Global Winter Wonderland, CalExpo

   Imagine traveling the world in one day, without ever stepping foot on a plane. Some of the worlds most historic and beautiful monuments and structures all accessible for your admiration in one location at a fair price. The Christmas season custom dictates that the world be lit up by bright lights and inflatable Santa’s everywhere, but what if you’re being deprived of that sweet sight? Maybe, like me, you’re overcome with laziness and paralyzed by the cool temperatures to border the windows with Christmas lights. Or perhaps your neighbors don’t share the same spirit and don’t mind that during the happiest time of the year the streets are as dark as always. For those disappointed souls whose dormant inner child is awakened at the sight of beautifully assembled Christmas lights and whom haven’t visited the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Wall of China, etc Cal Expo’s Global Winter Wonderland (Sacramento, CA) is your one way ticket to just that in awe striking, breathtaking, luminous lanterns.

Feast your eyes on miniature, but aesthetically pleasing renditions of numerous worldly recognized and admired structures in one convenient location. The wonder doesn’t end there though, aside from the views there’s also carnival rides for the thrill seekers, the conventional carnival snacks and shows that are sure to entertain all who visit. One of my personal favorites was the section featuring zoo animals and pink trees. Children are sure to love it for the exposition also includes reindeers, Santa’s house and a full section of dinosaurs. Adults will enjoy the excitement on the children’s face along with the detail of each lantern. </span><span class=”s2″>I encourage all visitors that aren’t afraid of heights, to ride the ferris wheel and experience the full beauty of the lights from up high, I assure you that you won’t be disappointed.
