Fish River Trees – Summerdale, Alabama


Last weekend we drove the kids to Summerdale, Alabama to check out Fish River Trees Christmas Tree Farm.  We already had our tree up but we wanted to visit this tree farm because we had heard such wonderful things about it.  The kids had so much fun exploring the different tree sizes, watching people cut their own tree down, and, of course, checking out Santa and his reindeer.  Even if you already have a Christmas tree, Fish River Trees is sure to be lots of family fun!

Hop on the train and a take a tour of the property.   


Afterwards, get some hot chocolate and go see Santa and two of his reindeer!



My kids loved wandering through the trees.
