Create a new family tradition with Christmas Town at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. This theme park never skimps on the details – that’s why it has won The World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park for more than 20 years – and that’s why Christmas Town is always breathtaking.
Even if you think you’ve seen it all – you’ll love the over-the-top decorations and lights that set the mood for the holidays. Christmas Town exceeds expectations with its astounding bounty of holiday cheer, throughout the European-themed park.
For classic photo opportunities, head to Santa’s Workshop or the Irish show “Santa’s Fireside Feast.” You can enjoy holiday music and shows throughout the park, and accompany them with food from the old world, like traditional Italian or German Christmas dinners. If you just want a snack, grab some kettle corn and wassail to keep you warm on your journey through the park.
Children will be delighted with the experience, but especially with the live penguins in the Ice Palace in France and the Sesame Street Christmas show in the Globe Theatre. The entire park appeals to young and old with light shows, special holiday shopping and music.
Some of the rides are even open, if a bit of adrenaline gets you in the spirit! (or you could just enjoy a peppermint hot chocolate while you watch others brave the Alpengeist roller coaster.)
It opens right after Thanksgiving and runs until the end of the year – so when your family is looking for something special to do, you can head over to the park to explore. (It is closed on Christmas Day, though, so that everyone can spend it at home with their families.)
If you want to check it out before you go, try the Busch Gardens WebCam, and watch the Christmas tree light show every evening. Ticket prices vary, and season pass holders benefit with discounted rates.
