Hersheypark Christmas Candylane 

Each year, Hersheypark hosts its annual tribute to the holiday season with its Christmas Candylane event. This year’s festivities run from Nov. 15 through Jan. 1. Wander the light displays featuring more than 4 million bulbs, then visit Santa and his reindeer. You can also experience your favorite amusement park rides. 

Christmas Light Show with the Wanamaker Organ

Head to Philadelphia to participate in Macy’s Christmas Light Show featuring the Wanamaker Organ, the world’s largest, operational pipe organ. Visit during noon (on any day except Sunday) or during the 6 p.m. show (on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) to catch a live performance on the organ. However, if you catch one of the other showtimes, you can still enjoy a delightful recorded performance that syncs with the light display. 

Winter Flower Show and Light Garden

When in Pittsburgh for Christmas, make sure to stop by Phipps Conservatory to witness “Holiday Magic! Winter Flower Show and Light Garden.” Per the venue’s website, this year’s event runs from Nov. 29 through Jan. 12. Catch The Winter Flower Show anytime from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and the Winter Light Gardens anytime from 5-11 p.m. It’s worth noting that the conservatory closes at 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve and all day in observance of Christmas Day. 


Visit Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, during the holidays to see for yourself why it deserves its “Christmas City USA” nickname. Browse more than 150 artisans’ wares and sample yummy food at the Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem, twice named one of the best holiday markets in the nation by Travel + Leisure. You can also explore the Moravian Historic District, which boasts retail shops, gourmet restaurants, and historic Moravian museums.
