Our Historical Greenbrier Holiday tour is a fascinating glimpse into American history, brilliant with the sights and sounds of the Christmas season. The Greenbrier, Washington, DC, Colonial Williamsburg, and Richmond, Virginia all put on their holiday best this time of year. Read on for some of the festivities you may experience while visiting these stops on tour!

The Greenbrier

This world-class resort has been welcoming visitors since 1778. In December, The Greenbrier gets all dressed up, with sparkling decorations, seasonal music, and sky-high Christmas trees – at least one surrounded by a huge model train. There are plenty of holiday activities, too, including carriage rides (sleigh rides, if there’s snow!).
