, illumination sightseeing options abound in San Antonio.

A friend recommended that my hubby, Little G, and I check out the Holiday Illumination at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. So we did, last night. The whole experience is remarkable.

The Holiday Illumination runs nightly through December 31, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Cost is complimentary.

And now, for some pictures …

My favorite part of the Holiday Illumination was the gingerbread house display, which greets you as you enter the lobby. Isn’t this festive creation just incredible?

The resort’s staff put 500 pounds of sugar, 250 pounds of fondant, and similarly striking foodie figures to use in constructing all the gingerbread houses.

Predictably, Little G’s favorite gingerbread house featured the Frozen cast. 🙂 Olaf’s everywhere these days!

The outdoor winter wonderland of lights takes place on the resort’s Crooked Branch Patio. I love how the colors twinkle across the water here.

Behind this tree is a red sleigh attached to a sparkling reindeer—the perfect photo op for you and your loved ones. Enjoy, friends!
