Winter Wonderland!! In Troutman??

Yeah, I know that this isn't a restaurant review. But in all honestly there won't be many of those this week, because I'll be stuffing my face with cookies, popcorn balls, and more cookies.

But I thought I'd pass along some information that you might find useful. Last night my wife and I drove up to the Zootastic Christmas Wonderland of Lights. The "Zoo" part of the name comes from the fact that in a few months this area will be a semi-large exotic animal collection.

However, during these next couple of weeks it's home to the largest drive-through light collection in the LKN area. (I have done no fact checking to prove the baseless claim that I just made.) According to Channel 36, this massive Christmas light exhibit has " . . . more than a million lights spread out over 40 rural acres off Oswalt Amity Road."

That's one heck of a LOT of lights! I wonder if Duke dedicates a reactor just to this exhibit alone....

But either way, it was very enjoyable. There was still some snowy ice on the ground so the lights looked even more festive. In addition, there are pony rides and a petting zoo for your children. Also, don't forget to get your photo taken with Santa!

Take 77 North to exit 42. Turn left at the light. Turn right onto Oswalt Amity Road. Then turn left at all the lights. You can't miss it.

Cost = $5 per person with a $20 limit per car.
