Default NC christmas things to do

We have moved from NJ to Taylorsville, just north of Hickory. We are looking for Christmas things to do and places to go. We knew all the places to go in NJ, PA , DE . Now , we need new places to spend December. These can be light displays, candlelight history places, gardens

Thanks

Melissa

OMG CHRISTMAS

It just now labor day. You must work in retail... just kidding

Biltomre tops my list if you want to get in Christmas Spirit. They really go all out.

Here some other ideas.

Forsyth County > Tanglewood Park > Festival of Lights (http://www.co.forsyth.nc.us/Tanglewood/fol_info.aspx - broken link)

just up the road from there if you want a true traditional christmas

Moravian holiday events and performances in Winston-Salem (http://www.visitwinstonsalem.com/holiday/2007/moravian.html - broken link)

take trip to Christmas Town NC Official Web Site

There is oodles of christmas tree farms especially in northern mountain counties .

Check out this thread Christmas in NC

The whole state gets all deck out and loads of events Even a coastal town like Wilmington gets you in the Christmas spirit.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

The Biltmore Estate (Asheville), Tanglewood Park (near Winston Salem), McAdenville (between Charlotte and Gastonia), and Stowe Botanical Gardens (also between Charlotte and Gastonia). All are great, but McAdenville is free. You're in a good location to see all of these with no problem.

Thanks for all of the great places. What is there to do near the Stowe Gardens if we want to go down into that area during the day?

wow, nobody mentioned McAdenville yet? The lights there are awesome every year [a bit of a drive, but worth it]. Tanglewood is good, too. If you're into living history, Old Salem has some neat Christmas programs, too

Agree about Mcadenville. You can also walk the route as well. Its been a while since I last went but it seemed like stepping into another world...lights everywhere, an entire small town completely lit up, Christmas music, very cool.
