They do a great job with this every year. The light show is better than the ones in Batlimore in DC and you do not need to drive your car to see all of the lights. A golf cart tram takes you around the Northside...More

We visited Northside Park to experience the Christmas light, and we were not disappointed... The great deal of effort put in the displays was quite evident and it was a fantastic way to bring the 2018 to a close.... Well done !

We took our grandkids (4 & 8) to see Winterfest of Lights on December 8. We got our tickets in advance (through our hotel) and were able to get right on a tram. Very nice light display. Highly recommend for all ages.

First off I cant say enough about how happy I was with my cabin from Patriot Getaways! It was called Paws and Claws and it was amazing and secluded WAY up on a mountain! If you want luxury and romance or just a nice family getaway this is the one! (Problems with getting code for cabin due to cell phone and their 1 800 numbers to retrieve code. I had to call local office to get code then all was well again!) Dining places that were great...Applefarmhouse (seiverville), The Old Mill (PF),...More

Sorry about your accomadations at Carrs. Next time your in town try the Mountain Lodge on 321 for breakfast. Can not beat the food or the price, best pancakes anywhere. I am glad you enjoyed your trip at least for the most part. Thanks for the report.

I asked our hotel and they recommended renting a car to go there instead of taking the train, they said it would be cheaper to rent a car. That is the only way to get there on non-gamedays.
