Rent a California Timeshare and Watch the Christmas Parades

The day after Thanksgiving officially opens the Christmas season, so it's not too early to start dreaming of those sugar plums and make plans to take the family to see Christmas parades. You'll find an exciting and unique selection in California. Rent a timeshare for a budget-friendly vacation and have a great kick-off for your family's holiday season!

The Hollywood Christmas Parade has been marching right through downtown Hollywood for years. This is one of the most anticipated holiday parades in California because of the many big-name celebrity participants. You never know which ones of your favorite stars will show up! This year's Grand Marshall is Susan Lucci. The 2009 parade will be held on Sunday, November 29th. For best viewing plan on purchasing grandstand seats (tickets are now on sale). Proceeds from this parade go to the Feed the Children charity organization.

Of course one of the most entertaining Christmas parades is the Christmas Fantasy Parade at Disneyland. Looking great in their finest holiday outfits, every one of your favorite Disney characters will help you get in the Christmas mood. Read Disney’s Winter Wonderland for more details on how to have a magical family vacation. See Anaheim timeshares.

Newport Beach
Just down the coast is the Newport Beach Boat Parade with hundreds of boats of all shapes and sizes decked out in dazzling Christmas lights. This parade actually began at the turn of the 20th century with 9 small water craft, and has grown into a world-renowned holiday event with over 1 million spectators. The boat parade is a 5-day event beginning the 3rd Wednesday in December. Learn more about staying at the Marriott Newport Coast Villas.

Santa Cruz
A fun variation on Christmas parade viewing is when the "parade" is stationary and the spectators move! Try it yourself by riding the Roaring Camp Railroads in northern California at Santa Cruz, just over an hour's drive from San Francisco where you can rent a timeshare. Travel on the "Holiday Tree Walk" train, an old-fashioned steam engine train that takes spectators past festively lighted Christmas trees atop Bear Mountain. The "Santa Cruz Holiday Lights" train carries you in vintage train cars adorned themselves with thousands of brightly lit Christmas lights. You'll roll past Santa Cruz houses bedecked in their holiday finest. On both train rides you'll sip hot cider and munch on delicious Christmas cookies while hobnobbing with Santa and Mrs. Claus. See San Francisco timeshares.
