Reserve a Limo to see Holiday Light Shows in Massachusetts

This holiday season will be a magical time of year yet again filled with many wonderful sights, activities, and fun for all ages. One of the most beloved activities this time of year is the amazing Holiday light displays throughout Massachusetts.

 

If you’re in the process of choosing which of the following light displays you want to go to and planning the evening out, we encourage you to think outside of the box and to really make this year one to remember. Massachusetts can be crazy around the holidays, especially during these favorite family-friendly events. If you’re at all concerned about traffic, parking, celebrating responsibly, and just generally minimizing all annoyances as possible, consider renting a limousine for the evening. Head over to the light display and then sit back and relax in the plush seats of the limo as the professional chauffeur whisks you away to one of Massachusetts’s top light displays.

 

Bright Nights, Springfield
Since opening in 1995, this staggeringly enormous lights park is known for mentions in national publications like The New York Times and Yahoo Travel. The place is a gem, with impressive displays of everything from the works of Springfield native Doctor Seuss to more traditional holiday tableau.
Somerville Illumination Trolley Tour
Each year, a numerous amount of Somerville residents go all out on their decorating, transforming their homes into blinding holiday beacons visible from blocks away. To highlight this, the Somerville Arts Council created the Illumination Trolley Tour, shuttling interested parties from house to house on a 45-minute ride, complete with cookies and hot chocolate. Tickets for the trolley are limited, but the Arts Council also provides a $3 map of the homes for people who want to take a walking tour.
Zoo Lights, Stoneham

Along with holiday-themed additions to many animal enclosures like lights and holly wreaths, each year the Stone Zoo puts together Zoo Lights, a dazzling holiday display that illuminates the zoo when the darkness falls

Boston Common

Boston continues to transform into a winter wonderland each year with the Boston Common tree lighting, when the tree from Nova Scotia is illuminated. Arrive early and you can check out the Frog Pond Skating Spectacular, a free ice show from the Skating Club of Boston featuring national and international competitive figure skaters performing both solo and group routines. It is ok if you can’t make it to the ceremony, it’s still worth hitting the Boston Common for trees, ornaments, and structures embellished with sparkling neon lights.

The Lynn Fells Parkway, Saugus

Drive down to a mile-long stretch of the Lynn Fells Parkway in Saugus, and you’ll see your fair share of impressive light displays. According to Wicked Local, the tradition dates back to the 1950s, when the neighborhood association would hold lighting contests that got people in the holiday spirit.

Blink! Faneuil Hall

For the last few years, holiday shoppers around Faneuil Hall have been able to enjoy the audiovisual styling of Blink! a display that combines the brilliance of 350,000 LED lights with music from the Holiday Pops. The spectacle only lasts seven minutes, but it runs multiple times every night throughout the holiday season.

Winter Reimagined at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston

One of the oldest botanical gardens in the nation is home to one of the sweetest light displays in Massachusetts as well. The Tower Hill Botanic Garden’s winding paths and exotic plants offer the perfect atmosphere for a spectacular holiday visage. The Garden is open both early and late.

Fields Corner, Dorchester

Unlike most of the entries on this list, this light display isn’t put on by an organization; rather, it’s simply the hard work of a father-son duo that spends months getting their Dorchester home completely decked out for the holidays, according to a 2012 Boston.com article. For public transit travelers, the house is about a 10-minute walk from the Fields Corner stop on the Red Line.

La Salette Shrine, Attleboro

For over 60 years, La Salette Shrine in Attleboro has wowed visitors with displays featuring around 300,000 lights spread over 10 acres. The Shrine also features an international crèche museum, with more than 1,000 crèches from at least 100 different countries.

Edaville Festival of Lights, Carver

The Edaville Heritage Railroad and Edaville USA amusement park are both delightful oddities worth checking out any time of year. Thomas Land, the amusement park devoted to Thomas the Tank Engine, is just one of the uncommon attractions. When the holidays roll around, Edaville breaks out 17 million lights and special events like a “Where’s Santa?” train adventure to give visitors even more bang for their buck.
