Austin’s 37th St. Christmas Lights

BLOG-37th-Street-Xmas-LightsAs the premier Austin custom home builder, Sterling Custom Homes embraces the unique personality of our wonderful city. For some of our fellow Austinites, “Keeping Austin Weird” is a full-time job! If you live on 37th street in Austin, your contribution to this commitment is on full display during the Christmas season with your 37th Street Christmas Lights! When you purchase a home on this street you must understand that you will be participating in one of the most eccentric Christmas light displays around! It’s a spectacular showcase of Holiday enthusiasm and local creativity that attracts admirers from all over the State and beyond. This wonderfully quirky tradition has even been featured on Good Morning America.

Located just north of the University of Texas campus at Guadalupe St. and 37th, this well-established neighborhood transforms itself into a Christmas wonderland. The festive lighting is woven into trees, across roofs, old vehicles, street signs and walkways. No wonder this Christmas spectacle is known far and wide as one of the most creatively decorated blocks in all of Texas!

If you plan to visit this area, realize that thousands of people stroll the streets to enjoy the show. Plan ahead, dress warm if the weather is chilly, and expect challenges when searching for a parking spot… and get ready to be amazed! Who knows, you may even walk away with ideas for your own home Holiday décor?

Directions: From I-35, exit 38th Street and travel west. Once you see Speedway St., start looking for a parking space (note: no left turn onto Speedway). Instead you can turn on to Cedar (first left after Speedway). If you are coming from MoPac, exit 35th Street and go east (35th becomes 38th). At Guadalupe St. look for a side street with a parking space. Enjoy!
