Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem, PA

Christened “Bethlehem” on Christmas Eve 1741, this tradition-steeped town holds one of the most authentic Christmas markets, featuring artisans and glassblowers making glass ornaments on site. Beyond sweet-smelling candied almonds, you’ll also find home-style kettle corn, stuffed pretzels, dipped fruits like caramel apples, and a slew of barbecue options. In addition to sitting on Santa’s knee for the quintessential photo op, kids can also share breakfast with St. Nick. artsquest.org/christkindlmarkt

What to Try: Blowing your own intricately decorated glass ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree.
