Every lantern-lit path leads you to discover a new winter wonder. Strap on a pair of ice skates, shout out to Santa and his magnificent reindeer, find your reflection in a handcrafted ornament and nestle into a horse-drawn wagon for a sing-along.

Our 80 acres of living traditions etch America’s most heartwarming holiday experiences into your memories. Main Street brims with holiday goods, food and warm beverages. Historic home tours open the doors to centuries of favorite family traditions.
