THERE ARE MORE THAN 10 WONDROUS SPOTS YOU CAN VISIT THIS SEASON TO GET YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT, MANY WITHOUT SPENDING MUCH. WE KNOW THERE ARE LIGHT LOVERS WHO GO TO THE SAME SPOT EVERY YEAR (BECAUSE WE ALL SEE THE SAME PHOTOS ALL OVER OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDS!), BUT HAVE YOU GONE TO ALL OF THE LIT SPOTS IN TOWN AND CLOSE TO TOWN? CHECK OUT OUR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS GUIDE THAT WILL TAKE YOU ON TONS OF ADVENTURES – TO THE NORTH POLE, THROUGH TUNNELS FULL OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, TO A GIGANTIC LIT TEXAS FLAG, THROUGH COZY HAYRIDES, TO THE BEST PLACE YOU CAN FIND A PUMPKIN-SPICED LATTE AND SEE SANTA WITH COWBOY BOOTS! IF YOU HAVE BEEN SAYING EVERY DECEMBER, “OH, I’VE BEEN WANTING TO GO THERE!” – DO IT. YOU WON’T REGRET IT. WE HOPE THIS GUIDE ENCOURAGES YOU TO VISIT NEW PLACES TO ADD TO YOUR HOLLY JOLLY NIGHTS AND IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, MAKE IT A WONDERFUL TRADITION BEGINNING THIS WINTER.
