Taking Photos Of Opryland’s Christmas Lights Display

Where is the best place in Nashville to take a Christmas photo?

You may be surprised to find that it’s NOT the Opryland Hotel! The Opryland Hotel has all kinds of fun, free things to do for Christmas in the Nashville area–but its dark conservatories and artificial lighting make picture taking hard.

Never been to the Christmas light display at Opryland? I’ve included a YouTube video that shows Opryland’s Christmas lights in all their greenhouse glory!

Here are some tips about visiting Opryland’s Christmas light display–and where I think makes the best spot for photos in the Opryland Hotel.

Cut Your Own Christmas Tree At Local Tennessee Farm

Are you looking for a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm in the Nashville area?

Locally grown Christmas trees are better for the environment because they prevent erosion in rocky TN soil and reduces transportation costs.
