The Hermann Wine Trail was fun but I wanted to do one more Christmas activity on this last minute road trip. A simple Google search for Christmas in St Louis brought up the special Christmas lighting at the Botanical Garden. Even more exciting was the result of a Google map search. Where we were at New Haven, Missouri was only a little over an hour from the Garden on just a backroad to I 44 which then exited right to the Garden parking. We are not the most experienced city drivers, especially at night. But, this was a easy destination.
The weather was still beautiful on Sunday evening. The docents positioned around the light trail kept commenting on it. The Garden was prepared for cold weather with bonfires throughout. They even had marshmallows to roast and hot chocolate to buy. The picture of Dan and I was taken by one of the bonfires where we sat and people watched for a spell.
I didn’t take many pictures—well actually I took a lot of pictures but not many turned out. Night pictures are difficult. Hopefully, there are enough to get the feel of the lovely evening.
For more lights, click here or on the picture, then on “slideshow” on the upper right corner of the web page. Enjoy!
