It's hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner, but they'll be here before you know it! There are a lot of fun holiday events in or area, and our REALTORS® love helping residents find the most exciting ways to celebrate the season. One of our favorite activities is the Potomac Eagle's Country Classic Christmas featuring the North Pole Express.
Hop aboard the train and ride the rails to the North Pole. Once onboard, there will be sing-along Christmas caroling with musicians and tasty milk and cookies. The most exciting part of the entire ride, however, is the SURPRISE you'll see on your kids' faces when the big guy himself climbs on board. That's right, SANTA will join you and your family for the ride. Not everyone can see him, though. He will only appear to those who truly believe!
The entire family will love hearing the endearing story of how a train saved Christmas. You'll also enjoy the stunning views as the train makes its way through the gorgeous countryside. After you experience this for the first time, you'll want to adopt it as a cherished family tradition that you can carry on for years to come.
The North Pole Express runs each weekend from Friday, November 22nd until Sunday, December 22nd. Shows run at 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m. (check the schedule to confirm dates and times). This top-rated event will sell out, so you'll want to book your tickets as early as possible.
The train ride departs from Moorefield, which is a gorgeous place to live and work. You may want to plan to arrive a couple of hours early so you can drive around and take a look at some of the beautiful Moorefield homes for sale.
Adults can purchase their tickets for just $35 during the day and $52 for evening rides. Children aged 2 to 12 years old are $25 during the day and $42 in the evening. Infants and children under two years old are welcome to ride your lap and are not charged. However, you will still need to reserve a ticket for each child who will attend.

Our REALTORS® understand what it takes to negotiate a home sale, including the signs that it's time to move on to the next option on your list.
