The Best Christmas Lights In
Fort Bend & Harris
Christmas Wonderlights knows there is nothing better than having your own lights but we love Christmas lights so much we thought to compile you a list of some of the best places in Houston to drive and check out Christmas lights, after all we install a good portion of them but we have also asked other friends to pitch in and help us name the best 10 places where you can see a dazzling array of holiday displays that are sure to lift your holiday spirits.
Starting off our list from our backyard in Katy TX.
Katy Christmas Lights
The best place to drive in Katy for lights is located at 24603 Stoughton Court right off I-10 and Pin Oak, this family has been lighting up Katy with Christmas lights for over a decade. Even after Harvey they still persevered and are spreading joy so this is one home you don’t want to miss this Christmas.
Pecan Grove located in Fort Bend county has over 2000 homes that compete for the best holiday home in the area. You don’t want to miss this truly magical place as they deck their homes and pull out all the stops. Along the Christmas light route tucked inside a quaint cul-de-sac is a family that has over 50 trees decorating from the Astros to Nutcrackers. You can even enjoy a hayride as you travel along the Christmas light route but make sure to grab a piping warm cup of coco first.
A nice little trek past Katy is our friends located in River Oaks. There Christmas lights are magnificent and so are the homes. The holiday light tradition started when Thomas Ginn designed the Santa house with a live Santa and over $100,000 Christmas light display that includes snow falling from the trees. This home attracts media from around the world. Since over 300K people visit River Oaks to see Christmas lights its best to arrive by 5:00 you can also take a hayride, bus, limo or walk along the sidewalks.
Another area that does it big here in the Houston area and is much closer to Katy is Prestonwood Forest. Homeowners have been competing in the Night of Light festival over 40 years and thousands come to see the holiday spirit. The Night of Light event typically begins on the second weekend of December until the week after Christmas.
Ah, The Heights- With amazing dining options and historic charm, this area is also a must see during the holidays! Make sure to find out the weekend for Lights In The Heights but if you miss it the entire Woodlands Heights area is beautifully done up with Christmas lights.
We call this one the hidden gem! Located between Westheimer and San Felipe and Chimney Rock and Voss, Briar grove is an area that’s easily accessible on I-10 East. Known to be super family-oriented, this area is also known for its giant oak trees overflowing with Christmas lights.
Located 7.5 miles outside of Cleveland, TX, The Christmas Ranch is a must on your holiday light bucket list! This holiday treat is free but a donation is appreciated for charity. The Hanley home features more than 300,000 twinkling lights and a 33-foot reindeer. Santa also stops by during the Christmas season. Christmas displays are up through the New year.
The Woodlands — Since 2001, the Dodd family has shared their love of Christmas lights with the community. Chris Dodd spends two to three weeks setting up his display. He enjoys coming out and mingling with visitors. His light show is two hours with around 45 songs.
