The Local Tourist Ranks Clarksville, TN – Top Christmas Destination

If you’re looking for a festive place to celebrate the holidays, check out the best Christmas towns in the US. From coast-to-coast, travel writers share their favorite place to spend Christmas.

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s kind of a big deal in my house. My husband has been a professional Christmas caroler for 25 years, and in 2016 he launched his own caroling company, The Caroling Connection. I often joke that I’m a caroling widow. I don’t mind sharing, though, because it’s his job to spread joy and who am I to be selfish?

Besides, I live in the Chicago area, and there’s more than enough to keep me busy. The city comes alive during the holidays, with decorations and lights and singing and all sorts of festive joy. While I know Chicago goes all out, I realize it’s not the only place to celebrate, so I asked fellow travel writers to share their favorite Christmas towns.

If you’re looking for the best place to spend Christmas in the US, you’ll find a new holiday destination below.

Clarksville, Tennessee is a magical place during the holiday season.  Located just half an hour from Nashville, this western Tennessee town does Christmas right.  Downtown offers historic buildings and art from sculptures, to fun shops that decorate with creative ways.  Last year one neat store had an upside down Christmas tree and it was quite lovely!

The Customs Museum provides a great history of this river city, where tobacco was Queen, and the Union army once occupied the town. The gift shop has beautiful pottery and more that make great gifts!.

While downtown, take in a Christmas play at the Roxie!  Stay at the Riverview Inn located in the heart of everything, offering walking distance to downtown and the River Walk.  Oh my, the lights along the Cumberland River.  Take a walk and fall in love with the holiday!  With overtwo million lights enjoy this twinkling half-mile lighted river walk where Christmas scenes come to life.

Another way to enjoy the holiday is at the “Trees of Christmas” at the Smith Trahan Mansion. These are just a few of the wonderful ways to celebrate Christmas in this town that goes all out.
