As you know, I love cheap and free outings to do with my toddler. Here are three more holiday-related cheap and free things to do in the Portland area as we get ready to celebrate Christmas. Can you believe we’re less than two weeks away? It will be a miracle if the mini tree we put up survives until then.
- Christmas in Dairyville at the Alpenrose Dairy
Totally free, this is a great option for the animal-loving toddler in your life. Alpenrose Dairy transforms into Dairyville with vintage storefronts where you can enjoy refreshments, choir performances, holiday movies and visit Santa.
- The Santa Train (December 15 only)
Watch Santa arrive on a vintage train at the Vancouver, Washington Amtrak station. Kids can enjoy hot chocolate, cider and cookies for free.
- The Lights on Peacock Lane
Walk or drive through this neighborhood of brightly lit homes. Free.
