ROCK CITY Enchanted Garden of Lights is a holiday favorite of ours. I tell everyone to go to Rock City because of the fantastic views any time of the year but this month it’s transformed! Explore the Enchanted Rock City Gardens | Celebrating 90 Years (

From November 18, 2022, through January 1, 2023, the Land of Gnomes becomes magical for all ages. Register ahead unless you have a season pass. Enjoy the icy lights in the Arctic Kingdom, although I prefer to do this on a warmer night. You can go on a cold night to make it feel legit but having grown up in a colder climate, I love that Tennessee has fun holiday traditions without really having to freeze! On a very chilly night you can stay inside your car and drive through…

NOOGA LIGHTS AT CHESTER FROST PARK from November 14 -December 31, 2022. Nooga Lights | Chattanooga’s Drive-Thru Holiday Lighting Spectacular Prepay for tickets online. At $30 per car you may want to fill the car up because it is a quick tour through the park. There were some wows from the 6 years old but honestly the best car display was free…

HOLIDAY WHOVILLE AT THE CANYONS This upscale neighborhood in Hixson really had our grandson’s attention! Many of the houses were decked out in Grinch themed decor and there was even a live Grinch in one of the yards. I kept wondering where they bought all the …stuff. But I didn’t ask out loud, Christmas magic and all that and the Grinch was kind enough to acknowledge us! There is a police presence and many cars driving through.

ASIAN LANTERN FESTIVAL AT CHATTANOOGA ZOO Chattanooga Zoo ( This new attraction has 38 huge lanterns depicting animals plus interactive and moving displays. I am always up to see the coyotes and cougars especially at night when they are active. Like most urban zoos, Chattanooga is a small zoo and the stroll to see all the lanterns is nice for all ages.

ANIMATED CHRISTMAS WINDOW DISPLAY EPB at 10 W MLK BLVD Every year EPB entertains the public with displays on the Broad and Market side windows. After dinner downtown this is a great destination for a walk in the big little city!
