If drinking hot cocoa while taking in 7 miles of lights, followed by a boat ride on Hood Canal with Santa sounds awesome, we are probably already good friends. With the mountains of the southern Olympic Peninsula looming in the distance, this holiday event at the incredible Alderbrook Resort is sure to become a family tradition.
At 4PM on Friday, November 29th, Alderbrook Resort will be having their annual “Winter Wonderland” event. Santa will be arriving from a boat on Hood Canal and will flip the switch on more than 7-miles of lights around the resort and woods. With Hot Chocolate flowing, photos with Santa being snapped and fireworks lighting up the night sky, this may just be the best local option for kicking off the holidays.
If you can’t make it this Friday, you will want to check out Alderbrook’s Saturday Cruises with Santa. During these 1PM cruises on the gorgeous Lady Alderbrook, Santa will read stories and listen to wishes as Christmas music plays. With cookies & cocoa for all, this is an awesome experience! Call 360.898.2145 for reservations and more information! Hurry though, it fills up fast!
Finally, if you can’t get up to the Tree Lighting or Santa Cruises, Alderbrook also offers free pictures with Santa every Saturday and Sunday in December, starting at 11am. Why not take the family, break out the ugly sweaters and come up to the best Resort in the Pacific Northwest. Alderbrook is friendly, accessible and located in a gorgeous location. It really is worth the trip to come see the lights, chat with Santa and take in the breathtaking views of the Hood Canal.
You don’t have to stay the night here to fall in love with the Hood Canal. With trails on-site, you can take a short hike in a pretty forest. If you want something more awesome, you are just minutes from the Staircase Region of the Olympic National Park. Planning a trip to Alderbrook to sip on some hot cocoa in the lobby of this exquisite Resort is a no brainer. Take a trip up to Alderbrook and enjoy a uniquely Northwest twist on the holidays.
