Christmas Festivities in the North Shore Area

Don't miss out on the fun North Shores, IL Christmas events!
Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is well on it’s way…but there are already a variety of Christmas festivities for your family to enjoy in the North Shore, IL area. For those who are single or have grown children, a trip into the City to see the store fronts lit up and decorated for Christmas, or a trip on a horse drawn carriage on a snowy day may be the perfect Christmas tradition.

For those with young children, there is also a lot to look forward to! Here are a few ideas for traditions you can start with your little ones.

Highland Park Santa on the Jingle Railway
On Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014, your family can take a trip on the Highland Park Railway, which departs from the Downtown Metra Station at 9am and 3pm. The cost for residents is $15 for adults and $25 for children and the cost for non-residents is $25 for adults and $45 for children.  Just as the Polar Express story this train is modeled after, children are encouraged to wear their pajamas to take their trip to the North Pole (Waukegan). The classic Christmas story of The Polar Express will be read during the train ride, and children will be served a cookie, and get to hear and sing along to fun Christmas music. Reservations are required for this fun Christmas event!

Lake Forest Santa on Claus’s Coach
If you live in the Lake Forest, IL area, there is a fun Santa Claus’s Coach train ride on Saturday, Dec. 13 that has trains departing between 11am and 1:30pm and Sunday, Dec. 14 between 1pm and 3:30pm. Children will be read one of Mrs. Claus’s favorite books during a train ride to the North Pole (Fox Lake) while drinking hot chocolate. This trip is perfect for kiddos ages one to twelve years.

Trains depart from the Lake Forest West Metra Station and reservations are required to take part in this fun Christmas event. The cost of tickets is $25 for residents and $30 for non-residents and this event is so popular, it sells out quickly so be sure to make your reservations today!
