A tradition for our family during the holidays. Carriage rides, ice skating, reindeer, music, food, and of course over a million Christmas lights.

Great place to go during the holiday season and see all of the people around that beatiuful Mission Inn. Love the ice rink on the mall area behind the hotel, and so many lights.

If you go during Christmas time, the whole section of building, carriages, and everywhere you go is fully decorated in lights galore. They have an ice-skating rink, and many of the cool shops, as well as street vendors. (I suggest the kettle corn- it's wonderful!). The Cinderella Carriage that they have is really pretty and takes you around the place,... More

wander around this place and enjoy the history...it feels like an old Spanish hacienda. It also smells like oranges, and I guess you can snag an orange from the tables since they are plentiful. We did not do that, but it is a good place to wander and ponder.

Christmas at the Mission Inn is spectacular and a must to see. Many Christmas Trees, oh so many lights everywhere. Best of all are the animated figures along the walking path. You can also have dinner outside or in. A trip there one a year does not get boring. There is so much too see!

i find historic things boring if you have to wait for someone to talk and tell you. i'm more of a fast paced DIY type of explorer, so i hated waiting for the tour guide to finish so we could move on to the next place HOWEVER, the tour was great and i learned some things that i would not... More
