It's that time of year again! So what are the best places around LA you've found for seeing Christmas lights? It can be a commercial location, such as The Grove, or a residential street. Personally, I'm a big fan of downtown Beverly Hills... particularly Via Rodeo with the giant tree.

A place I've been going to since when my parents took me there in the early mid 1960s

Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena is another place not to be missed.

IIRC, there is a street in Torrance that does something similar to the above two streets... anyone remember where that is?

Default Christmas Light Viewing

It has always been pleasure visiting places that are lighted beautifully on Christmas. It is really a treat for the eyes to see lights and all the places lit up.

Remember the nativity stations in Santa Monica? They're long gone now, I suppose because B'nai B'rith or some other organization complained about them.

Naples is usually lit up well. Park the car and walk the sidewalks around the waterways.

if we're thinking about the same thing, they're still very much there.

I remember the nativity scenes well, since I saw them last weekend in Santa Monica! You need to get out of the library and down to Santa Monica every once in a while!

Candy Cane Lane (Acacia St) in El Segundo - I take my kids every year to stroll up and down some night before Christmas. I might post pics later if they come out ok.
