Make your stay extra “Christmasy” by staying at the Inn at Christmas Place while you are in town.  This hotel is Christmas 365 days of the year!  Their “Sleep in Heavenly Peace” mattresses make your stay extra comfortable and their beautiful Glockenspiel in the lobby plays Christmas carols and strikes hourly until 9 pm daily.  During the month of December, there will also be daily Christmas events for guests.

Get in the spirit of the holidays every day of your visit by taking the family to a different holiday show. Country Tonite, Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud, Dolly Parton’s Stampede and Comedy Barn are ready to entertain you with their best for the holidays.  Most are offering several shows a day so it will be easy to fit into your daily itinerary.

Check out the annual Winterfest that gets better year after year.  Whether you do the driving tour of lights or just enjoy the lights and décor as you are strolling through the town visiting shops or attractions, you will feel the spirit of the season all around.

Take a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and experience the winter season and all of the natural Winterfest Driving Tourbeauty it brings.  Who knows, maybe you will even see a little snow!  It is the perfect way to spend a relaxing day away from all of the hustle and bustle and the perfect quiet time for your family to reflect on what the year has brought.
