If you’re celebrating the winter down South at The Inn at Dos Brisas, it’s unlikely that you’ll get a white Christmas, but you won’t be without holiday charm. The Spanish casita-style buildings of the inn, tucked onto a massive 300-acre luxury ranch in Washington, Texas, are transformed with seasonal decorations. Then the inn sets off fireworks for New Year’s Eve. Even if you don’t stay at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel during Christmastime, there are other festive times to visit. If your trip lands near the end of October, set aside time to attend the Scarecrow Festival in nearby Chappell Hill for some Halloween treats. And in April, have a true Texan experience at the Bluebonnet Festival, also in Chappell Hill; this fest celebrates the colorful Texas flower.
