Let’s head down to Crown Center and Union Station for their yearly holiday exhibits. The trains, etc. at Union Station, plus this at Crown Center:
Park at Crown Center (since parking is free with validation) and meet at the Gingerbread Station (on the first floor at the very end past the places to eat). We can check out the free area there for a bit, then walk over to Union Station through the Link and see the trains and such. After heading back to Crown Center where we parked we can grab lunch or just head home if us and/or the kiddos have had enough!
