Celebrating the Holidays
One of the top holiday attractions in Chattanooga is right here on Lookout Mountain, across the street from our luxurious Bed and Breakfast. The Enchanted Garden of Lights at Rock City Gardens is a magical journey that shouldn’t be missed during the holidays. This year, this stunning visual display is celebrating its 21st year of operation, and promises to leave you filled with all the joy and wonder of the holiday season you’ve been looking for. Running nightly until January 2nd, this light display features over 30 individual scenes of the holidays. Not only will you enjoy the lights, but you’ll also be able to visit with Santa, his elves, and other holiday characters, enjoy gingerbread cookie decorating, sip on hot cocoa, get Sugar Plum Fairy Makeovers, and listen to the sounds of the season with the nightly entertainment in the North Pole Lodge. While there, you’ll also want to visit Ruby Falls’ Christmas Underground. As you journey through the ice cave, you will watch gemstone miners play, catch a view of the Northern Lights and journey through the Sugar Plum Fairy Village, until you finally reach Santa at the end. Families can also look forward to a visit from Santa aboard the popular North Pole Limited.
The holidays in Chattanooga aren’t all about families and santa sightings, though. Every year, Chattanooga offers Ice on the Landing. The ice skating takes place at the beautiful outdoor setting of Ross’ landing on the waterfront. This unique, wintertime recreational experience is a highlight in Chattanooga during the holiday season, as ice skating isn’t offered nearby throughout the year. Chattanooga’s beautiful waterfront is also the site of this timeless parade of boats decorated for the holidays, complete with music, lights and lots of fun. You can also take a river cruise with Southern Belle Riverboat’s Christmas Carol Dinner Cruises, or a special ride with Tennessee Valley Railroads and their Christmas Dinner Train, where you’ll savor an exquisite 4-course dinner in a vintage train car that dates back to 1924. No matter how you choose to enjoy this magical holiday season in Chattanooga, we know you won’t be disappointed. Book your room at our beautiful Bed and Breakfast today, so you can start planning those new holiday traditions.
