We have a Christmas tree lot about three blocks from our house where we have gotten our tree for the last couple years. We walk by the lot several times a week, so they kids were very impatient about going to get a tree.
We don't have a ton of room to put a tree and the lot was mostly out of the smaller trees, but we found one that didn't totally overwhelm the living room.
I love the view from the lot. It is on Santa Monica Boulevard and it is fun to be standing in a forest of trees on the busy street.
