Just wondering of some good places to walk around with the significant other to look at Christmas lights...

Isn't lights in the heights more of a tour type thing?


Any suggestions would be great, thanks!

Sorry, guess it depends on what part of town you live in. The top one is about 5 minutes from SE Houston. But if you don't live in SE Houston, then yeah it would be quite a drive. Although this is Houston, and people are used to driving a lot here.

You can stroll Hermann Park... we went a few years back and I had expected more. Maybe it's better now, worth a look at least.

There is a little street in the Parkwood area of Riverside Terrace where the homes are all covered with red and yellow lights. I don't know if there is an association, or if the neighbors planned it themselves, but the uniformity of colors looks good.

I don't think Hermann Park does lights anymore for budget reasons.... lame or that would've been a good spot!

if you want to drive 30 miles southwest to Pecan Grove - you will not leave disappointed. We've had this 'custom' of driving down to Pecan Grove on Christmas eve but tonight the rain just took the cake !

I actually don't live too far from Pecan Grove.... I'm in Katy.

I'm going to go look at Pecan Grove here a minute. I'm hoping there's a little area with a park where me and the gf can walk around tomorrow night.

Will try Lights at the Heights as well on the opposite end of Houston
