What are the best drive-thru light shows in Massachusetts?

As the largest drive-thru light show in New England, Bright Nights at Forest Park in Massachusetts certainly earns props as one of the top – if not the top – light displays in the area. However, you’ll definitely want to check out others, too. The Magic of Lights is another must-visit drive-thru light display. Follow the 1.5-mile path, dotted with millions of lights, through Gillette Stadium for a one-of-a-kind Christmas adventure. The light display boasts light tunnels, a spectacular Blizzard Tunnel, and even some of your favorite holiday characters.

Where can I see the best light displays in Massachusetts?

Embracing the holiday spirit is pretty simple, especially with all of the breathtaking Christmas light displays in Massachusetts. You’ll have a packed schedule if you want to see them all. Winter Lights at Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, however, lasts throughout the winter, and  is definitely bucket list-worth. The greenway shimmers in countless twinkling lights. The La Salette Festival of Lights in Attleboro is a long-time tradition that boasts more than 300,000 lights. Definitely make it a point to also visit the Zoo Lights at Stone Zoo in Stoneham, the Nantucket Christmas Stroll Weekend, and the Worcester Festival of Lights.

What are the best Christmas towns in Massachusetts?

The holiday season provides the perfect backdrop for visiting some of the best Christmas towns in Massachusetts. You might even, in fact, see some of the twinkliest Christmas light displays in Massachusetts, on your journeys. Somerville, for example, shimmers with lights that decorate homes all through the town. Get in the holiday spirit (any time of the year) at Yankee Candle Village in Deerfield, a charming town adorned in Christmas lights and home to a Christmas tree farm where you can cut down your own Christmas tree. Attleboro, Shelburne Falls, and Springfield are all picture-perfect during Christmastime.
