1. Holiday Lights at Cheekwood - 1200 Forrest Park Drive
Cheekwood boasts 750,000 lights every year in their holiday display, a walk-through trail that carries you through the grounds and up to the mansion. There are even live reindeer and s'mores pits!
2. Lights on Old Charlotte - 2613 Old Charlotte Pike
A helicopter sized manger, 65,000 lights and a Christmas tree that stretches TWENTY FEET into the chilly December air is all that we need to convince us to visit. This classic Franklin display is just south of Nashville, and the drive down is positively darling.
3. Lipton Lights - 213 Lipton Court
The Lipton Lights show is choreographed to music and has been running since 2008. This flawless Tennessee tradition is also used to help local charities, and if you bring a couple of bucks to donate every penny is sent off to those in need. What a great cause.

For the sixth year in a row, Big 98 WSIX brings you synchronized music to the thousands of lights on display at Jellystone Park.

6. Gill's Bright Lights - 288 Lake Terrace Drive
Lookin' for 50,000 lights SYNCHRONIZED with your favorite Christmas music? This Hendersonville favorite is a great spot for your tiniest littles, and it oozes Tennessee hospitality.
