The hustle and bustle of working, shopping for gifts, and making sure the house is decorated with holiday décor can be exhausting and overwhelming at times so we’ve created a list of family friendly locations that are decked full of cheer and picture perfect. Here are 5 locations to check out over the holiday season!


  • The Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek –The Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek has decorated the structures with traditional Christmas décor that the Cadman, Tyson and Lanier families would have used to dress their homes for the holidays. The Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek is open 7 days a week from 10AM to 4PM (Closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day). Admission is $7 for Adults and $3 for Children (4-12 years old).
