12 Christmas Town USA North Carolina.jpg

McAdenville is so into the holiday that it renames itself Christmas Town USA for the month of December. It is located close to the more famous destination in the state Charlotte. Hundreds of thousands of people visit during the last month of the year – 600,000 last year, compared to a local population of about 650 people – to marvel at the stunning lights the town puts up every year. About 400 trees are lit in downtown alone.
