What is the best Christmas getaway in the Pacific Northwest?

The best overnight Christmas getaway in the Pacific Northwest is The Lights of Christmas in Stanwood, WA, just an hour north of Seattle, WA. You not only experience the fabulous wonderland of over one million lights, live entertainment and fun activities, you get to stay in holiday themed lodging and soak in the Christmas spirit. Your special time at The Lights starts as soon as you check in right at the parking area. A volunteer host will help direct you to your accommodations or whisk you and your luggage in a courtesy cart directly to your room.

There are numerous lodging options at The Lights of Christmas for couples, families, and groups. The Bayside Inn is perfect for couples and small families, the Mt. Baker rooms and Kringle Cottage are ideal for families, while the Nutcracker Suite, Trails End and Ever After Mini-Lodges are terrific for large groups and families. By staying overnight, guests get the opportunity to fully enjoy the evening without a long drive home. Festival admission is included in the price, and a breakfast buffet the next morning is included in your stay.

Lots of delightful memories will linger long after you leave, so you might make Overnight Getaways at The Lights an annual tradition. Quite a few guests do!
