Holiday Lights – Where to see them

j0309579If you enjoy looking at holiday lights and displays, then this map is for you.  Courtesy of the Arizona Republic – Holiday Lights Map.   The entire Phoenix area is included on the map.  You can zoom in on your city or area to locate neighbors with a holiday lights display in your area.

Other places to see lights include Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo.  This runs nightly through January 10, 2010 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.  Tickets cost $9.00 per person for Sunday through Thursday nights and $10.00 on Friday and Saturday.  There is a discount for Zoo members.  Kids age 2 and younger are free.  They have a new Komodo Dragon Exhibit that you can see while touring the zoo.

One of our favorites is Las Noches de las Luminarias at the Desert Botanical Garden.  Stroll through the garden which is lit by lights and luminarias.  Stop at the many different spots to listen to musical performances.  There is place to get refreshments.  I do recommend that you purchase tickets in advance as some nights sell out.  You can purchase tickets on-line.  This event is mostly attended by adults.  However, if you have a child or teenager who enjoys sitting quietly and listening to music, they will enjoy it too.
