Best Places to Visit for the Holiday Season in Pennsylvania

  1. Peddler’s village

Peddler’s Village, located in New Hope, PA, is one of the best places to visit during the holiday season. The location is beautiful, and the decor evokes holiday spirit. In addition to this beautiful scenery, there are numerous shops to help knock off items on the holiday shopping list and restaurants to fuel the hunger that comes with shopping. There are also varying events that occur during the season. Check out https://www.visitphilly.com/things-to-do/events/christmas-in-peddlers-village/ for more information!

  1. Shady Brook Light Show

Shady Brook Light Show, located in Yardley, PA, is the perfect drive-thru holiday event. You can enjoy the warmth of your vehicle while driving through the beautiful scenery of Shady Brook and witnessing the incredibly impressive light shows they assemble. All wrapped together with Christmas classics playing on the radio! Tickets must be purchased to attend this event.

  1. Christmas Village in Philly

Philadelphia’s Christmas Village is located at LOVE Park in Center City. The village is a market of various vendors selling all kinds of holiday items. Additionally, there is live entertainment and plenty of places to visit at the adjacent City Hall extension of the Christmas Village. It is running from November 25th to December 24th this year.

  1. Koziar’s Christmas Village

This is another Christmas Village on the list; however, I think it is quite different than the one in Philadelphia. Koziar’s Christmas Village, located in Bernville, PA, features a spectacular light display to fill even The Grinch with Christmas spirit.  Besides the impressive light displays, there are also shops and food to enjoy. Tickets are purchased upon arrival. Other information about the village can be found here: https://koziarschristmasvillage.com/visit-koziars/
