Take a walk downtown and look around Knoxville’s businesses for the naughty elves sent by Santa. There will be many treats, prizes, and fun along the way until you reach the elves.

Visit Tour de Lights for more fun in Knoxville. Thousands of people ride bicycles throughout downtown and North Knoxville. The fact that there are lights and decorations everywhere is what distinguishes this location.

People are encouraged to decorate themselves and their bicycles in order to win prestigious awards. It is the ideal event for families to enjoy holiday fun together.

Christmas at Graceland
Graceland, Elvis Presley’s mansion, epitomizes Memphis’s glitz and glam, and it decks the halls royally every Christmas season. The annual lighting ceremony takes place on November 18, and the mansion and grounds are decorated with holiday decorations and red velvet curtains, as well as Presley family mementos.

Then, spend three days taking in tours, performances, and festive events. It is one of the best things to do in Memphis during your visit to the city in western Tennessee!

Some of the tours available include Graceland Christmas UVIP, Graceland Christmas, and Dean Z’S Rockin’ Christmas Show, where you can learn more about the mansion’s history and how the King spends his holidays, enjoy shows and music, and take tours around the mansion grounds to see the mesmerizing decorations up close.

Ticket prices range from $43 to $250, and you’ll have the one-of-a-kind opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
