Holiday Celebrations From Coast-to-Coast Offer Families Fun Wonder And Unique Merriment At The Ritz-Carlton

CHEVY CHASE, Md., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. invites guests young – and young at heart -- to establish fun new traditions with extraordinary seasonal offerings.  Properties from the Atlantic Ocean across to the Pacific beckon families to discover unparalleled merriment, while also embracing the true spirit of giving though charitable events.

Fire & Ice at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, Georgia No visit to this year-round lakeside Georgian resort is complete without ending each evening by the fire pit roasting s'mores.  Now through February 24, 2013, The Lodge creates a dreamy 5,000-square-foot ice skating rink in the Pavilion. Healthy winter exercise and fun are accompanied by hot cocoa or hot apple cider. Skating is complimentary for resort guests; non-resort guests' price per session is $30 for children 12 and under; $40 for adults (includes skates).

A truly memorable way to explore the scenic beauty of The Lodge's lakeside setting is on Santa's Segway – each adorned with seasonal decorations, lights and antlers. $135 per rider for 90 minutes, limited availability. Riders must be 12 years or older. The excursion is available daily through December 28 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. by reservation.

Pirates Find Endless Treasures at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida     The S.S. Amelia, a spectacular gingerbread pirate ship, has docked in the Lobby for the holiday season. Made from more than 1,200 pounds of sugar, 3,000 eggs, the S.S. Amelia serves as a festive backdrop for countless holiday memories. The ship departs December 28.

Share a private bedtime story with a buccaneer bearing treats and treasure during our nightly pirate tuck-ins. Milk and cookies are delivered to your room, while Pirate Luis Aury, Princess Amelia and our "mascot," Amelia's  Treasure (a six-year-old blue and gold macaw), read a pirate story and surprise your child with a keepsake treasure chest full of goodies. Tuck-ins are scheduled every half-hour, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. each evening. $50 per child. 24-hour advance reservations are requested.
