2018 Triangle Christmas Light Displays

2018 Triangle Christmas Light Displays

As the song goes, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! I love this time of year, especially at night. Driving by homes and seeing the amazing light displays and Christmas trees with lights in the window make for such wonderful drives. Like most towns and cities across the US, if you jump in your car and just drive you are bound to see some sort of Christmas lighting that will catch your eye! The Christmas light displays on homes, business and even lining town streets are sure to make your commute home more enjoyable!

If you’re wanting to see homes decorated just jump in your car and take a drive. If you’re wanting to see major light displays, most of which are put on by regular folks like you and I and some by professionals! Check out the list below for some of the displays in the area! In addition to spectacular lighting displays some locations have other activities such as visits from Santa and hayrides.

Some of these spectacular lighting displays are synchronized to Christmas music and you can set your radio to the station to enjoy the display with music! Pack up your family and head out and explore the magnificent lighting displays this year.
