Default Christmas/Holiday Display Drive Thru? Best one?

We are looking for a good place to drive through to see christmas/holiday lights and music. Some places we have in mind are: Medina ($8/per car).

We live in middleburg Hts and have 2yr old girls who love to view lots of lights.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advanced

I am so glad you started this thread!

This is our first winter back and would love to find some this weekend. We are located in the East side of Lake County. The one we heard that was good is:Lights on the Lake in Ashtabula, Ohio

I am not sure though. Hopefully, people start posting to help us! My two year old would love the lights. ( I doubt my 13 and 17 year old would)LOL.

I agree this is an excellent thread. If any one knows of some good neighborhoods to drive through also please share.

How far is Blossom from you? I saw this one too, Blossom Holiday Lighting Festival

I haven't been here long enough to know the area of Cleveland that well. We don't mind driving as long as it is worth it!

When we lived in Florida, we saw signs for the Festival of Lights on Amelia Island. We couldn't wait to go. It said it was downtown. We drove all over looking for it. Well, the next day we called the Chamber of Commerce to ask about it again. Their reply, " YOU CAN"T MISS IT! ITS ALL OVER DOWN TOWN." Come to find out....Their meaning of Festival of Lights was WAY different than ours. They said it was all the lights on the poles down town. They were all clear lights and wreaths on tops of the poles.

We just do not want a repeat of that! LOL.

Both places are far away (about an hour+). With two infants, thats not a fun drive. We are near Strongsville and Parma if that helps.

I know a good place in Strongsville. Coming from Middleburg Heights: 71 South, get off at Royalton Road (route 82) strongsville exit. You can only go right (west) off of the exit. Go to the first light which is Howe Road. Turn Left (south) onto Howe Road (BP and a Marathon are on the corners). Go south until you get to Drake Road. Turn left (east) onto drake. When you come to the stop sign, turn Right (south east) onto Hunt Road. The 3rd street on the right should be Crown Point Parkway. At night, you can't miss the lights.

Most of the houses put up tons of lights, but some don't even put up any, so you have a couple houses with lights, then one without. But it's definitely worth the driveby.

If you go, let me know how it is!

I live in Strongsville and we live close to that neighbrohood. It is definitely worth the short trip from Middleburg Hts. You can even get out of your car and walk around. Last year they had even had a Santa sitting in a big chair in one of the driveways. Definitely go!

Just got back from "Crown Point Parkway"! Way, what a display! The entire block has gates on the sidewalk covered with lights. The main house in the court is totally decked out with lights, trains, and yes Santa was there, along with his elves...Babies got to sit on santa (and cry) but got a candy cane to chew on..

Blossom was a bit too far. Maybe when they get older we will make the trip. Until then, Strongsville is just fine.

Thanks to all!

Glad to hear you and your family enjoyed the display in Strongsville. It's always nice to see a neighborhood get together and setup lights. If you see any other lights that are privately done, let us know.
