Holiday Trips

Relax all around Alton this holiday season for a memorable holiday getaway.

Relax all around Alton this holiday season for a memorable holiday getaway. Here, you will be able to check everyone off your shopping list with great gifts at specialty shops throughout the region.

In between stops to the shops, the calendar is packed with holiday events — home tours, chocolate tastings, snowflake festivals, arts & craft shows, theater productions, choral concerts and much more.

Start your holiday cheer with an illuminating drive through this year's Christmas Wonderland light display. This display includes over 3 million lights that twinkle in Rock Spring Park. You can take a drive, walk or ride on a carriage through Christmas Wonderland, which is open nightly Nov. 29 through Dec. 29.

Don't forget to check in to our specialty stores to find that perfect gift for that special someone. Rare depression glass, hand spun pottery, unique jewelry, homemade fudge and one-of-a-kind apparel will show the thought and love you put into selecting each gift. Giving a relaxing getaway package as a gift is always a great idea. From the pampered elegance offered at a bed and breakfast inn, to the warm rustic surroundings of a cabin on the bluffs, there are plenty of getaway packages from which to choose.
