Top Holiday Light Destinations


Christmas lights determine the main attractions during the holidays. The top destinations all celebrate the season in brightly lit colors and designs. Below is a list of this year’s top destinations for holiday lights.

Rockefeller Center

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has been illuminating downtown Manhattan since the 1930s. With musicians and celebrities in attendance, the lighting ceremony has become a staple of the New York holiday season. This year more than 30,000 Christmas lights adorn the tree. Celebrating the holidays in an eco-friendly fashion, every single bulb is an LED. The tree may be the main attraction, but the center, itself, is decorated in thousands of lights. With an ice-skating rink offering hours of entertainment, the Rockefeller Center is definitely a top holiday destination.

National Christmas Tree

For over 90 years, the National Christmas Tree has been spreading the joy of the season to the Washington, D.C. area. Covered in more than 60 strands of LED lights and close to 200 ornaments, this tree is definitely a sight for sore eyes.

San Antonio River Walk

Designed to fit the Texas motto, this holiday destination is most certainly one of the biggest attractions. Almost two million lights adorn the destination, illuminating trees and bridges to resemble something out of a fairytale.


Lightening the entire city with its glow, Union Station explodes with color. More than 600,000 lights make The Mile High City one of the most luminous destinations during the holiday season.

The Biltmore

Located in Asheville, N.C., the Biltmore houses close to 70 decorated trees every holiday season. The mansion is decorated in candlelight, miles of holiday lights and decorations.

Atlantic Botanical Garden

This holiday destination provides different exhibitions completely designed out of Christmas lights. This year, visitors will find Van Gogh’s Starry Night among them. Located on more than 30 acres and with more than one million lights, the Botanical Gardens should be on the top of anyone’s destination list.
