Holiday plans are certainly going to look different this year. That said, many families are choosing to drive to see family members in other states as opposed to flying on commercial airlines. Their gatherings will be smaller but still meaningful. Others are opting to head out of town for a quick day or weekend road trip to see iconic Christmas towns around the country. This holiday season, keep your family safe from car trouble with Glass America’s convenient mobile service.
A Southern Spotlight
We have a soft spot for Tennessee, but so do other Americans! Franklin, one of Tennessee’s major cities, was named the third-best town to celebrate Christmas. Franktown Lights 2020 is open every night of the week at the Williamson County Ag/Expo Center through December 26th. You can enjoy the beauty of Christmas lights and displays while listening to classic Christmas tunes from the comfort and safety of your family’s car. The path is over a mile long.
An “Everything is Bigger” Christmas
Everyone knows everything is bigger in the Lone Star State. Is the lack of snow getting you down in Texas? Well, there are certainly a lot of Christmas events going on to make up for the lack of snow. Big Spring, which is also home to the Big Spring State Park, is known as the “Lighted Poinsettia Capital of Texas.” With traditional decor and enormous Christmas trees, your family will feel all of the magic of the holidays in Big Spring. Visit Comanche Trail Park’s Festival of Lights to see over a million lights on display. You can also experience the annual Drive-Thru Nativity at the First Church of the Nazarene.
A White Christmas Miracle
Of course, nothing says classic Christmas quite like the snow. While there is no guarantee of snow, those states furthest north typically stand a greater chance of experiencing a White Christmas. It is no wonder Ann Arbor, Michigan is the perfect spot for that snow-filled holiday miracle. The Wayne County Lightfest offers a beautiful four-mile drive-thru light display for the whole family through December 31st.
Christmas Train Ride
In Durango, Colorado, you can experience real magic this holiday season on a steam-engine train ride to the North Pole inspired by the classic story, The Polar Express. When you visit the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad & Museum, your family is sure to make memories that last a lifetime. You can also visit Christmas Town, USA in downtown Durango for shopping, live music, and of course, hot cocoa.
The best part about these Christmas towns? They are all located in states that offer Glass America services. No matter what happens on the road – the types of things you cannot control, our mobile service comes straight to you. It is important to us that your family is safe this holiday season. We ask that you get any chips, cracks, or other auto glass damage inspected and repaired before getting back on the road!
