Christmas Tree Lane

100 Years of cheer! We drove the lane up and back down. While I wouldn't say this is the most impressive display of lights, it's a very pleasant jaunt if you're in the area. To soak up some cheer, go with a friend, blast some holiday tunes, and holler "Happy holidays" at your fellow passersby who are cruising through.
