Holiday Lights and Christmas Tree Cutting at Elizabeth Farms

September 13, 2011

The holiday season is a magical time in Lancaster County and the Historic Smithton Inn and it’s not too early to start planning your trip.  Each of our guest rooms has a working fireplace, so cozy, romantic evenings are assured.  Add to that some wonderful daytime and evening attractions and you can see why it’s a good time to visit PA Dutch Country.

A new attraction to the area is the Gift of Lights at Elizabeth Farms.  Elizabeth Farms, just a few miles up the road from the Smithton Inn, has been the area’s largest Christmas tree farm since 1758, and this holiday season, more than one million lights will set the farm aglow. This drive-through experience will become a treasured tradition for family and friends to enjoy together.

As the area’s largest live Christmas tree farm, Elizabeth Farms creates the perfect holiday setting for the millions of twinkling Christmas lights. While the Gift of Lights is the farm’s newest addition, Elizabeth Farms has a lot to offer throughout the holiday season including Santa’s workshop which is filled with wonderful holiday gifts and family-fun activities including a petting zoo. Enjoy complimentary hot chocolate in the festive courtyard filled with lighted Christmas trees. You can also have photos made with Santa Claus.  But best of all, you can find your own perfect Christmas tree by riding through the 200-acre tree farm on horse-drawn wagons!!

Why not make a weekend out of it?  Explore the area, catch a show, eat at our fabulous restaurants, cut down your own tree and drive through the light show!!  Book your Lancaster County Christmas Tree weekend package at the Historic Smithton to create holiday memories that will last a lifetime!
