It’s Not Christmas In Nashville Until You Do These 10 Enchanting Things
We’re proud of Music City, and it’s during the wintertime that we truly have the ability to shine. It’s not too chilly, not too snowy or icy, so we have festivals and fun that will last you through the holiday and into the new year. Let’s take a look, shall we?
1. Take a chilly hike around Radnor Lake.
The perfect loop is great for hikers of all ages, and it really gets you in the spirit to completely enjoy the wintry chill of our lovely December.
2. Make your way to Opryland to enjoy the Christmas lights.
It's known as one of the most impressive Christmas displays in the city, and it's here that you can wander about for free and enjoy a cozy night by Christmas light.
3. See the Opry at the Ryman.
Every year during the holidays the Opry moves back home to the Ryman, to make way for other holiday events at the Grand Ole Opry. It gives YOU the chance, however, to enjoy a bit of history in the city.
4. Enjoy a Christmas showing at The Franklin Theatre.
They show everything from, "Elf" to "It's a Wonderful Life." Buy tickets early, though - they sell out super fast!
5. See the lights at Cheekwood.
With over one million lights this year, Cheekwood is a stunning thrust back into the past of Tennessee's Antebellum past, flaunting a lovely walk through the grounds and the decorated mansion.
6. Enjoy Monell's Victorian Christmas Dinner.
It only happens during the month of December, and the renowned Monell's family-style eatery pulls out all the stops for their holiday meal.
7. Find a mug of coffee at one of our nationally known coffee shops.
Winter is truly the time for them to shine, and many make up their own holiday drinks to fit the flavor of the season.
8. Get tickets to go see, "The Nutcracker."
You can also enjoy a showing of, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." There are multiple specialty shows that go on across town, and all you have to do is choose a favorite.
9. Enjoy a drive through The Dancing Lights of Christmas at Jellystone Park.
It's $25 for a carload, but whoa is it worth it! Pack that car full of friends and switch the radio over to their station, fixed with coordinating music. It makes for a wild experience!
10. Curl up with a cup of hot cocoa.
You may feel like this is a given - but Fido makes a mean cup of cocoa that's perfect for the intensive sweet tooth.
