The Mission Inn in Lights

Saturday night we visited the historic Mission Inn in Riverside for it's annual holiday light spectacular. We went with Nancy and Bill on a very cold evening. I'm not kidding, it was 39 degrees! I guess if I can do this, I can handle Rome next year!

Inside the beautiful inn, EVERYTHING was decorated for Christmas!

We stopped for a drink in one of the festive bars while waiting for our dinner reservation across the street at Mario's. It was such a lovely setting! Wouldn't it be romantic to take a carriage ride in one of these?

I saw a TV special on the Mission Inn's Christmas lights last year and would love to visit. Your photos made it all seem so real. Mille grazie,

Nancy

THIS is what I call going all the way! Looks like fun! Are you planning on Christmas in Rome next year?

Amazing. If that doesn't put one in the holiday spirit I don't know what will.
