Where To Find The Best Christmas Light Displays On The South Shore

Updated for 2016


Christmas lights are popping up all over town!  While we think it’s fun to drive around our neighborhood and see everyone’s decorations, there are a few spots on the South Shore that go all out every year, and are worth driving a little bit further to see.  Some are old school, some are set to music, and some are just dazzling.  So put the kids in their PJ’s, grab some hot chocolate for the road, and go do some light peeping!




Loganberry Drive
Handmade wooden models, and lights set to music.



Our Lady of Salette
See over 10 acres decorated with more than 300,000 lights.  Illuminated from 5-9pm daily from Nov 24-Jan 1.  Admission is free.  See website for more information.



Messina Woods Drive
Braintree Lights has been a favorite of ours for years, but unfortunately they are no longer putting up their display.  We will miss them!

Morrison Street
Located just off of Middle Street, #17 Morrison Street goes all out with decorations, in both the front and back yards.  (Note:  this is a narrow street.  Do not attempt to turn around, follow the road around the corner to get back to Middle Street).

Doris Ave
A cul-de-sac where multiple houses participate, using a mix of old school and newer decorations.   To get there, take Doris Ave off of Middle Street, then take the next right onto Andrea Drive (leads to Eileen Drive).  Great to visit if you’re in the area for the other Braintree displays.

  3. 85 Buckingham Rd. Milton
    It is lights and talking penguins that go to music. Tune in on the local radio station to hear the music and light show. Very professional!

  4. Loganberry drive in Abington. All hand made wood models of tons of Disney characters and more!!!! House also lights up to music

  5. Just a note for Morrison St. Braintree ~ The street is VERY narrow and a dead end, not much room to turn around. Strongly recommend finding a legal parking spot on one of the other side streets and walking over.

  6. 3 Oak Street (off of Sycamore Drive) in Holbrook. Our family has a computerized Christmas Light and Music Show with over 20,000 LED Lights and 40 yard decorations. Show plays nightly from 6pm to 9pm weeknights and 11pm Friday to Sunday, thru New Years Eve. Families can watch the show from the comfort of their car as the music is played on FM Station 102.1.

  7. 3 Oak St in Holbrook was AMAZING! We just left there and we stayed for a good half hour. The lights are fantastic and so impressive. If you haven’t been already you need to go see it!
