55 Holiday Winter Light Displays in New England

Don’t just sit around this holiday season! Get out and see some winter lights. These attractions are open at night, with thousands or millions of lights to celebrate Christmas, but usually in a secular way, Frosty the Snowman, that doesn’t completely alienate nonbelievers and those of other faiths.

“S” indicates something special is happening, like Santa visits or they’ll have carolers.

Events INSIDER lists more holiday lights in New England than any other source. Enjoy it. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
