What Are Your Fave Cool Old Holiday Places To Visit?

Posted on: December 1, 2009


Happy December everyone!

What cool old holiday places and events are you looking forward to visiting this year? Let me know and I can share with everyone!

One thing I’m looking forward to going to (Macy’s) in Philadelphia to hear the Wanamaker Organ and watch the light show. I may not be their demographic, but it’s such a cool old tradition, harkening back to the golden age of the city department store!

    Ooooh! Isn’t that the world’s largest functional pipe organ? How cool!

    As you know, we just got back from a trip to Santa Claus in Indiana, but I haven’t actually got any further in thinking about what other Christmassy things to do! Heck, I haven’t even put up the tree yet! :)

      Richard – it is indeed! You know your stuff. Can’t wait to get there, I think Retro Roadhusband and I are stopping by on Monday night!

    Every year right after Thanksgiving my ever expanding family visits LaSalette Shrine in Attleboro, MA. There are millions of lights, displays, holiday music playing, hot cocoa, hot cider, bread to buy, and the last two or three years includes a Merry Go-Round! Along with Edaville Railroad in Carver, MA (which I think sadly may be defunked now), this is my favorite holiday excursion!

      Lori- I went to La Salette once, actually it was around the same time you and I were at FSC. I remember it being very cold that night and looking at all the lights. Will see if that’s on the plan for our visit back home- thanks for the reminder!

      I’m going to check with Retro Roadsister and see if they’re planning on going to Edaville, that might be something we can do when we’re up at home for Christmas.
