With morning temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s recently, it certainly is starting to feel a lot like Christmas. One favorite tradition is the annual search for the best Christmas Lights displays to go and see. Sometimes a friendly neighborhood competition on who can string up the best display is a great way to get into the spirit of the season.

This perennial favorite never disappoints. Situated just east of I-95 and north of Donald Ross Road this Jupiter neighborhood is known for it’s high level of participation among neighbors. Heights of Jupiter should be on your list of the Best Christmas Lights and Events this year.
We are, you know, in Florida. So we have to make our trees a little more…tropical. Enter Sandi Tree. 600 tons and 35 ft tall Christmas Tree made out of sand. The tree can be seen downtown where Clematis meets the water. “Check out all the events at Sandi Land here!”
After 10 years of entertaining thousands, this will be the final year for the Hartlights. It’s become a tradition for those nearby and we will miss the joy it has brought to many. Don’t miss the final year of the display and dancing Frosty the Snowman. Tune your radio to 96.1 FM to listen to the music and enjoy the 90,000 plus lights.

Hoffman’s has always been a great holiday stop for the lights and treats, but they have really upped their game this year. Did somebody say ice skating? In addition to the lights and animated displays, this year Hoffman’s will feature a 2,400 outdoor ice skating rink. Rental skates are included in the price. Ice Skating and chocolate. If that doesn’t scream holidays I don’t know what does. Get all the details here
While the panhandle may have gotten a light dusting this year, here in South Florida the chances of a white winter are usually slim. But before you pack up the kids and the ca and head to the Smokies, try dinner and a night of “snowfall” at City Place. Well okay, maybe more like foamfall, but my kids always loved it nonetheless. Here are the times
- Monday – Wednesday 6PM and PM
- Thursday – Sunday 6PM, 7PM, and PM
Grab a pizza and enjoy our own unique holiday tradition. Find more info here

The Holiday Fantasy of Lights is again going strong through January 1st. This drive through display can be seen from the Turnpike each holiday season. There is a per car charge for the experience but there are value days which drops the price. Get all the details for this entry in the Best Christmas Lights tour here
This entry is the furthest on the list, but perhaps closest to my heart. That’s because I grew up going to Tropical Park for this annual event and bring my kids every year now.
The walk through display hosts many lighted scenes as soon as you enter the park. The giant Christmas tree awaits you at the end of the walking tour, just before you get to the ride and food section. Get your tickets ahead of time to avoid waiting in line when you get there.
