My husband and I intentionally tried to slow down this weekend to enjoy some of our local holiday favorites. Every December we make sure to do three things–and two involve trains!! One is a visit to the College Park Aviation Museum–which is a ten minute drive away and is fun for people of all ages, but especially small children. From December 13-20th they have their holidays trains and planes exhibit. It’s impressive. The second thing we do is head to the US Botanical Gardens to see their holiday display. Granted it is a 20 minute drive and you have to fight for parking, but I think it’s worth the time. And my very favorite thing to do during Christmas is head to Watkins Park for their very impressive Festival of Lights. It’s a must see. Anyone else have any recommendations? If so, please post in the comment section. I will leave you with a few fun pictures from the Aviation Museum in hopes that you will visit soon.
