Long Island Homes with Spectacular Holiday Lights
What better way to enjoy the holiday season than driving around to check out some of the most over-the-top home light displays on Long Island? From flying reindeer to inflatable Santas, holiday cheer is aglow in both Nassau and Suffolk County.
The homes listed are private homes and while they welcome visitors we do ask that you be respectful of their property by not touching any of the displays, stay off the lawn and be mindful of the noise level of your group.
Bring some small change with you and single dollar bills as a few of the homes are asking for donations for charities.
We've crowd-sourced the following list for your cruising and perusing. Have a ho-ho-holiday home you want to share with onlookers? Comment below.
