Ready for something a little different than every years “loop around the block” look at holiday lights? Check out the Henry B. Plant Museum this month for a Victorian Christmas Stroll.

Travel back to 1891 in the former Tampa Bay Hotel where room after room various 19th century themes take over. Each room is lit by sparkling trees and the Grand Hallway that is reminiscent of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” with antique toys, shiny wrapped gifts and Christmas stockings hung with care.

This year, the museum even created a three-story, fully furnished Victorian dollhouse filled with “burning” fireplaces and hanging chandeliers.

To truly immerse yourself in the holiday, enjoy complimentary spiced cider and Christmas cookies on the veranda. Every evening, join carolers around the 18-foot tree to sing traditional holiday songs.  This is a fun and different way for the whole family to enjoy the holidays together!
