  • Add To My Trip PlannerCheck out the newest addition to Busch Gardens - Christmas Town! It's an experience that will fill you and your family with the holiday spirit. You can't escape the smell of fresh-baked cookies!
    Christmas Town Carolers

    Day 1

    Pick up your Christmas Town Weekend Admission Ticket so you can enjoy three nights of Christmas fun at a discount! There are great things in store ... Santa Claus each evening, strolling carolers, tree-lighting ceremonies, and even some of the fun Busch Gardens roller coasters you've come to love. Warm, holiday meals are available in the park. In Germany, you'll find a turkey carving station, honey baked ham and chicken and dumplings. YUM! And if that's not enough, Germany also has cranberry sauce and sweet potato casserole!

    Day 2

    Since Christmas Town doesn't get festive until 3 p.m., Colonial Williamsburg is the perfect place to get started. All decked out for the holidays, the historic streets will introduce you to such customs as candles in windows and pineapples incorporated into decorations. Find 18th century gifts for holiday giving as you stroll, and pop into one of the four taverns for a late lunch.

    Visit Merchants Square for more shopping and beautiful decorations before adventuring through places yet visited in Christmas Town.

    Day 3

    Today is a good day to reconnect with America's beginnings at Jamestown Settlement. Visit the Powhatan Indian village, board the Susan Constant, and witness the festivities in the colonial fort.

    The Cafe serves delicious lunches to warm you before heading on to Yorktown Victory Center. There you can see what Christmas was like for soldiers of the American Revolution. The Continental Army encampment will give you a glimpse of winter camp life during war.

    After you've soaked up the history of America's Historic Triangle, Christmas Town awaits! This is your final evening, so absorb the happiness of the holidays and share it at home.
