Oglebay Winter Festival of Lights


Photobucket

Located in Wheeling, West Virginia is the 1,700-acre Oglebay Resort and Conference Center. The resort, once the summer estate of rich Cleveland, Ohio industrialist, Earl W. Oglebay, has since been transformed into a world class, four-season resort. This beautiful estate and model farm was willed to the people of Wheeling by Mr. Oglebay in the late 1920ĺs. Photobucket

PhotobucketThe modern resort and conference center boasts luxury accommodations at the 271 room Wilson Lodge, as well as, cottages, estate houses, and premium cottages. Lodging to please every taste. Recreation abounds including: championship golf courses, luxury spa, stables, the Good Zoo, the Mansion Museum (Mr. Oglebayĺs summer home), Glass Museum, Environmental Center, Artisan center, specialty shops, fine dining, tennis, walking paths and nature trails, gardens, skiing and snowboarding, swimming and more.

Photobucket Each year for the winter holidays Oglebay sponsors the Winter Festival of Lights. A magical, sparkling winter wonderland of lights enjoyed by all ages. This annual holiday light show is one of the nation's largest, covering more than 300 acres over a six-mile drive throughout the resort. The Winter Festival of Lights is listed as one of the best Christmas light shows in the country. Something new is added every year. This was my first year to visit and it was spectacular.
