NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For the 33rd year, A Country Christmas is back in Nashville through January 1st. Every year, the Gaylord Opryland Resort brings you dazzling, over the top holiday experiences, and a sleigh-full of fun for the whole family.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year here at Gaylord Opryland Resort," said Jenny Barker, PR Director for the resort. "This has become a tradition for families throughout the southeast, to come every year and experience our 2.3 million holiday lights, to see all the beautiful decorations in our nine acres of indoor gardens, and to really experience all that we have to offer here. We have about a million visitors who will come through our doors between mid November and New Years.”

One million people—but not a one without something to do. Families can tailor their experiences based on what works best for you. 

The Grand Ole Opry House hosts "Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas the Musical," and the event lawn has ice skating, snow tubing, and a snowball toss. The ICE! attraction this year features Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and ice slides that will cause kids and adults alike to drop their jaws.

The Delta Atrium has a day or night Christmas riverboat cruise, and come hungry, because the resort has 16 restaurants, and the chefs have a spread ready for YOU!

But the most popular, and perhaps the most awe-inspiring aspect of A Country Christmas are the lights that are put up around the resort starting in July!

Have a very Country Christmas!
