One of the most wonderful traditions of the Holiday Season is a festival of lights in towns and cities throughout the United States. Many communities go all out at this time of year with dazzling light displays that turn adults into children again, and transform even the most Bah Humbug among us into wide-eyed participants in the Holiday season.
Want to know the absolute best places to take the kids and grandkids to see the most decked out balls of holly this year? TravelingMom.com, a popular site for families on the go, presents “52 Holiday Light Delights” — a Holiday EZine filled with suggestions for catching the Holiday Spirit and seeing some of the best light displays in the country. The light shows range from Niagara Falls, New York, to San Diego, California, and are organized by region — Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, South and West.
The 52 Best Holiday Light Displays in the USA suggestions include:
o Syracuse, New York’s “Lights on the Lake,” (#9), a two-mile drive through one of the largest and most colorful light shows in the Northeast.
o “Winterfest” in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, (#15), with its five million holiday lights and huge displays,
o Sedona, Arizona’s “Red Rock Fantasy,” (#44) a man-made marvel of 1 million lights within the scenic beauty that has drawn visitors for the past 100 years,
o And San Diego’s “Garden of Lights,” (#50), a dazzling winter wonderland with 100,000 sparkling lights illuminating the Garden for a magical experience.
“Compiling all the dazzling light festivals for this issue put us all in the holiday spirit a little earlier this year,” said Cindy Richards, Editor of TravelingMom’s monthly EZine. “The challenge was limiting ourselves to only 52 locations around the country. One thing we learned – communities all over the US go all out for the Holidays!”
The TravelingMom.com Holiday issue is sponsored by Flight Center USA’s websites for travel by air (www.FlightCenter.com), land (www.HotCaribbeanDeals.com), and sea (www.DiscountCruises.com). The three sites offer the guaranteed best service and lowest prices on flights, Caribbean vacations and Holiday and year-round cruising.
With most Holiday exhibits flicking the “on” switch in November, and closing in late January, the Holiday Season is a great time to see the sites, and the lights.
