The Winter Walk In Nashville That Will Positively Enchant You
“Walking through a winter wonderland…” – it sounds perfect and lovely in a song, doesn’t it? Something about snow and chilly weather and bundling up against the cold. Tennessee is located in the American south, so it doesn’t get SUPER cold down here, but at Cheekwood? You can have your winter wonderland all laced in the stunning lights of Christmas. Wander from November to December, dear ones – here’s all the information you need!
The Cheekwood Estate & Gardens is arguably one of the most beautiful spaces in Nashville. The stunning grounds make for a beautiful afternoon spent in the springtime sun, and most love to wander the gardens during the warmer months.
Although you're most likely looking to the gardens for a summer day, the Cheekwood Holiday Lights make for one of the most beautiful displays in the state. And, of course - that would be in the heart of winter.
Boasting over one million lights - yep, one million. - the Holiday Lights at Cheekwood is a Nashville tradition that routes you through the prettiest one mile trail in the state.
Wander down the well-lit trail and listen to Christmas music that floods the entire estate - it's a truly magical experience, one that culminates in s'mores pits and REAL reindeer that will enthrall and excite.
The Cheekwood Mansion itself is opulently decorated with holiday cheer, filled with joyful carolers and bursting with light and warmth.
Bring the kids along so they can meet Santa every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday leading up to Christmas. Plus, it doesn't cost extra! There won't be a professional photographer, though, so make sure to bring your own to snap away.
Enjoy seasonal drinks and gape in awe at the poinsettia tree, made up of 500 stunning red flowers. You can host your own party on the property or show up for Breakfast with Santa - it all depends on what you're looking for this holiday season.
You can visit the lights from November 24th to December 31st, from 5pm to 10pm. Keep in mind that the trail is closed on Monday evenings, and you'll want to check their main website for special evening events.
If you get hungry afterwards, you should visit one of
these fabulous Nashville restaurants – they’re absolutely wonderful.
