‘Tis the season for holiday decorating, and as it happens a getaway to Norwalk, Connecticut—and to Hotel Zero Degrees, of course—is an excellent place to outfit yourself with the necessary supplies.
For many (though of course not all), foremost among those supplies is a Christmas tree. As a guest of ours here at Hotel Zero Degrees Norwalk, you’ve got a variety of Christmas-tree farms within easy reach. You can check out a comprehensive list of farms in Fairfield County over at Kids Out & About, but we thought we’d spotlight a couple of especially close-by options—and, just for good measure, a popular purveyor of holiday gifts and décor.
In operation since 1769—not bad, huh?—this dairy farm first began growing Christmas trees for sale in the 1920s. Maple Row Farm is open every day until December 25 from 9 AM to 4:30 PM, giving you the chance to select the perfect festive conifer for your needs: a balsam fir, Norway spruce, or any of a number of other classic possibilities.
Besides cutting your own Christmas tree, you can also enjoy hayrides and other festive fun on weekend visits to Maple Row Farm.
This year-round nursery goes into full-on holiday mode this time of year, and in addition to Christmas trees, wreaths, and garlands you can shop for all sorts of ornaments and other holiday gifts.
Reynolds Farm Nursery & Country Garden Center is open from 8 Am to 6 PM Mondays through Saturdays, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Sundays.
Set in the oldest house in Wilton, the Historical Christmas Barn is a decades-old institution offering a dazzling variety of eclectic holiday decorations. The wide-ranging selection includes Inge-Glas ornaments handcrafted in Germany, those much-loved Byers’ Choice carolers, and the Merck Family’s Old World Christmas series of ornaments and accessories.
Check out the Historical Christmas Barn’s merry inventory Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 AM to 5 PM and Sundays from 11 AM to 5 PM.
