I’m so excited to make this year’s map bigger and better than ever! I’ve loved hearing about so many people putting up displays for the first time! Seeing lights is a perfect way to enjoy family, the Christmas holiday, and the community while also staying safe in the process! Super pumped to see new light displays up this year!!

MAP UPDATE: NEW MAP PIN COLOR ORANGE – “Submitted by community”

MAP GUIDE: On the map you’ll see pins that point to addresses of houses with nice Christmas lights. Those pins are colored either green (must see!), blue (very nice), or yellow (they have a minion!). As you’ll see on the left side of the map the pins are ordered into based on geography and how close they were to a house that I would consider a “must see”, or an anchor house on a trip. I did this so you can feel like you can leave the house, see a group of houses that includes a “must see” on the trip, and be finished within a reasonable amount of time if you have kids.

So you can look at the entire map, or you can eliminate groups of lights by deselecting the check box next to the group you don’t want to see.

Below the links are a full list of light display addresses with brief comments about each and a link directly to that address in Google Maps.

VERY IMPORTANT: We want this to be a complete map of ALL the best lights locally. If you find Hampton Roads Christmas lights that you love and AREN’T on his map, please let me know! And I’ll give you a shout out on the blog! Here’s how to contact me:
