Christmas in Beautiful Grand Rivers
Now that the turkey is consumed and nothing is left but the carcass, it's time to move on to the joy (and pain) of the Christmas season. There is the tree to put up and decorate, shopping for that perfect gift and of course more cooking and eating.
For those of us who love shopping this is our favorite time of the year. For those who do not like to shop it can be a chore that we would rather not do. Some of us fall somewhere in between and enjoy the Christmas season but do it stress-free.
For some reason each year I am drawn to the holiday atmosphere in beautiful Grand Rivers Kentucky. The town is decorated in beautiful holiday lights and the shops are filled with items that anyone would love to receive.
Grand Rivers Festival of Lights featuring over 500,000 lights in Patti's Settlement and downtown Grand Rivers runs through the first week of January. Shops are decorated for the season and filled with lovely gifts.
Grand River’s shops include So Cool Boutique, Ashleigh’s Boutique, The Pink Tractor, Sugar & Spice, Days Past Antiques, Canoe Antiques, Grand Rivers Fudge Factory, Home Place Antiques, Grand Rivers Antiques, Grand Rivers Linen and Towel, Wood-N-Wave Bicycle and Watersports, Jade & Earth Wellness Center & Spa and Marty Colburn Photography Gallery. There are also lots of shops inside Patti’s Settlement.
When you're tired from shopping you can visit one of their local restaurant for a delicious meal. Mr. BBQ's Restaurant and Dockers Restaurant serve a delicious breakfast or lunch. For a unique dining experience visit Patti’s or Mr. Bill’s Restaurant. Both are decorated beautifully for the Christmas season. The gift shop there is great.
For a fun and entertaining experience you must visit Badgett’s Playhouse to see one of their wonderful shows. Several Christmas shows are presented during the season. On Sunday afternoons you can see the Big Band Christmas Show, on Friday and Saturday you can see Variety! Christmas. Also showing is a Tuna Christmas, Sanders Family Christmas, Down Home Country Christmas and there will be one showing Sunday, December 22 of “It’s a Wonderful Life: a Live Radio Play.” Call the box office at 1-888-362-42234 show times and reservations.
If you plan to stay in Grand Rivers for a few days you have many beautiful accommodations to choose from. Green Turtle Bay Resort, Lighthouse Landing Resort, Rose of the Lakes Bed & Breakfast, Grand Rivers Inn and Patti’s Inns and Suites are all good choices.
Whether you're coming for the day or an extended stay you will thoroughly enjoy beautiful Grand Rivers at this time of year.
