Local holiday lights offer great sights
As the cool winter approaches, holiday lights and decorations are beginning to appear in every neighborhood. These decorations can be found throughout most of San Diego, but some streets stand out for their fantastic displays. Enjoy a drive with the whole family through these nearby areas and take in the colors and sounds of each festive home. Here are just a few twinkling destinations to explore:
Stonebridge Parkway and Merritage Court: Aptly nicknamed Merry-tage Court, this street is brightly lit with hundreds of lights, Christmas inflatables and movie-themed decorations such as Disney and Star Wars.
Farmingdale Street off Scripps Ranch Boulevard: Includes Swan Lake Drive, Stoney Way and other streets. If you’re looking for more classic Christmas decorations and lights, this is the area to go. Delicate, twinkling lights such as bright ornaments adorn this quiet area.
Hickory Court, Butterwood Court and Rockrose Court: Known as the Candy Cane Courts, this area is entirely lit up with dozens of candy canes, with holiday music playing, and there’s even a drop box to send letters to Santa Claus.
Oviedo Street off Black Mountain Road: Famously known as Christmas Card Lane, Oviedo Street is like a storybook Christmas village come to life. You’ll find animated installations, colorful displays and giant greeting cards.
