I have spent hours driving around our town hunting for the best holiday lights to share with you.

There are so many really pretty homes. But while I enjoyed seeing those homes, what I’m looking for are the homes that make you pull a u-turn because you just had to see it again. The ones where you know their breakers keep popping. The ones where you know Clark Griswold would be proud.

So for those of you not on this list, please don’t be mad! It just means next year you’ll have to make your home a little extra to take it up a notch. 

This Google Map has some notes on the destinations points so if you’re hoping for blow ups or lights, or music light shows you should be able to narrow down your driving list.

Tips:

  • Stay off lawns! There are countless cords and wires running through these lawns to keep these decorations up. Stay off them!
  • Remember these are all residential streets. Don’t block driveways.
  • Many of these displays were up by 5 p.m. if you want to hit the earlier side.
  • If it’s rainy or windy many displays will be down.

Newcomers and Noteworthy:

  • 602 Birch Street SW — Great for Elsa or Minions fans
  • 613 Yeonas Street SW — Cute lighted archway over the sidewalk, great photo opportunity for toddlers or those young at heart
  • 524 Walker Street SW — Great for Grinch fans
  • 317 Patrick Street SW — Just won the Town of Vienna voting contest, impressive light display
  • Hillington Court — Best use of your time, 2 for one on a cul-de-sac! Both homes are over the top beautiful 
  • Ni Family Lights — Make sure you follow them on Facebook for announcements. They have 2 different playlists running right now and will change it again for Christmas.

Please let me know if I missed anything! Seems like the Tyson’s area needs someone to step up and be Clark!
