Edison Ford was chosen by the USA Today "10 Best" editors as one of the 10 best historic homes for the holidays. The short list included The White House, Mount Vernon, Monticello and the Biltmore in North Carolina. Other Florida destinations making the USA Today 10 Best list were The Ca'd'Zan, the spectacular Venetian Gothic mansion and former home of circus tycoon John Ringling and his wife Mable, which offered Sarasota visitors Art After 5 extended hours on Thursday evenings throughout December, and the Vizcaya in Miami, where visitors can see what the mansion might have looked like when wealthy industrialist James Deering decorated it for the holidays while listening to Christmas tunes on the estate's custom-built pipe organ.

During the holidays the homes and gardens of Thomas and Mina Edison and Henry and Clara Ford are seasonally decorated. Throughout the day visitors have the option of a self-guided tour or a guided tour with an Edison Ford site historian. Special holiday tradition tours are at 6 and 7 p.m.

Holiday Nights cost:

  • Self-guided tours: adults $15, children $2 (6 -12);
  • Guided Tours: Adults $20, children $11 (6 -12);
  • Edison Ford Members FREE.

The Edison Ford is open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. The Edison Ford is the winner of the 2009 National Stewardship Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is an official project of “Save America’s Treasures” at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a Florida Historic Landmark and a National Register Historic Site.
