It’s hard to choose the best part of the holidays. Is it the sights? The sounds? The sweets? The celebrations? Really, it’s a combination of all of them, and you can find all of this and more in locations throughout the Carolinas. Here are some (more!) of the best destinations:
 
National Gingerbread Competition in Asheville
Head to the majestic Grove Park Inn and see some of the most amazing gingerbread houses. Except for their bases, the gingerbread entries are constructed entirely of edible materials. Prizes are awarded in youth, teen and adult categories, and you can check out all of them for free.
 
Enchanted Airlie Gardens in Wilmington
With all of the holiday lights and displays, the half-mile stroll through the gardens is truly magical. Keep your eyes out for Santa Claus!
 
Festival of Lights in Charleston
Millions of multicolored lights in more than 700 displays illuminate three miles of holiday delight. Visitors also can enjoy family activities, shopping, food and entertainment. No wonder it was recognized as “one of the top 10 holiday celebrations” by Coastal Living magazine.
 
Festival of Lights in Tanglewood
Tanglewood Park transforms into a winter wonderland with lights galore and a holiday gift village with plenty of treats.
 
Lights Before Christmas in Columbia
Hundreds of thousands of lights, animated images, visits with Santa and of course, hot cocoa, have made this tradition a family favorite for more than 25 years.
