It’s your last chance to see the season in all its glory! Below are a few places in and near the San Fernando Valley that are known for their bright lights and festive décor.

Burbank: The coolest part about this house, well, besides the thousands of beautiful lights, is there are two live streaming webcams that allow folks to view the display from around the world, as well as enable visitors to call anyone from in front of the display – direct them to the website and then wish them Happy Holidays from Beautiful Downtown Burbank.

Los Angeles: Wild for Lights at the Los Angeles Zoo is a sight to behold. See the zoo come alive while most of the animals sleep. When the sun goes down, the zoo transforms into a magical winter jungle with lights, lasers, 3D projections and interactive displays.

Los Angeles: Artistic Lighting at the Getty Center brings you a breathtaking view and a serene light show. The trees light up with twinkling white lights and snowflakes are projected on the walls, it is a perfect spot for amore calm and quite experience.

Woodland Hills: I am sure this one needs no introduction…of course it’s the San Fernando Valley famous Candy Cane Lane! This is a more stay-in-your-car adventure, but it is baby-friendly and lots of families walk along the sidewalks to get a closer look. Definitely something to check out!

Pasadena: Similar to Candy Cane Lane, Hastings Ranch in Pasadena is sure to delight your holiday senses! Each block within this neighborhood has its own theme, from a snowy Winter Wonderland to Santa’s Toy Shop, adults and kids alike will enjoy!

Pasadena: Enchanted Forest of Lights at the Descanso Gardens will light up its lush landscape with a one-of-a-kind holiday light display. The light show features several interactive displays, like the Symphony of Oaks, which lets you manipulate lights and sounds in the garden’s Oak Grove.

Reseda:  If you are enjoying the chilly evenings here in the SFV and prefer a nice stroll, check out the Tunnel of Lights on the 7300 block of Yolanda Ave in Reseda. The sidewalk is lined with a beautifully lit tunnel on both sides of the street for your enjoyment!

Sherman Oaks: 3901 Longview Valley Road is the home to the 2015 winner of the national reality show The Great Christmas Light Fight. This display is much more than just lights, with a music and light show it’s definitely worth your time!
