We'll never forget watching Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) take his family out to see the Griswold family Christmas tree in 1989's National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Luckily, a trip to the best Christmas tree farm near you won't involve hiking through snow and getting frozen from the waist down. And if you forget to bring your saw like Chevy's character did in the classic Christmas movie, don't stress. Many of these spots provide saws, chop your tree for you, or even offer pre-cut Christmas trees. And if you're lucky, some even offer free food and festive winter activities to enjoy during your visit.
From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, many Americans are searching for the perfect Christmas tree to kick off the winter season. Whether you've already pulled your ornaments out of storage, or have no clue where to start, we've mapped out the best Christmas tree farms in every state. See which one is nearest to you, and you'll be that much closer to a beautiful tree (and probably a cup of free cocoa!). So don't be like Clark, and find your perfect tree at a farm that has plenty of Christmas fun for the whole family.
