Make GLOW Nashville Your Family’s Newest Holiday Tradition + GIVEAWAY!

If you aren’t in the Christmas spirit yet, be prepared to be overcome with jolliness because it’s kind of hard not to be after visiting this place! Allow me to introduce to you guys GLOW Nashville, the newest holiday attraction to hit the city of Nashville and your NEWEST family tradition! Yes, that’s right, I am claiming this place as your new family Christmas destination because it is SO GOOD y’all.

So what is GLOW? Located at First Tennessee Park, GLOW Nashville features one of the country’s tallest Christmas trees, millions of lights adorning larger-than-life sculptures, epic ice skating and tubing experiences, a life-size Santa’s workshop and many more activities designed to create memories for all ages! It basically feels like you're walking through a winter wonderland of lights and attractions and for me, it was just absolutely PERFECT because anything Christmas related is my Jam!

I'm going to run down a few reasons why GLOW should be your family's newest holiday tradition!

1. They have so many beautiful lights, including lighted tunnels and a sleigh that would be the perfect photo ops for you and your family.

2. Ice Skating is a fun activity everyone can enjoy and they have one of the nicest ice skating rinks I've ever seen with a three story viewing deck right in the middle of it!
3. Winterfest Market is a great Christmas shopping destination! You can find so many different and unique gifts for everyone on your list.

4. Need a break from walking around? GLOW has Santa's Workshop which is really cool because there's entertainment, Santa Claus, and fun for the kids! They also have Mistletoe Café where you can grab a snack and some hot cocoa! Oh, and we can't forget about Mrs. Claus Bakery! I had the most delicious and warm caramel cookie there!

5. Reindeer Run Tube Park is three stories and 170 feet long! This is included in your admission price and so you and your children and slide all night long!

6. Hanging with all adults? Cool! Head on over to Blitzen's Band Box for some holiday cocktails, chill under a blanket or by the fire pit, and get the BEST views of the entire GLOW experience. I preferred their 'Holiday Magic' cocktail which was hot cocoa with Bailey's, but my husband preferred the 'Merry & Bright' cocktail which was warm apple cider with Crown Royal Apple.
MMM MM MM! They really have something for everyone!

There's SO MANY amazing things to do and see, and I could really go on and on about it, but I really think you just have to experience the magic for yourself! Visit GLOW Nashville this holiday season with your entire family. I promise you will have a wonderful time! When you go, make sure to download the GLOW app. It will give you a map of all of the attractions, there's a photo challenge, plus much more.
