HOLIDAYS OUTSIDE MONTCO

Nearby Celebrations of the Season

Although Montgomery County turns into Santa-central each November and December, a number of Yuletide festivities are available outside our immediate footprint. Checking into one of our signature hotels positions holiday revelers with a short and easy commute to enjoy additional holiday magic:

Sesame Place

SESAME PLACE

35 Miles East of Valley Forge

Cookie Monster, Ernie, Bert, Elmo and Big Bird are as excited as anyone for the arrival of Santa. Under the banner of A Very Furry Christmas, the Sesame Street crew offers light shows, parades and special performances. Seasonal programming runs from November 21 to December 31. 

Attractions - Presidential Montco - BYERS' CHOICE CHRISTMAS MUSEUM

BYERS' CHOICE CHRISTMAS MUSEUM

Chalfont
17 Miles Northeast of Valley Forge

The merry must-sees here are the collection of crèches and an eye-popping gift shop that are open year-round, but December 11-13 brings a Dickens of a holiday happening: readings of A Christmas Carol by one of the author's great-great-grandsons.
