One of the best ways to celebrate the Christmas season is to visit one or more of its many drive-thru light shows in Massachusetts. You’ll definitely want to visit Bright Nights at Forest Park in Springfield, the largest drive-thru light display in New England. Turn up the Christmas carols and wear your favorite Christmas jammies for the miles-long journey through countless shimmering lights. Don’t forget your camera, so you can snap photos of the magical North Pole Village, Jurassic Park, and Seuss Land.
What are the best holiday events in Massachusetts?
Some of the most magical places in Massachusetts at Christmas are found at its many holiday events. Winter Lights at Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, for example, shimmers with Christmas lights and even runs through March, keeping it festive all winter long. Breathe in the fresh winter air with a Christmastime visit to Stone Zoo in Stoneham, which hosts the magical Zoo Lights. You might even catch a glimpse of such beautiful animals as artic foxes, Canadian lynx, and bald eagles. Or, you can go on a leisurely stroll through the enchanting town of Pittsfield to admire its beautifully decorated trees.
Is Massachusetts a good place to visit in the winter?
You can’t find a better place to visit in wintertime than Massachusetts. In addition to a visit to some of the most charming towns in Massachusetts, including Chatham and Nantucket, you’ll also find a ton to do outdoors, especially after a snowfall. One of the best ways to wind down from all of the holiday activities is to spend a few hours snow tubing. You can do just that at Nashoba Valley’s Snow Tubing Park. Tucked in Westford, the snow tubing park boasts 18 lanes, making it the largest snow tubing park in New England. Don’t worry about having to climb back up the hill after each run. You’ve got a tube lift to take you straight to the top, so you can get in as many runs down the hill as possible.
