Okay, so of COURSE you know about the Christmas lights and decorations at Gaylord Opryland Resort (and they're great), but did you know there's a TON of other holiday light displays around town if you want something a little different?
For example, you can head out to Lebanon and check out the Dancing Lights of Christmas. The drive-thru display features 1.5 million lights set to music, and is one of the most well-known displays around town. It used to be at Jellystone Park (near Opryland), but moved out to it's new home at the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Lebanon last year. It'll cost you $25 per car, but it's well worth it.
If Lebanon's a little far for you to drive, you can stay right here in Nashville and check out the huge display at Cheekwood - not only will you see 2 million lights on the grounds, you can meet Santa, hear the sounds of carolers inside the mansion, see some live reindeer, and down a s'more or ten. Admission is $22 for adults and $17 for kids, but the itty bitty ones (under 3) are free.
Williamson County boasts the FrankTown Festival of Lights, new this year at AG Expo Park. Similar to Dancing Lights, it's a drive-thru display set to music, open every night starting at 6pm.
Those are the big ones, but there's plenty more!
The Music City Light Show is really just a single house in Antioch, but it is one IMPRESSIVE single house (video below).
