Holiday Adventures with Animals in Houston


Let’s face it: as much as many folks love the holidays, there are times where we can feel overwhelmed, whether it’s from the thick crowds of people rushing to get gifts for all their loved ones, or from being surrounded by family members who you may not agree with. Thankfully, here at Alexan Southside Place, we offer many opportunities for you to bring life back to the season thanks to our great location in Houston.

From November 23rd to January 12th, the Houston Zoo will host its annual Zoo Lights event, sponsored by TXU Energy; it is a beautiful spectacle of lights and activities that families of all ages can enjoy. Arrive during the day and enjoy all the year-round splendors of the Zoo, including the Nature Play Area, the McNair Elephant Habitat, and the Wortham World of Primates. Afterwards, stay past dusk and admire millions of lights around the zoo, including the Infinity Tunnel of Light and the 4-D Enchanted Forest exhibits, and have fun at the holiday-themed activities such as photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, s’mores by the campfire, and Candy the Zoo Lights Zebra. There are also special events with the Zoo Lights run that feature special conditions, such as the Ugly Sweater 21 & Up Night where adults can show off their holiday sweaters while enjoying one complimentary alcoholic beverage; and the Sensory Friendly Evening that allows children and adults with sensory sensitivities to join in the festivities.

Bring back that childhood glee of the holiday season here at Alexan Southside Place. Tour our Houston luxury apartments and the Houston Zoo this month.
