One of the joys of a good LEGO set is that they transport us off to another world, one where we can be anything we’d like. So whether you want to live out your Frank Lloyd Wright fantasy or travel to the Taj Mahal, there’s a set of LEGOs to take you there. And even if you want to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, there’s no better cold winter activity than sipping a mug of hot chocolate and getting in a good building session with the whole family.
Whether you are a relative novice or expert builder, LEGO’s Architecture and Landmark sets have a little something for everyone. With hundreds of pieces to click into place, it’s a great activity if you love the satisfaction of building something from the ground up. Here’s a look at some of the top LEGO sets that will satisfy your architecture craving and give you plenty to do over the winter holiday.
