    The Forest of Lights at Tall Pines Players Club

    If you feel like making a trip to Friendsville Pennsylvania, just outside of Montrose, check out the Forest of Lights at Tall Pines Players Club. You drive through portions of the golf course that are lit with different light displays. Then you can stop at Santa's Workshop before you leave where the kids can meet Santa, enjoy some hot chocolate and s'mores, and even write a letter to Santa while you are there.
