While the holiday season and celebrations may look a little different this year, we deserve a little joy now more than ever. Sesame Place, located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, is the place to go to bring holiday cheer.
With two different celebration options, your family is bound to get in the holiday spirit.
Families can now experience Sesame Place in a new way during the all-new Furry & Bright Christmas Drive-Thru experience on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 10–Dec. 23. From the comfort of your car, journey through a winter wonderland with millions of twinkling lights, holiday décor, a festive Christmas soundtrack and your favorite friends from Sesame Street dressed in their winter best. Travel through Candy Cane Lane, lined with six-foot versions of the iconic treat, followed by a 50-foot tunnel made of twinkling lights that resemble a night sky. Next, be enchanted by a winter’s snowfall experience on Snowflake Way.
As you enter the park, become part of The Neighborhood Street Party Christmas Parade as your furry friends ride along on their festive floats. Expect a nine-foot menorah, and maybe even a visit from Santa Claus as he wishes everyone a happy holiday season.
Later this holiday season, join Elmo and friends for A Very Furry Christmas, a festive, family-friendly celebration. The park is transformed into a one-of-a-kind Christmas wonderland with holiday lights and festive decorations. The main event is the 1-2-3 Christmas Tree show, featuring a 30-foot, fully illuminated, pixel-based tree projecting festive animated images, while playing a holiday soundtrack, making it the ultimate light show experience.
Guests can also take a ride on the Sesame Place Furry Express train ride tour through the Twiddlebugs’ Gingerbread Cookie Factory.
A Very Furry Christmas runs Nov. 21–Jan. 3, 2021, and guests are required to make a reservation upon buying tickets to the holiday event.

The Hamilton Hotel, located steps away from the White House, was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with a quick check-in process. The lobby was immaculate with shining marble flooring, velvet couches and an arched ceiling design that brought a sense of sophistication. For added security, the elevators are only accessible to those who have a key card to a guestroom.
The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway will be back and better than ever in May 2021.

Experience this with your family when it reopens.
