The Hotel Marblehead is situated right in the heart of the North Shore. There are many places to see holiday lights and get in the holiday spirit close by to the hotel. Time to spread some holiday cheer: grab some hot chocolate, and be ready to start singing Christmas carols. There are numerous displays in Marblehead and in the surrounding area that we are sure you will enjoy.
Zoo Lights at the Stone Zoo
Can you get more into the Christmas spirit than with Christmas lights, animals, and Santa? The Stone Zoo sets up a great Christmas display filled with reindeer, Santa’s castle, and lots of sparkling Christmas lights.
Riverside Drive in Marblehead
Riverside Drive is the definition of the spirit of Christmas. Every home, every tree, every inch of this street gets decorated for Christmas. It’s a close drive from the hotel and a great place to put on some Christmas carols and bundle up.
The Marblehead Neck
Just a short drive from the hotel is the Marblehead Neck abounds with beautiful homes decorated for Christmas and the holiday season. From this point, you can also see the Marblehead Light, a tall lighthouse, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Boston Public Garden
Just south of The Hotel Marblehead, you can stroll through the Boston Public Garden to see the garden decorated for the holiday season. There are glittering lights everywhere you look. Don’t miss the large tree in the center of the garden which is the City of Boston’s official 2018 Christmas tree. Often times you can hear Christmas carolers singing the season’s most beloved songs throughout the garden.
Watch the Polar Express in 4-D
The Museum of Science located by the Charles River is currently featuring this classic Christmas movie in 4D. The story centers on a young boy who is questioning whether or not Santa truly exists. The little boy is picked up by a train called the Polar Express that is journeying to the North Pole filled with many other children. It’s a great movie for children and adults alike about the true spirit of Christmas.
