Winter Lights

One of my favorite holiday traditions is seeing holiday lights. Whether you see community displays or your neighbor whose spirit animal is Clark Griswold, stay warm and cozy from the comfort of your car. So pile in the car with friends and family, fill a plaid thermos with some hot chocolate, and play some Christmas music as you make holiday memories!

Last night, we visited Winter Lights, at Seneca Creek State Park. We arrived shortly after the display opened at 6 p.m. so we didn't have much of a wait even though probably a hundred or so cars lined the entrance at that time. During the 3.5 mile drive, we saw more than 365 illuminated displays and 65 animated vignettes that light up the night.

I loved Cinderella's Castle. Little details like the pumpkin coach and the animated unicorn delighted visitors.

Lights illuminated every area of the park, but I especially enjoyed the lights in the water and on the willow trees. Santa waved goodbye as we left the park.

It took about an hour for us to observe the displays and we never felt rushed  even though it was so crowded by the time we left. If you go, I recommend that you arrive early to avoid crowds.

  1. Love looking at Christmas lights! We go every year to James Island county park to see their big display. And just this evening my daughter and I drove to a nearby neighborhood to look at the lights.
