Elgin
Distance: 25.6 miles
Just a 30-minute drive from downtown Austin is Elgin, home to one of the best Christmas tree farms in the area! Grab your family and head out to pick your annual Christmas tree, enjoy the petting zoo and sip on hot cocoa. The Elgin Christmas Tree Farm is open for sales beginning November 23.

A little closer to home you’ll find Gruene, a charming town during the holidays.
