Put a Little Christmas in the South!

Just over an hour from our base in Franklin, North Carolina is the largest house in America… the Biltmore House. Experiencing the Biltmore Estate by Candlelight is a southern staple around the holidays and people from far and wide travel to Western North Carolina to get a glimpse of the festivities.

Treasures like the Biltmore House are just one of the things that make Christmas in the South a little more magical.

In Tennessee, my favorite Christmas must-do is Speedway in Lights at the Bristol Motor Speedway. From a snow maker, to an ice rink, to a traditional Nativity, and of course the Pinnacle Speedway in Lights, which is THE Largest holiday light show in the South and one of the largest in the country — this event is fun for the entire family and something that you will want to do year after year.

In Georgia, get a taste of Fröhliche Weihnachten, which is German for Merry Christmas by visiting the tiny town of Helen! The entire town transforms with a festive Alpine cheer for the annual Christkindlmarkt — a tradition that lines the center of the town with gifts, decorations, candied treats, and so much more!

If warmer weather is more your style — Pensacola, Florida is the place to be for Christmas! During the holiday season, the coastal town completely transforms for Winterfest, a festival that features an Elf Parade, the Reindeer Games, a Performance Tour, a Polar Express Tour, a Grinch Tour, and more. Santa will, of course, make his appearance before making his trek around the globe.

Even in the warm southern states, snow finds a way to lawyer the ground for the holidays — like in Andalusia, Alabama. Every weekend in December, Andalusia residents pull out all the stops for Christmas in Candyland. Along with fake snow, a complete candy village is constructed with Candyland cottages and a gigantic Christmas Tree right in the middle of town square.

Doesn’t matter where you go, as long as you are spending Christmas in the South, you are sending it right.
