Out of oodles of holiday traditions associated with this time of year, none may be as beloved as loading the family into the car or taking a walk in search of the best neighborhood light displays and shows. But where can you find some of the best neighborhood Christmas lights in Fairfax County?

Visit Fairfax and local expert Holly Zell have compiled a list of locations to visit in Burke, Annandale, Lorton, Alexandria, McLean and more points in between.

Most displays will be on through early January. As a reminder, these are private properties, so please respect the owners’ homes and stay out of the light display and yard when visiting and do not block driveways.
