We've put together a list of Christmas card worthy spots for Christmas memories that will last a lifetime. 


Life size ornaments at the North Pole Express

You would need one big tree to hang these ginormous ornaments! Luckily for you, these giant ornaments make for the perfect backdrop for a fun photo with the family. Stop by the Grapevine Vintage Railroad to get the perfect shot.

The Lancaster Theatre

Shake, rattle and roll your way over to the Lancaster Theatre and snag a selfie with Elvis. We hear that he loves it when visitors stop by with their favorite tacky Christmas sweaters on. Just remember to get your pics during regular business hours.
