Atlanta Holiday Lights and Where to Find Them


The Oaks at Mill Pond

The cool, crisp mornings of fall are turning into cold, bundled up days of winter as the holiday season approaches. Even in 2020, this is a time for pause and reflection to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us; our friends, family, and the jovial holiday spirit of Atlanta. And what better to soak in the cheer than the holiday tradition of looking at Christmas lights? This year, Atlanta has a variety of holiday light options, ranging from walk-throughs, to drive throughs, and ride-by displays.

Stone Mountain Christmas Lights, Stone Mountain Park
Perhaps the most known destination for family-friendly holiday activities is Stone Mountain Christmas. Spectators celebrate the season with stunning Christmas laser shows, an enchanting forest of lights and music, and even an appearance from Mr. Claus himself.

Garden Lights and Holiday Nights, Atlanta Botanical Garden
A great spot for a whimsical date night or mesmerizing night out with the family is the Holiday Nights exhibit at Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Walk through the winding paths of the garden with intricate light designs and holiday music on either side of you. This holiday show is both kid-friendly and adult-friendly, with vendors serving hot chocolates, specialty cocktails, and seasonal snacks along the way.

Atlanta Festival of Lights, Atlantic Station
This holiday display is drivable, as you slowly cruise through the extravagant Festival of Lights at Atlantic Station. Marvel at the stunning array of lights through a canopy tunnel, fully decorated trees, and more, all from the warmth and comfort of your own vehicle.

These are only a couple of our favorite spots for holiday cheer, and there are countless more in and around the Atlanta area. So this weekend, grab your friends and family, mittens and scarves, and a peppermint hot chocolate as you enjoy a dazzling display of holiday lights.
