Lee’s Summit Magic Tree
The Lee’s Summit Magic Tree is a staple for Christmas in Kansas City. Make sure your family visits the tree while you’re at Christmas in the Park! It’s perfect for holiday family photos… and you can enjoy this happily lit tree with tons of colorful holiday lights! See more information here.
(NOTE: we normally do not recommend driving all the way out to see the tree unless you’re also going to Christmas in the Park, due to the longer drive to get there, as it is a fairly short stop. However, this year there is a Holiday Pop-Up Bar at this location! Check it out here!)
Tours in Kansas Areas (Lenexa, Overland Park, and Prairie Village)

A double cul-de-sac of 23 homes which turns into a winter wonderland each Thanksgiving evening, giving pleasure to the thousands who drive through each night until New Years. We think you’ll love this stop, if you can fit it into your tour!
Nottingham Place has become a fan favorite for our clients over the last several years. While it is a more recent display, it is just as impressive as some of the more well-known attractions!
