Dickens Victorian Village (Cambridge, OH)

dickens1_edited.jpg

Enjoy a festive day-trip to Cambridge, OH!  Take a trip back in time and experience old world England as historic downtown Cambridge, Ohio is charmingly transformed into a Dickens Victorian Village. Through mannequin displays throughout the town, you feel as if you are in a Dickens novel!  A guided tour of the Dickens scenes wearing real vintage clothing will be complemented by a chance to see how mannequins are made, at the welcome center. In addition, the Guernsey County courthouse comes alive nightly with thousands of pulsating lights synchronized to holiday music. This magnificent 1881 building jumps into the 21st Century as it is bathed in colored lights, 36 animated light displays, and 15,000 lights outlining the building.  All of this fun and excitement while still enjoying the personal service and years of travel experience you come to expect with All About Destinations!
