Distract your children-turned-detectives from Operation: Find Where Mom Hid the Presents This Year by declaring an outdoor adventure-Mission: Find the Perfect Christmas Tree. First, consult our guide below for farms near you that offer the opportunity to cut down your own evergreen beauty. Next, bundle up and enjoy the great outdoors for a morning, afternoon, or the whole day, and make sure to take advantage of any perks, like free hot chocolate or other goodies. Finally, haul your new piney friend home for a decoration celebration.

All dates are projected and availability is subject to change. We recommend calling ahead before visiting any of these locations.
