$26 for a Three-Day Christmas Town Visit for One ($35 Value)
This ticket grants three consecutive days of admission to Busch Gardens' Christmas Town, a family-friendly holiday spectacle now in its fourth festive season. Guests can discuss the finer points of the Christmas lists with Saint Nick himself during a trip to Santa's Workshop, a North Pole outpost filled with treasures and trinkets from around the world. The Mistletoe Marketplace plays host to a traditional German holiday market packed with hand-made crafts from local artisans. In Ice Palace: A Penguin Paradise, guests can also meet and snap photos of real-life denizens of the Antarctic. The fun continues after the sun goes down. Then, the town's 50-foot Christmas tree sparkles to life with lights that dance to a booming musical score. The rest of the park lights up as well, rivaling the starry night sky and enticing guests to stroll through the twinkling expanse. See the park's holiday schedule here.
