One of the things I truly love about living in the Pacific Northwest is that there is so much to do at Christmas time. In fact, sometimes I think there is too much to do and not enough time!
This city is simply magical at this time of year; and in my opinion, one of the most beautiful things to see are the Christmas ships. No where else in the world can you find something like this!
Every night from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve, Argosy Cruises hosts a parade of ships spreading Christmas cheer all over the Northwest.
There are many ways to enjoy these festivities. One way is to decorate your own boat and join the parade, or you can buy a ticket to ride aboard one of the ships. We have ridden on the main ship which included a delicious dinner, fun games, activities for kids, a full choir and last but not least, Santa Claus!
A third way to enjoy this Christmas ships is to go to one of the many beaches that they will dock at. Be sure to check the schedule online and dress warmly! Here you can stand by a cozy campfire, listen to the carols while roasting marshmallows and sipping (free) hot chocolate. It’s so magical and festive!
If you are looking for a wonderful Christmas activity for people of all ages, I would definitely recommend this! It’s one of our families favorite traditions!
