All Aboard for the North Pole!

This holiday season, take a break from shopping in Peddler's Village to climb aboard the North Pole Express, the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad's very special ride on the rails with Santa, Mrs. Claus and a band of holiday revelers. You'll sip hot cocoa (or cocktails at the cash bar) and nibble on cookies while kids clad in PJs take turns on the lap of Old St. Nick. Local musicians keep the mood merry with Christmas carol sing-alongs. Trains depart several times daily for the one to one-and-a-half hour trip from New Hope. Afterwards, head back to Peddler's Village for a look at the Gingerbread House Display in the Village Gazebo, an aromatic architectural work of art on view through January 3. Our favorite category? "Authentic Reproduction of a Significant Building" because, hey, if you're going to build, go big! The "Kids Only" category is pretty cute, too!

Address: 32 Bridge St., New Hope
