Winter Lights

Nothing says “Holidays” like a glittering display of lights to celebrate the season. From Christmas trees peeking out through neighborhood windows, to entire yards illuminated with festive displays, one of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to drive around viewing all of the gorgeous lights.

But if you’re looking for something extra-special this year, why not head out to one of Maryland’s popular holiday light displays? Most charge by the car, so grab a few friends to split the cost – it’ll be well worth the drive!
