  • Personal Meet & Greet With Santa on The Parkway

    The Logan Hotel is offering a Holiday Magic experience on December 11th. The event is a one-of-kind that gives families a unique and personal way to visit with Santa! The activity offers welcome drinks for the parents (YAY!!!!), complimentary valet parking (double YAY!!!!), and 20 minutes of individual time in Santa’s Workshop with him and Mrs. Claus (don’t worry, Santa gets a list of who is attending ahead of time so he can refresh his memory of what your children want for Christmas). You’ll also get 5 to 15 digital professional photographs and a take-home box of Christmas cookies and decorating kit. The event takes place in the Holiday Lodge Suite. And if you’re looking for a little staycation, you can also book the Logan Holiday Lodge Suite, which is one of the best rooms available in the hotel and is decorated for the holidays. From bedding and your own Christmas tree to views of the Ben Franklin Parkway and a full course dinner and holiday treats served right in your room, you can relax in elegance this holiday season. The room also includes a pool table, dining room and a comfortable living room to relax with the family and watch a holiday movie. On the 9th floor of the building, you’ll find the pop-up Alpine Heights at the Assembly Rooftop Lounge! It’s a gorgeous winter-focused ski lodge with festive cocktails and comfort food.

    Promo: The Holiday Lodge Suite is being offered at a 50% discount than the normal price of the room.

Beginning Friday, November 25th and continuing each weekend in December, a different holiday movie will be featured. Cars line up in the pasture and visitors are invited to set up tailgate style or watch the movie from inside their car. Tickets must be purchased ahead of time. You can also get a Christmas tree, your holiday photos and holiday gifts wrapped while you’re at the farm.

  • Holiday Weekends in West Chester

    Historic Downtown West Chester transforms into a dazzling wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights during Chester County Hospital Lights Up Holiday Weekends. It’s one of my favorite towns, not only because I’m a WCU graduate, but because of how stunningly beautiful the town is. You can sip, shop, dine and enjoy holiday festivities every weekend through New Year’s. The town has 6 full weekends for you to enjoy with Santa, free outdoor holiday concerts, carolers, a professional gingerbread house competition and much more. Make sure you leave plenty of time for holiday shopping in West Chester’s one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques. On Friday, December 2nd, the West Chester Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting is back! It kicks off at 6:30pm with the official lighting of West Chester’s spectacular 26-foot-tall Christmas Tree on the lawn of the Courthouse. The parade starts at 7pm with the arrival of Santa in the most unique display yet. I spoke to Santa a few days ago and he told me it involves a zipline! After taking a 2-year hiatus due to COVID, this year’s parade will run a little more than an hour.  

    Dozens more weekend activities are listed on the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s website at gwcc.org.

    Helpful Hint: My favorite West Chester restaurant is Meatball U and it’s not because my cousin Dan owns the restaurant.  It’s because the meatballs are delicious!!!  Mention Cousin Kathy Romano for a free dessert with your purchase.  [Kathy’s Ma & the meatballs!]

  • Walk Thru Christmas Experience

    Christmas House KOP  is a new indoor holiday spectacular. You can get some shopping and a holiday activity done in one visit. The walk-thru Christmas experience is right inside the King of Prussia Mall, in the former JC Penny location. The fully-immersive Christmas tour consists of individually-themed rooms such as the “Christmas Story Café,” an “Elf Room” and a “Snow Room” where I had a snowball fight with my son.  Christmas House will bring guests through holidays of yesteryear and today, with imagery depicting various Christmas settings, ranging from the North Pole and Santa’s Workshop, to sets designed to replicate iconic scenes from holiday films. You can reserve tickets ahead of time but walk ups are also welcome.  Shopping, dinner and a holiday activity all in one place!  Plus, this is a great activity to do if it’s too cold or raining. Weather won’t stop my holiday activities!!! [Walk thru with Kathy]

    Coupon Code: Use Kathy10 for discounted admission.

    Helpful Hint: The dining experience at BarTaco is not like a traditional restaurant. You order at your own pace and through your phone. It’s another great place for margaritas. All juices are squeezed fresh behind the bar!
