Christmas Things To Do In New York

by The Coach Team

Christmas comes but once a year. That holiday season is coming up very soon!

It is a long, long trip to the real North Pole – but did you know that right in the High Peaks area of Upstate New York is the best alternative to see Santa?

It is a perfect destination for kids and adults, and the best way to get into the holiday spirit. Children can go on amazing rides like the Candy Cane Express, Bobsled Rice, The Christmas Carousel, The Peppermint Swing, and the Santa Sleigh Coaster. Bundle up and cruise through the festive spacious grounds and take in the Nativity Pageant, The Ragdoll Romp and the Santa Claus Parade.

Santa Clause at the North Pole, NY

Since 1949 this attraction has been open, and they have put together seasonal activities that will be remembered and cherished by your little ones for years to come. The winter schedule is every weekend leading up to Xmas week when they are opened on the 25th through 30th of December.

Participate in special events like the Trim The Tree Party where kids decorate the tree right along with Santa’s own helpers. There are a number of ‘host lodgers’ in the immediate vicinity, and wonderful accommodations are available there. Santa actually makes the rounds for a surprise visit over the weekend, and each child is given a unique gift chosen just for them! Caroling, story time, magic – are all wonderful parts of this total Santa experience.

Go With the Whole Family or Your Chosen Group

…and instead of getting behind the wheel and navigating there yourself with others in your party traveling in their own cars – why not take a luxurious tour charter bus of the exact size you need for you and your travel companions.

The North Pole Home of Santa’s Workshop has a group sales number and of course our own staff at Coach Tours can assist with creating the absolute best itinerary for your trip. We are experts in holiday bus tours. Perhaps make it all last a few days. Hotels, restaurants and other points of interest along the way can all be incorporated to make the most amazing winter holiday excursion for you and your family and friends!
