Christmas Holiday Light Displays Near Boston

Events INSIDER tracks more than 50 holiday light displays in New England. It’s a great excuse to explore and be outdoors at night, admiring the stars and thousands or even millions of holiday lights. Destinations are sometimes very religious, like the La Salette Shrines, but are generally pretty secular and often inclusive of other faiths.

Here are some of the ones open this week closest to Boston! An “S” indicates that something special is scheduled for that night, such as caroling or a visit from Santa.
