The weather was sunny, windy and very cold. I wore two shirts and a fleece, but never warmed up. I needed lined gloves, mine weren't. DRESS WARMLY in the winter. .

Everything about the visit was wonderful. After the official tour of the mansion, we were on our own to take in everything else -- and after three hours the only reason we left was because we were hungry. We four adults and 2 grandchildren (ages 8 & 11) thoroughly enjoyed it, and the kids can't wait to return. I would suggest that children not be younger than 7. However, adults will enjoy the Christmas event with or without children.

The weather was wet and mild. I wore boots but they got muddy so maybe older running shoes would have been a better choice..

The weather was cold and sometimes windy. I wore Jeans, wool socks, boots, a thick sweater, a heavy coat and gloves. I wish I had a scarf and hat with me. Most of the tour is outside .

Eat before you go as there's no food to buy. If you want to eat at the restaurant next door, you should book far in advance. They were fully booked a couple of weeks before our tour.

The parking lot across the street was free. There's no public transportation so you need to drive.

Take the yellow line to Huntington, then the 101 bus. Takes about an hour.
