This holiday season enjoy the 49th annual “Way of Lights” at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois. This mile-and-a-half drive consists of over 1.7 million lights, electro art displays, and life-size biblical statues which take you on a scriptural Journey to Bethlehem. This breathtaking display focuses on the birth of Christ, the one true light of the world.
There’s much more than just lights. Enjoy a delicious buffet (included) at The Shrine Restaurant. The Shrine Gift Shop & Bookstore is the perfect stop for that special Christmas gift for a loved one. Listen to area choirs in the Visitor Center. Be amazed by the professionally decorated trees in the Christmas Tree Room. You may want to enjoy the outdoor live-animal corral where you can pet and interact with a variety of live animals, including riding a camel for an additional charge.
As we depart the grounds, we are surrounded in a fantasy of lights. We will take you through Tilles Park where their yearly display of lights attracts hundreds of visitors each year. View all of this through the large, panoramic windows from inside our comfortable Mid-American motorcoach. (D)
