7 Small Towns In Tennessee Brimming With Christmas Cheer
Tennessee is known for its friendly faces and beautiful places, but all of that seems to amplify during the Christmas season. There’s just nothing like spending the holiday in Tennessee, and what’s more Tennessean than a small, charming, Southern town? We’ve compiled a list of some of the best towns in the state where you and your loved ones can visit and enjoy (and participate in) all of the holiday cheer you can handle.
The City of Jonesborough puts on a whole month's worth of celebrations around their town square, including a big tree, a Christmas parade, and weekly visits from Santa!
2. Leiper's Fork
Known for being one of the most quaint towns in Tennessee, Leiper's Fork turns in to a magical wonderland every year at Christmas. If you can't make the annual Christmas parade, taking a stroll through the town decked out in Christmas lights is always a memorable experience.
3. Discovery Park of America
Okay, so the park itself isn't a small town, but the folks of Union City and people from all around flock to the Discovery Park every year for their Let it Glow Light Show. You can drive through the 650,000+ lights any night but Mondays between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
4. Pickwick Landing State Park
Another non-town, but Pickwick Landing, just outside of Counce, puts up a Christmas light display every year that you and your family can drive through and enjoy.
Gatlinburg is one of the cutest towns in Tennessee no matter the time of year, but during Christmas, the town is absolutely stunning. With lights, trees, and often snow, the town is the perfect spot to be at Christmas.
One of the coolest experiences around Christmas in Tennessee is the Pinnacle Speedway in Lights in Bristol. It's $15 per car to enter, and you get to see over a million lights and drive around on the track!
At the Museum of Appalachia in Clinton, you can take part in an old-fashioned Christmas like you've never experienced before. Visit for the traditional decorations, carols, and treats!
