Stanwood, WA for The Lights of Christmas

United States

By far one of my favourite Christmastime activities. I went with some extended family last December, and despite the freezing cold, we had a jolly time. We learned that there are over one million lights, and it takes months to set everything up. Well worth it, if you ask me. Everything is covered with a warm, Christmas-y glow, and there are plenty of creative displays spread all over the 15-acre camp.

Once we arrived, we were quick to pick up cups of hot chocolate and a bag of popcorn for snacking as we made our way through. There were carolers wandering around, and we joined them in singing more than once. : ) Along the way, we also found a big cabin, complete with a toasty fireplace and storyteller. We stayed to listen to her tale and then went on our way. The kiddos really enjoyed the petting zoo and their chat with Bruce the Spruce (literally an enormous talking Christmas tree). The lines were pretty long for visits with Santa, so we skipped him and opted for a couple of pony rides instead.

It took us a whole two hours to feel like we saw everything, and even with little ones, it was a cheerful visit!

Insider Tip

There are overnight accomodations at the camp. Be sure to book well in advance, though.
