Philadelphia Trip: Macys Lights/ Ice Skating Blue Cross River Rink

  • Marshalls 4607 Kirkwood Highway Wilmington, DE 19808 United States (map)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...ev'erywhere you go.

We will begin the afternoon with the Christmas Light Show and Wanamaker Organ Concert at Macy's, which is a Philadelphia tradition that dates back more than half a century. During the light show, more than 100,000 bright, energy-efficient LED lights combine to create fantastic holiday images.

Then we will go back in time to “Dickens Village” and maybe catch a glimpse of the Ghost of Christmas Past. The 6,000-square-foot Village on the 3rd floor of Macy’s Center City brings Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol to life with more than 100 fully animated figures reenacting 26 of the story’s most memorable moments.

-No Cost

As long as we do not have to escape the Ghost of Christmas Future, we will head to the Trolley Car Diner and Cafe-What could be more fun than eating dinner in a Trolley Car?

- Plan on bringing $20.00 (we're in Philly after all)

Then we will head over to the Blue Cross River Rink for 90-minutes of ice skating on an outdoor rink set to the backdrop of Penns Landing, the sunset, and the outdoor holiday lights. It's sure to be a fun time!
