Light Up Your Holiday Season With These Displays in the Bay Area

Best Christmas Light Displays in the Bay Area for 2021 

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without Christmas lights, and while you may decorate your house this season, there are some Christmas light displays that go above and beyond each year. So, we’ve compiled our best picks for Christmas light displays in the Palo Alto area and beyond for the 2021 holiday season. It is by no means a definitive list, so leave your own recommendations in the comments section, Happy holidays! 

Keep in mind that some displays may operate differently than past years. While we are still in the midst of the COVID pandemic, certain protocols may need to be followed depending on the location, so plan ahead.
