Let There Be Lights!

Your Guide to Holiday Light Displays in San Diego

It’s that time of year again, when we dust off our knotted strands of rainbow-colored incandescent and LED lights, inflate our inflatable Santa and snowmen, and prominently display them for all the world to see—in our yards and on our walls and rooftops. It’s an American tradition that dates back to Thomas Edison (circa 1880), who brought us the first electric Christmas light display as a way to market his “Miracle of Light.” Ever since, we have been mesmerized by their glow and overcome by that unmistakable, child-like feeling of wonderment that could bring a smile to even the grumpiest of Grinchy McScrooges.

We are lucky to have several Holiday light displays in San Diego that will surely twinkle your fancy. Here’s a (nice) list of San Diego neighborhoods with a little extra Yuletide flare:
