As the days get shorter, the nights are brightened with holiday lights. Twinkling lights, joyful tunes and sugary treats add magic to the season.

The following list features places to view Christmas lights in the Metroplex for friends and family to create memories this holiday season.

Lights at Interlochen

Every year over 200 new and longtime residents decorate their homes to celebrate the season and join the holiday tradition. Any unused decorations are recycled, and a group of residents come together to assist elderly neighbors with decorating.
