Christmas Festivities at Meadow Lights

What it is:

Meadow Light is an amazing Christmas light display in Meadow, NC, about an hour away from here.  Some of the displays include an authentic manger scene, carousel scenes, and much more. You can view most of the lights display as you ride on at train.  
There is also a carousel to ride on, an old-fashioned candy store and Santa Claus.  There is also a family smorgasbord restaurant nearby.

What we liked:

This is a low-key, great way to view Christmas lights.  There are trains that depart constantly and it opens as early as 5pm for younger ones.  You don't have to wait in a long line or order tickets way in advance like some other Christmas trains or festivities.  

Also it is extremely affordable.  The train costs around $3 per person and they sell kid-friendly food such as hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches at a low price.  

The candy store sells delicious homemade chocolates, sweets and toys and offers a great place to escape from the cold outside.   The carousel is fun too with lots of lights.  You can take a picture with the whole family on Santa Claus's lap (if you'd like) and get a Polaroid picture as a souvenir. 

What we would change:

There really isn't a thing I'd change about this place, except wish it was a little closer.   But it is definitely worth the drive.
