When it comes to choosing a destination for a holiday getaway, Tennessee might just be the place to be for you and your family. From the melodious streets of Nashville to the wintry beauty of the Smoky Mountains to the scenic city of Chattanooga, Tennessee has a lot to offer when it comes to making holiday travel memories. See below for a few destinations where you can #StaySonesta there.
Located minutes from the Hamilton Place Mall, the largest shopping mall in southeast Tennessee, Sonesta Select Chattanooga welcomes shoppers with a special package that includes grab-and-go breakfast and snacks to keep you fueled during your retail revelry. In addition to shopping, nearby you’ll find plenty of holiday magic in Chattanooga, including a visit to Ruby Falls, which offers the opportunity to see a gorgeous underground waterfall, in addition to the Ruby Falls Castle. While in Chattanooga, you’ll also want to add a stroll along the Walnut Street Bridge, one of the longest pedestrian-only bridges in the world, which is adorned in twinkling snowflakes for the season.
Music City is a destination year-round, but it is extra merry during the holiday season. In addition to a large variety of concerts and music events for the winter holidays, Nashville offers beautiful light displays such as the one at Cheekwood Estate. Here, in addition to enjoying a million lights, you can also visit the Reindeer Village, Children’s Wonderland, and a Holiday Marketplace. Nashville is also a destination for sports lovers. The US Figure Skating Championship and Music City Bowl are just two upcoming events in the area.

When you make Knoxville your home base during the holidays, you’ll be an easy drive or shuttle trip from Pigeon Forge, known worldwide for its shopping and Christmas celebrations. Pigeon Forge was voted one of the top shopping spots in the South by Southern Living readers, and during the holidays its five million sparkling lights make it a sight to be seen. The Island, Pigeon Forge’s newest entertainment and shopping destination, is a must-visit.
