Starting November 8th, Gatlinburg turns into a winter wonderland with Christmas lights for the season. The best way to see the lights is on the trolley ride of lights. The trolley picks you up at the Gatlinburg welcome center at light #5 at 6:30pm, 7:30pm and 8:30pm. Children under 3 are free if they sit on the parent’s lap. Cost is $5.00. For reservations call the Gatlinburg welcome center at 865-436-0535. November is a great month to see the lights as it is not too cold.
