Here at Homes at Lake Norman, one thing we love more than Flipping & Shiplap is definitely Christmas Time! Nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains in Bryson City, NC there is a Fun Event for the Whole Family called The Polar Express. Based off of the book this Train Ride Experience takes you through "The North Pole". On your ride you will get to listen to the book The Polar Express, eat Warm Fresh Cookies and drink Hot Cocoa. Then just like in the story all the kids get to meet Santa Clause as well as get a bell at the end. This event is something everyone will truly enjoy!
