The holidays are coming and that is a big deal in Texas as many hotels and resorts are preparing to make their establishment merry and full of Christmas cheer.  Many children will have as much as two weeks out of school and that would be the perfect time to take advantage and plan a family vacation.

Culture Map Austin has provided a list of hotels that are offering holiday getaways so I have found three hotels in Texas that will ensure a lot of family fun and plenty of Christmas activities for the kids.
