Have you been wondering where you can find local outdoor Christmas light and decoration displays near you? You have several options for locating the best displays that you and your family can enjoy.
Check Bronners.com for the brightest Christmas light displays throughout the country. You will see a map of the United States that has places marked with stars. If you click on a star it will take you to the address of the lights location and a description of what the home is decorated with. People can also write comments about what they think of the display because a picture of the display pops up for people to see. This is a cool idea and a neat way to locate local Christmas light and decoration displays near you. You can even post your own home on this site!
Sometimes organizations that put up light displays donate proceeds to a charity. Pack up the hot chocolate and cookies, pop some Christmas music into the minivan, and take a neighborhood tour for holiday cheer.
Another way to find Christmas light displays in your area is to check your local television stations. Very often TV websites will have lists of local streets that offer cool lights to see and of course, they have lists of the larger displays that are often put on in parks or other areas that people can drive through to view.
You may also want to check your newspaper for a list of local outdoor Christmas light displays, because many times newspapers will run lists of them each week. Be warned, if you go to see a large display that is put on by an organization, you may have to pay to enter. If you don't want to pay money to see Christmas light displays, then sticking to neighborhoods is probably your best bet for seeing some neat Christmas lights.
