Under $100 / North America

Christmastime in any city is an exciting time of year. The lights, decorated storefront windows and cold brisk air combine together to create a feeling of the holidays. Philadelphia has fun events going on throughout the city for people of all ages to enjoy Christmas joy.

The Blue Cross RiverRink is the go-to place for winter fun. Walking through the grounds is completely free to enjoy. To take a spin on the ice, visitors can pay $4 for a 90-minute session if you bring your own skates or $14 for time on the ice and skate rentals. Guests can also play games, grab some tasty food and sip on alcoholic beverages.

In the center of the city, tourists can browse through small artisan shops at the Christmas Village. The village is free to walk through, but the cost of purchasing food and goods vary by shop. Items for purchase include German foods, crafts, jewelry, apparel and toys. Visitors can ride a carousel and ice skate for a low cost.

Down the road, Macy’s hosts the Dickens Village, taking visitors through the classic story, A Christmas Carol. The story is told through animatronic characters in elaborate scenes. Before going to the village, enjoy a musical show in the Macy’s lobby played on the Wanamaker Grand Organ. The music show is accompanied by a choreographed light show. All events in Macy’s are free to enjoy.
