LIGHT DISPLAYS - PRIVATE HOMES

Please help us keep this area updated.
We can't be everywhere, so we will need your help to maintain this list. Please let us know when you visit these homes if they deserve to remain on our list.

If you find a street beautifully decorated, or one house that is just, well, over the top, please let us know so we can add it for all to see. Send an email to: info@santaclaritaguide.com


Driving around town, one can't help but notice the extraordinary light displays put on by private homeowners. As much as we would love to include all of these displays, we are limiting this publication to streets with three or more exceptionally lit homes. Here are a few you won't want to miss. We've listed them in order for an easy route to follow. For a real treat, put on a Christmas CD during the drive.

I'd like to pass along a special "thank you" to all of the homeowners who worked so diligently to put together these incredible exhibits. The sparkling displays truly light up our dark, winter evenings.

The Thomas Guide coordinates are provided after the street name. The LA County Guide was used, unless otherwise noted.
