A Down-Home Christmas in
Cumberland County

Christmas Lights Denton Ridge

Throughout the greater Fayetteville area, we are finding any excuse to celebrate the season every day this week. Set aside the shopping list, grab the coats, and load up the car, because we are sharing a final Christmas week countdown. Whether you are visiting our area or entertaining family here, we have the perfect holiday itinerary, full of delightful hometown happenings.

December 20:
Experience a down-home Christmas in the magical setting of Christmas Lights at Denton Ridge, located in the Town of Linden. Children delight in exploring the “village”—complete with a live nativity scene, vintage farm equipment, Santa’s workshop and more. Be sure to stop by the barn to visit the village’s furry residents, especially the infamous “Kermit the Goat.”

December 21:
Retreat to the outdoors on a Winter Solstice Walk at Carvers Creek State Park, in the Town of Spring Lake. For this first day of winter, a park ranger will be leading an educational walk. Take in the unique beauty of this 4,000-acre park while the ranger teaches the group about tree identification.

December 22:
Visit Paradise Acres to experience Christmas in Paradise in the Town of Hope Mills. This family-owned-and-operated venue is showing off with 12 acres of lights, the Paradise Acres Express and a live nativity scene. Plan to feed the whole family, as well, on the delicious Holiday Buffet.

December 23:
Cheer on our hometown hockey team, the Fayetteville FireAntz, as they battle it out against the Macon Mayhem team at Fayetteville’s Crown Coliseum. Fans may also enjoy dinner and drinks at the Coliseum’s restaurant, ESPN Radio Upper Deck. The theme of the game is “Ugly Christmas Sweater Night,” so be sure to don your ugliest version of grandma’s sweater.

December 24:
Take in the holiday classic, It’s a Wonderful Life (1946), on the big screen at Millstone Theatre (14), located in Hope Mills’ Millstone Towne Centre. The story of George Bailey and his impact on the small town of Bedford Falls is timeless. If you have that last-minute gift to find, pop in some of the unique boutiques and shops that are also located in Millstone Towne Centre.
