Super Fun Things You Can Do At Fort Campbell This Holiday Season
We have been in the Fort Campbell area for almost eight years now. While we have been here so long because my husband is in the National Guard now, others tend to stick around for a while too. Over the years I have been able to see how this area has grown and every year they seem to add something new.
This winter there have been quite a few things we have done in the area or want to do. So whether you are already here or planning to PCS to Fort Campbell soon, here are some super fun things you can do at Fort Campbell this holiday season.
Go ice skating in downtown Clarksville
There is a brand new ice skating rink in Downtown Clarksville. For $10 a person, you can rent some skates and be on the ice for an hour and 15 minutes. They play Christmas music, and you can kinda believe you are in your own Christmas movie. Here is the holiday schedule and more information.
See the lighted path at Christmas on the Cumberland
If you and your family like lights, Christmas on the Cumberland is a treat. You will be able to walk along the riverfront and check out the displays with one million lights. The display will be up until January 3rd. Here is more information about Christmas on the Cumberland.
See the lights at the Speedway
At the Speedway, you can drive the mile course and see one million lights from the comfort of your car. Cost is $25 per carload, and the lights will be up through New Year’s Day. Here is more information about this display.
Visit ICE in Nashville
Just about an hour away you can visit Nashville and see what they have to offer for the holidays. One popular event is ICE featuring a Charlie Brown Christmas at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. You can save 20% on tickets by using promo code HERO when booking online for ICE as well as for Cirque Dreams Holidaze and the Diamond Rio Holiday & Hits Dinner Show. ICE is a walkthrough holiday attraction kept at 9 degrees with two million pounds of colorful ice sculptures and four two-story tall ice slides.
Visit Santa at the PX
Santa will be at the PX mall until December 23rd. You can get your picture taken, and I have found that overall the wait is less than if you go to the mall in Clarksville. You can also head to Nashville and go to Bass Pro Shops to get a free photo with Santa although there always seems to be a long wait for that one.
