The Ultimate List of Holiday Lights in Phoenix

This is the ultimate list of holiday lights in Phoenix for your family! One favorite tradition of my family is to get in the car and drive around to look at lights. As a kid we would cut the map out of the paper and drive around. Now I enter it all in my GPS ahead of time and off we go! Here are some fun homes to check out. From thousands of lights, giant blowups and dancing lights coordinated with music, there is something for everyone.

There are addresses below, or check out our Google Maps listing!

A few tips:

  • Be mindful of neighbors driveways, grass and stay socially distant.
  • Remember to be courteous of other viewers and turn off your headlights.
  • List all addresses in your GPS ahead of time! So much easier to make your own route!
  • Not all homes have music, so be prepared with your own holiday playlist, especially while driving.
  • Make hot chocolate and bring Christmas cookies for the kiddos (and maybe the adults)
  • Closer to Christmas, some displays may become super busy. Plan ahead for possible wait times and traffic.
