Budgets are tight this year, but at least gas went down, allowing you not to feel too guilty for planning a family outing. Starting this Saturday, Dec. 6 and running through Dec. 21 is the Pawtucket Winter Wonderland in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Dress warm, and visit the town probably only known for feeding the Sox some talented youngins like Ellsbury or Lowrie. This month, Pawtucket dresses up over 400 Christmas trees, 20 Victorian buildings and a talking Snowman reminiscent of Frosty. Free admission and parking, allows you access to free visits and photos with Santa, train rides, hay rides, carousel rides, holiday entertainment and a food court if you get hungry enjoying all these holiday sights and sounds.

Call 401-726-3185 for more information or visit online. [Photo courtesy of Pawtucket Winter Wonderland site]
