Indianapolis Christmas Lights

Indianapolis Area Christmas Light Displays

One of our favorite (sometimes FREE!) things to do at the holidays is pack our families in the car with a warm cup of hot chocolate and drive around to look at Christmas lights. Whether it be simply driving through your area and seeing what your neighbors have come up with this year, visiting the same display as a tradition each year or seeking out the latest and greatest lights display, it is the time spent with loved ones that creates such lasting memories. Here are a few of our favorite Christmas light displays across Indianapolis and the rest of Central Indiana:
