Holiday Season To-Do’s in Palo Alto!

December 18th, 2010 by admin

Looking for a break from all that holiday shopping?

Stop by the Palo Alto Museum of American Heritage (MOAH) for their exhibit with a youthful, whimsical feel–”Living LEGO-cy: Legendary LEGOS and Terrific Trains.” Everyone loves trains and this exhibit won’t disappoint. Together with the Bay Area LEGO User Group and the Bay Area LEGO Train Club, the MOAH presents its annual holiday display, featuring a 12.5-by-25-foot scenic layout with multiple trains running through magnificent city, farm and suburban scenes, including recreations of many actual Bay Area locations. Pictures of the display can be found here. This exhibit runs through Jan. 9 at the MOAH, located at 351 Homer Ave. Admission is free for MOAH members and an affordable $2 for non-members. The museum is open Friday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

And of course it wouldn’t be the holiday season without lights….lots of lights. The tradition continues this year–Fulton Street (off Embarcadero Road), better known as the “Christmas Tree Lane” of Palo Alto, is now lit up for the holidays. This long-standing tradition, which began in 1940, features fun activities with miniature Christmas trees lining the street, the famed, larger-than-life toy soldier and, of course, some of the most beautifully decorated homes in all of the Bay Area. Images can be found here. Christmas Tree Lane will be lighted each night from 5:00 pm to 11 pm. through December 31.
