It takes an estimated 15,000 hours and 1,500 volunteers to put together Austin's Trail of Lights. Located in the Texas capital's Zilker Park, the popular light show has been going on for more than 50 years.

The 2.1-mile walking circuit features more than 50 light displays and 800 lighted trees. Standing above it all is the Zilker Tree; at 155 feet, it's touted as the tallest man-made free-standing Christmas tree in the world.

This being Austin, you'll also find food trucks and live performances throughout the event. On view from December 10 through December 23. Free general admission on most week nights, with a $3 fee on peak weekends.
