The Best Places to See Christmas Lights

One of our favorite things about the holiday season is Christmas lights.  And we are so lucky to live here because Nashville and Middle Tennessee have some of the BEST Christmas light displays. Go off the beaten path this season.  Dress the kids in their jammies, throw some hot chocolate in a thermos and load up the minivan. Pick a place you have never visited and create some holiday memories for your whole family.
