Katy is located a few minutes from Houston, making it a perfect place for a Texas day trip.
One of my favorite holiday traditions is getting a cup of hot chocolate, grab some holiday treats, turn on some holiday music and drive around looking at Christmas light displays with my son. Seeing all the creative lights gives us the holiday cheer we all want.
