"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
December 8th, 2011
In case anyone needed reminding, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. That means kids and teenagers (and college students especially!) are buzzing with joyous energy that inevitably comes with the holiday season. You can channel that energy by hitting up as many local events and festivities as possible, and you can start with Ruby Red Christmas!
Ruby Falls, a vast underground waterfall in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is the ultimate travel destination. It’s got breathtaking sights, zip lines, tours, dining, and activities for all ages. Oh yeah, and a 145-foot waterfall inside a gorgeous mountain. Every December, they host Ruby Red Christmas, a celebration of the season with an abundance of events that families can enjoy together. After a reading of “‘Twas the night before Christmas” by none other than Mrs. Claus, take the special Christmas tour of the waterfall and surrounding cave. The North Pole Workshop offers arts and crafts activities for kids such as constructing their own spectacular gingerbread houses or creating their own tree ornaments. Finally, everyone can experience the magic of a Christmas horse and carriage ride at the end of the evening. With live music, tasty treats, and a castled decked with boughs of holly, this is a celebration you can’t miss.
