The Christmas Lights Road Trip Around Boston That’s Nothing Short Of Magical

Good news, Bostonians, we have a way for you to embrace the holiday spirit. And it doesn’t involve cooking for four hours, visiting relatives with whom you have little in common, or creating a Pinterest-worthy ornament that’ll leave glitter in every crack and crevice of your home!

No, instead, we suggest a little road trip that connects some of the best Christmas light displays in the Boston area. Load up the car with your favorite people and let the festivities begin.

This drive covers 116 miles and should take approximately 2.5 hours to complete (in light traffic). Click here to access the map for this holiday adventure.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

End your journey here or double back towards Boston Common to see the spectacular Christmas tree there. If you decide to take this trip, head on over to the Only In Boston Facebook page and share photos of your experience – we’d love to see them!

Want to continue the festive fun? Then venture a little further afield to the Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich where a winter wonderland is waiting!
