Winter is coming -- in a nice way, with fewer decapitations and White Walker attacks than that usually portends. In fact, bring on the early season chill: Revel in the early snows, embrace the cush of a puffy jacket, and get psyched for a day trip to a tree farm to cut down the Christmas tree of your dreams. Most farms are within a two-hour drive of the city, and with provided hand saws, you’ll have no trouble getting out into crisp nature, and feeling downright jolly.
In addition to trees, many of the farms also offer hot chocolate, warm apple cider, snacks, bonfires, wine tastings, and horse-drawn wagon rides. This trip is going to be merry and bright, y’all. Check out the list below to find the best Christmas tree farm near you.
