Default Christmas places to visit & see lights

I am in South Jersey (Berlin). Was wanting to take out my son 3yrs & my inlaws (in their 80's) out to see the displays.
It be ideal to find a drive through display, does anyone know of any in the area?
If not we'd like to try others also if the weather dosent freeze the youngins & oldies.
Thanks guys & gals for any input.

I havedn't checked yet to confirm for this year, but Great Adventure, in Jackson, has traditionally had a drive through display of lights, as has the PNC Arts Center. If I remember correctly, G.A. was updating & upgrading theirs last year, so maybe thats the better one now.

Great Adventure hasn't done a light display in several years. From their website, it doesn't look like they'll be doing it this year either. It's too bad cuz the couple years they did it were a lot better then the one at PNC.

Take a train and visit Rockefeller Center in NYC. It would swamp anything in NJ. Just has a great air to it around Christmastime.

Default Places to go

There is a beautiful place to go see lights in Pitman NJ. The entire block does it...greatest Christmas lights display Ive ever seen! You get to walk around the backyards and they have little houses you can walk through...AMAZING! There is another place I believe in Cherry Hill...2 neighbors and one guy is dressed as Santa.....LOTS of lights...looks like the Griswalds. You wont be disappointed at either place!

I've always loved the PNC Light Show (which was WAY better than Great Adventures IMO).

There is a house in Marlton that a poster on here, Father Christmas, was posting about a few weeks ago. If I lived closer I would have checked it out. I'll find the post and you can get all the info you need from there.

If you are willing to drive about an hour, go to Princeton. They have fantastic Christmas trees/lights. Sorry, but you missed the Christmas tree lighting. It is done annually at Palmer Square in downtown Princeton.
