Merry & Bright
What: Who wouldn't want to step into a nostalgic Christmas movie as if it was real life? Now you can at Langley's Martini Studios, a working movie backlot that's lined with old-school storefronts, restaurant facades, brownstone townhouses and even a grand, column-fronted courthouse. Usually used for filming everything from TV shows to Hallmark holiday movies, the backlot's streets and buildings have been fully transformed into a sparkling festive attraction this year––by expert movie industry set decorators who know exactly how to make the holidays look magically merry and bright. Take your time exploring the streets and buildings here and you'll be transported to yesteryear holidays, complete with glowing, vintage-look lights and shimmering decorations. There's also live traditional festive music, a small artisan craft market, some tasty food options (plus hot chocolate) and countless chances to snap lots of unique Yuletide selfies (look out for Santa himself on some nights). Book ahead: this new attraction could easily be the region's hottest holiday ticket this year!
