Blog by Stacha Yundt

The holidays are just around the corner, and while a lot of things may look and feel a little different this year, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the season in style in Ohio’s Largest Playground! Each of these awesome Warren County attractions are doing their part to provide safe and healthy holiday fun this winter!

The LM&M Railroad | Lebanon, Ohio

The LM&M Railroad
This holiday season, the LM&M Railroad’s Holiday Express is your ticket to memories and a little holiday magic. Enjoy a 45-minute journey through Warren County inside a festive, socially-distanced rail car! In each car, one of Santa’s elves will make a special appearance to make holiday-themed balloons and share stories straight from the North Pole! Once back at the station, your Elf will bring you to Santa himself! Be sure to bring a letter along to drop in the box for Santa to read later. To wrap your visit up with a bow, you’ll leave the Holiday Express with a holiday bell and an individually-wrapped cookie.

Snowland at Great Wolf Lodge
Find your howl-iday spirit at Great Wolf Lodge this season when you visit during the spectacular Snowland event! For a few weeks out of the year, the Lodge is transformed into a magical holiday getaway with festive decor and plenty of seasonal activities for the entire family! Where else can you go walking through a winter wonderland on your way to an indoor water park?

Yuletide Village at the Ohio Renaissance Festival
All-new in 2020, see the Ohio Renaissance Festival grounds transformed into a holiday wonderland at Yuletide Village! Find one-of-a-kind gifts as you stroll through the Village, meet Santa (or Krampus!) in the Woodland, experience a Winter Fairy Land, and enjoy spectacular lights and music! All of these activities and more will be sure to ring in the holidays like never before!

The Christmas Ranch 
Enjoy an old-fashioned family experience when you visit this award-winning and nationally recognized holiday light attraction! With walkable and drive-thru only options available, enjoy the lights and cheer as you explore one of Ohio’s Largest Playground’s favorite holiday destinations! A cozy cup of cocoa and a wide selection of treats make a trip to the Christmas Ranch as delicious as it is unforgettable! Don’t forget to drop by for a visit with Santa before heading home.

La Comedia Dinner Theatre | Springboro, Ohio

A Christmas to Remember at La Comedia Dinner Theatre
Make it an evening (or afternoon) to remember at La Comedia Dinner Theatre’s performance of A Christmas to Remember! The mood will be nothing short of holly & jolly as you enjoy some of your favorite Christmas songs, and a performance from Santa himself!

Small Town Shopping
