Christmas Lights Road Trip In Georgia
October 17, 2019
What city has the best Christmas lights in Georgia?
If you want to start a quick fight between Georgians, start talking about which city has the best light displays in Georgia. There are plenty of places in Georgia that really go all out when it comes to lighting up their city for the holidays, but a few edge others out. Helen, Georgia, for instance, is on the road trip and really dresses up their city to the nines in holiday decor. You’ll find tons of lights, ornaments, decorated trees, and more when you visit this Alpine city. However, one city we want to highlight specifically as having the best Christmas lights display in Georgia: Dahlonega. This city is pretty much a holiday wonderland and has a spectacular light display every single year.
What is the one best light display in Georgia?
Depending on who you ask, there usually is one winner when it comes to having the best light display around. The best and biggest light display in Georgia takes place at the Holiday Nights at Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Every year the theme may change, but the light displays are just as brilliant. Purchase tickets in advance because this display happens to be one of the premier things to do at Christmas in Georgia.
What else can I do around the holidays in Georgia?
Beyond taking a road trip through the best light displays in Georgia, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the holiday. Signature holiday events in Georgia become annual traditions, which is why you should start planning out your calendar now. A few of the best things to do in Georgia during the holidays include the Annual Illuminated Christmas Parade in Hinesville or the Dublin Christmas Parade, the Thomasville Victorian Christmas, Stone Mountain Christmas, Christmas at The Rock Ranch, and the Lighting of Downtown Dahlonega.
