Lantern Light Tours 2016 at Mystic Seaport (Mystic, CT)
Mystic is approximately an hour’s drive from Meridian. This Lantern Light Tour is the perfect destination for a day trip. You’ll be taken back to a coastal New England village of old… 1876 to be exact.
The tour is actually a 70-minute progressive performance, where you’ll travel on foot as you enjoy a variety of Christmas-themed entertainment. It takes place, regardless of weather conditions. That being said, a snowy day would be perfect. Don’t you think? Tours are available on selected dates from November 26 through December
These are three family-friendly options of holiday happenings in the general proximity of Meridian, Connecticut. All of them are great choices, when it comes to spending quality time together during the Christmas season. Bundle up, hop in the car and let the fun begin!
