New! Winter Lights at North Carolina Arboretum

Winter Lights at NC Arboretum in Asheville
New in Asheville for this holiday season is Winter Lights at the North Carolina Arboretum. It opened November 22 and runs through January 4, 2015. Visitors walk through a botanical Christmas wonderland with thousands of lights in the gardens.

The Arboretum worked with Jerry Stripling, former designer and manager of holiday decorations for Walt Disney World®, to create a very magical experience. This new light show definitely enhances the natural beauty of the gardens and landscape. Also enjoy local art for sale in the gift shops, music by a DJ in the Courtyard, and fire pits to create your own s'mores. The Savory Thyme CafĂ© offers food and beverages, including a hot chocolate and coffee bar.

The light show is open every night, 6-10 PM. Advance tickets are required. Prices are
  • Individual (12 years or older) $18
  • Children (ages 5 to 11) $16
  • Children age 4 & under FREE
The North Carolina Arboretum is in south Asheville. From I-26, take Exit 33 and follow NC 191 South for two miles to the entrance on right.
