One of our family’s favorite holiday traditions is to view holiday lights. Luckily, there are many incredible displays throughout Southern California! Below are some ideas of places to find holiday light displays in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire.
Nothing’s merrier than a Sparkling Christmas Light Display! From decorated private homes and streets, to entire neighborhoods. Some of our favorite places to view lights in San Diego are at San Diego Botanic Garden’s “Garden of Lights” and the big Christmas tree at Coronado’s historic Hotel Del.
The Decorated Pines of St. Albans in the San Marino area of Los Angeles are some of our favorite lights to view in L.A. The Christmas tree and decorations at The Grove are also at the top of the list.
I have yet to personally see any Christmas light displays in the Inland Empire myself, but I’ve heard over and over that Tom’s Farms, located in the Temescal Canyon, is a great place to go for their Festival of Lights, as well as The Mission Inn’s Festival of Lights, located in Riverside. Both look to be pretty incredible from the pictures online, and the SoCal Kids love Tom’s Farms, so it’s likely a great place to go for the holidays with kids.
Do you know of a great place to view lights that are not listed within the places below? If so, please comment and share the sparkle! Perhaps we’ll see you at one of the displays!
