The holiday season is in full swing. We’ve all recuperated from our fabulous Thanksgiving dinners and being up all night and day shopping on Friday. You’ve probably already decided where Christmas dinner will be and what time you’ll surprise the kids with their gifts. Have you decided how the kids will spend their holiday break? After dinner at Grandma’s house and the after Christmas shopping, you have to squeeze in some holiday family fun.
Here are a few of our favorite holiday attractions:
- “Circle of Lights” at Monument Circle in Indianapolis. The “Circle of Lights” is home to the World’s Largest Christmas Tree which is made of 5,000 lights and 52 strands of garland streaming from the 242 foot tall soldiers and sailors monument. A beautiful holiday celebration, the “Circle of Lights” has been named one of the top 5 must see holiday attractions in America. For more information and ticket prices, visit visitindy.com
