Visitors climb aboard a beautifully decorated trolley for an exciting 45-minute ride.  This tour is filled with loads of interesting information about the city's decision to change the Gatlinburg Christmas Trolley of Lights lighting to LED bulbs. This was a move that now allows the city to light the more than 35 displays for four whole months for the same price they used to pay fort three days of electricity.  (And that, my friends, is a Gatlinburg Green Fact!)  The Gatlinburg Christmas Trolley Tour of Lights has become popular and continues to grow as new displays are added.
