  Holly Jolly Holiday Trolley Tour:
A Great Way to kick in the Christmas Season!

By Darlynne Reyes Menkin
San Diego Insider Travel Examiner

For some people, the thought of Christmas means long lines at the store, endless baking and running around trying to finish off that famous "to do" list. But for others, it's a whole different story. For those folks, it's all about spending time with family, enjoying the holiday spirit and doing fun activities like the one we did just the other week. 

This year, Old Town Trolley Tours is doing a wonderful tour called Holly Jolly Holiday Trolley Tour.  It's a great activity for the family, not to mention a good way to get into the holiday spirit. From the moment you step onto the trolley, the Christmas cheer is on.  From the colorful candy canes they hand out to the uplifting holiday music that plays throughout the tour... the Christmas spirit is alive and well on this adventure! We especially liked the song lyric books that were given out, as it allowed us to sing along. The tour guide was also very friendly, informative and had lots of funny stories that complimented the music and tour. Even the guests had a great sense of humor... and didn't have any problems playing along with the tour guide's quirky Q&A games.

My favorite part was seeing all the fantastic Christmas lights that were on display. Garrison Street in Point Loma was a nice touch. Other highlights include the Gaslamp Quarter area and some of the beautiful neighborhoods near Balboa Park. It was a chilly night but it was fine because the trolley was nice & warm.
