Seek and ye shall find Christmas lights! We might not have the cold December weather, but there’s no shortage of the holiday cheer. So be sure to check out these twinkling spots.
Check out the lighted wreaths along May River Road on your way to Old Town. Once there, take a moment to drive around DuBois Park, home to the town’s lighted Christmas tree, and the Martin Family Park on Boundary Street. Both parks are prettily lined with bright white lights.
Off Buckwalter Parkway, the Edgefield neighborhood always goes all out. Numerous homes decorate in holiday style. It’s definitely worth driving around.
You can’t miss with a drive around Bluffton Park. Pick any place to start and enjoy the surprise of seeing what’s around the next corner as you wind your way through the neighborhood.
Shelter Cove, Hilton Head
The Shelter Cove Towne Centre constructs a canopy of lights stretch over Shelter Cove Lane as the stores decorate in their own festive way – with snowflakes, nutcrackers and their own sets of lights.
Shelter Cove Marina is abound with festive decor this time of year. Who doesn’t want to take a photo with King Neptune in Santa’s hat? And don’t forget to look out on the water, because a few people decorated their boats docked in the marina.
Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue Station #3
In 2007 the firefighters started decorating the station at 534 William Hilton Parkway and each year it’s steadily grown, dazzling as many as 14,000 vehicles full of people. With all kinds of bright lights and whimsical displays, the firefighter’s Christmas lights really capture the holiday spirit. So if you’re driving around the island, be sure and cruise by the station to see the firefighter’s Christmas lights. (Photo provided by the Fire Station).
Sea Pines Resort, Hilton Head
A line of festive inflatables will guide you into South Beach’s Marina Village, where you’ll find light-covered canopies and decks and, at the center of it all, a little baby Jesus surrounded by wise men. Amid all the shops is a small nativity scene, the perfect place for kids to learn the nativity story.
Not only do you get to see the lighthouse and paths by the shops decked in décor at Harbour Town, but at night you can see twice the amount of lights – those out and their reflection in the water. And if you’re looking for some fun lights that kids will enjoy, there are plenty of animated snowmen, trains and Santas around the shops they’ll love.
