Dutch Winter Wonderland – Holiday Fun with Kids

Hello + Happy Holidays! It’s been a crazy week! Santa came, there was lots of merry, even more cheer and all sorts of madness. As you can tell, I ended up taking a few days off blogging to enjoy the holidays with my family – it’s been nice to take a little social media break and enjoy this special time with my kids. I didn’t mean to do it, but I did it and it felt good!

More on all our Christmas fun, I’ll be sure to catch you up on what we’ve been up to in another post, but I had to pop on today and share the fun we had LAST weekend, a few days before Christmas – just incase you were looking for something super fun and festive to do with the kiddos this weekend yourself!

But first, a brewery.

You know I love to find breweries everywhere I go – and a visit to Dutch Wonderland was no exception. Victory Brewing Company is an awesome space with great food and brews – and it’s about 20 minutes from Dutch Wonderland, so its a nice little place to stop for lunch before hitting up the park. The DW seasonal hours are a little different – the day we went it didn’t open until 3, so it made sense to break up the day in the car and stop for a meal. They even had a cool corn hole play area for the kids to get the wiggles out. Win.

We ended up meeting up with one of my good friends, Michelle and her three kids – they were on their way up to Pennsylvania from Virginia for Christmas and it was the perfect excuse to get together and have some fun!

If you want to get caught up on all our previous visits to Dutch Wonderland, check out these posts:

As you can tell, we love to come here. It’s perfect for the kids at a young age – there are tons of rides, a great water park area in the summer and they do such a great job at Halloween and during the Holidays.

And I love taking that picture of the boys with the pretzel every time we visit, just to see how much they change each time! They are growing up way too fast, but that’s another story for another day!

At Dutch Winter Wonderland, there are TONS of the favorite rides open – and tickets are super affordable because of the holiday hours! It’s a great place to go to take the kids – especially with this mild December weather!

The boys love all the rides, but we love to come during the Winter months to see the amazing Royal Light Show – which features thousands of twinkle lights dancing to music. It plays very frequently and it’s not to be missed.

But our favorite of the holiday fun {aside from seeing Santa!} is the Holiday Train Ride through the park. They do such an amazing job with the decor and the lights, it really gets you into the festive spirit – before or after Christmas!

It’s one of my favorite holiday attractions too – it’s just so beautiful, they kids are always mesmerized. If you find yourself looking for something to do as this 2018 Holiday season comes to an end, be sure to check out Dutch Winter Wonderland!

And Cheers to 2019!
