The picturesque Christmas town of Burlington is dotted with rolling hills and a beautiful and historic township. You’ll love our private and secluded B&B with a range of suites to choose from. Come and see us this Holiday Season and see why Christmas in Kentucky and Christmas in Cincinnati is always so special.

Christmas in Cincinnati at Fountain Square

Downtown Cincinnati is always a great Christmas town, with outdoor festivities, restaurants, and streetlight displays that you can enjoy simply by walking around and exploring.

We’re just across the river from Cincinnati. You can relax in luxury at Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast and spend your evenings checking out the Christmas town.

We’re just a 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati, where you’ll find plenty to do leading right up to Christmas Day. Fountain Square is one of my favorite places for a romantic and exciting evening in the snow under the Christmas Lights. Christmas in Cincinnati is always memorable. The Ice Rink and Fountain Square with the big tree are open daily. Throughout December, the rink is open until 9:30 PM with skating and bumper cars.

From the end of November to mid-December, Fountain Square hosts its annual Winter Wonder Lights show. This impressive light display dances across the rink every 90 minutes, creating a mesmerizing spectacle that really gets you into the spirit for Christmas in Cincinnati.

Drive Through a Winter Wonderland at Boone County Fairgrounds Right Next Door!

Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are perfect for the authentic look and feel of a winter wonderland. This is on display at its best at Light Up The Fair next door in Burlington KY

This is considered one of the best drive-through light displays, and one of the best Christmas towns in the area. Light Up The Fair is a drive-through light show covering a full two miles of custom displays amongst the barns and corals and hopefully some fresh snowfall. There’s something different here every year, so even if you’ve made the trip to this Christmas town before, you can see dazzling new sights for Christmas in Kentucky.

Explore ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum

The Creation Museum is just a 15-minute drive through beautiful rolling countryside from Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast.

This is one of the best places to visit when you spend Christmas in Kentucky. The ChristmasTown event has free entry for the Garden of Lights, Live Nativity performance, the Eden Animal Experience, Children’s Playground, and the Encounter the Wonder 3D SFX Show. The Planetarium Show and Glice® Skating experience are reasonably priced for an affordable day of ChristmasTown fun.

The Creation Museum is a wonderful way to experience Christmas in Kentucky and the Ham/Turkey Christmas meal is perfect for the festive season so be sure to try it when you plan a trip out here.

Check the Creation Museum website for opening times and event hours as there are usually a few days of the Christmas Season when attractions are closed to the public.

See This Year’s ChristmasTime Event at the Ark Encounter

If we’re talking about the best Christmas towns in the region, we can’t leave Williamstown out. Just a 35-minute drive from our luxurious B&B in Burlington, it’s home to the one-of-a-kind Ark Encounter theme park.

You can check out the ChristmasTime 2021 ChristmasTime Event at the Ark Encounter on most days from late November to December 30 from 5:30-8:30 PM. Please check the calendar on the Ark Website for excluded days.

The ChristmasTime event at the Ark Encounter is always memorable and it’s family friendly. Nobody ever tires of Christmas lights and the ones at the ChristmasTime event at the Ark Encounter are among the best you’ll see in America. The light show is projected onto the Ark itself, with brilliant displays in ever-changing rainbow colors.

There’s a ChristmasTime event at the Ark encounter for everyone. Beyond the light show, there are live ChristmasTime music programs, animal presentations, and the jaw-dropping Encounter the Wonder ChristmasTime video presentation that the park displays on a 70-foot-wide LED screen, one of the largest of its kind.

The park also has all its usual attractions so you can make your own ChristmasTime event at the Ark Encounter. The VR Show is unlike anything that you can experience. Talk to me or any of the team at Willis Graves to learn about the upcoming ChristmasTime event at the Ark Encounter. We can plan your day trips, give you a hand with directions or car rentals, and you could even take a packed lunch, charcuterie, fruit, and cheese to go. I prepare everything myself in our Gourmet Kitchen right here at Willis Graves.

Christmas in Kentucky is so much more exciting when you include places like Williamstown and the Ark Encounter on your to-do list.
