4 Memorable Spots For Christmas Light Viewing In Greater Seattle
During these darker times of the year in the PNW, it’s no surprise that some firmly take to the art of lighting up the night with their holiday displays. Some neighborhoods in the greater Seattle area even mandate a homeowner’s involvement in setting up a unique light display outside their home. For this reason and more it’s become a tradition in several neighborhoods around the city to create veritable pockets of winter wonderlands.
On top of the efforts of individuals around residential areas, there are also some bigger displays that are set up in the city. Many businesses utilize these fancy light displays to draw in foot-traffic in an otherwise slow time of the year for tourism and outdoor activities. We’ve put together four phenomenal places to view intricate holiday light arrangements the kids will love that are largely all free to view.

This is one of the eclectic neighborhoods that always offers stellar light displays free of charge for your family to view! Since 1949 Candy Cane Lane in the Ravenna neighborhood of North Seattle has been bringing in visitors from around the area to view whimsical displays. Twenty-three houses in a row all decked-out with lights, lawn ornaments, blow-ups and more for you and the kids to view. This display runs December 8th-January 1st so there’s time to check it out after Christmas!
This family in Bothell puts on a light display for the books. The Keener family has made a considerable mark in the area with their yearly Keener’s Christmas light showcase.
