Cleveland has many attractions that sparkle during the holidays. Visit the Cleveland Play House Festival of Trees, Winterfest at Public Square or famous venues like Tower City Center and the Arcade to see the lights, décor and majesty of the holiday season. Catch it all by taking a Holiday Lights Ride on a Lolly the Trolley tour.
“Our Holiday Lights Rides have become an annual family tradition for thousands of Clevelanders,” says Sherrill Paul Witt, president of Trolley Tours. “This is our 25th holiday season and people never seem to tire of riding comfortably on a heated and enclosed trolley to see the city lights and to learn about our wonderful city.”
When it comes to city explorations, the Trolley Tours of Cleveland and its famous cheery red Lolly the Trolley cars specialize in locating great local destinations, especially during the holidays. Take the Tinsel Tales and Trees Tour or the Silver Bells Tour (the two most popular) and enjoy great narrated, one-hour city sightseeing journeys featuring the past, present and future of Cleveland while viewing the area’s brilliant lights displays. Sign up for the Mark Klaus’ Hollywood Christmas Movieland Tour and enjoy the area’s coolest, new film museum of authentic props, costumes and production-still photographs from your favorite Christmas films.
And if you really like movies, consider “A Christmas Story” Tour too, visiting the famous house in Tremont where parts of the movie were filmed. Year-round, Lolly the Trolley navigates the nooks and crannies of Cleveland, touring downtown, North Coast Harbor, the Warehouse District, Ohio City, PlayhouseSquare, University Circle and nearly all of Cleveland’s must-see attractions. Public Holiday Lights Rides run from December 4 to the 27. Prices vary for each tour, but range from $14-$22 according to the public tour chosen. Private charters are also available.
