4 New Family Traditions to Start at The Wharf

There are so many great things to do this Christmas season—which means it’s the perfect time to start new traditions.

We’ve got a few suggestions for a night filled with love, smiles and laughter that your family will remember (and repeat) for years to come. Christmas is our favorite time of year, and we want to share our holiday cheer with you at our Winter Wonderland!

1. The Warmth of Family with a View
Even though we live in the South, it gets pretty cold here too. What better way to start off a new family tradition than staying nice and warm than with a delicious cup of hot cocoa from The Southern Grind. Then take a stroll to the Ferris Wheel for a night of fun and laughter with views that are one of a kind. The Wharf’s Ferris Wheel is one of the tallest on the Gulf Coast, and you can even see to the beach from the top!

2. A White Christmas & Sugary Treats
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? That can be hard to find in the South, but we have the next best thing for your new family tradition: a real ice skating rink! The whole family will enjoy lacing up those skates and going for a spin around our ice skating rink (which is the only one in South Alabama, you know.) After the ice rink, wander down to our newest tenant, Kilwins, and try their homemade fudge. Their fudge is made the same way the original recipe was created in 1947…it is a must try!

3. A Holiday Spectacular Show & Carriage Ride
Dance your evening away during the Holiday Spectra Sound & Light Spectacular, or take a romantic ride through the Holiday Spectra Show in a horse-drawn carriage! Whichever you decide, you’ll be making magnificent memories for future traditions to follow.

4. Christmas Magic & 12 Days of Shopping
The magic of Christmas can get pretty busy, since Santa and his helpers deliver presents to the whole world and all. But Santa is never too busy for pictures with all the little ones or the furbabies! Start a new tradition by coming and taking photos with Santa. And since Christmas is tiptoeing closer every day, you may be in need of a few more special gifts, right? Now would be the perfect time to get them: The Wharf will be celebrating 12 Days of Christmas Shopping starting Dec. 13th! Your little ones could even help pick out a present for that someone special.
