Where to See Nevada’s Best Holiday Lights

As if there weren’t already endless lights glittering in Las Vegas, Christmas is a time to pull out all the stops. Check out some of these great twinkling sights on your Nevada Christmas vacation.

  • 1. Las Vegas

    A 2.5mi. long course running along the Las Vegas speedway is the best place to see the holiday lights in Vegas from the comfort of your rental car. Of course, there are plenty of other light displays to enjoy in the city itself, with most of the casinos along the iconic Strip decked out for the holidays.

  • 2. Nevada City

    The quaint town of Nevada City transforms each holiday season into a Victorian Christmas vacation town. After the glitz and glam of Vegas, enjoy tasteful white lights, as well as festive shopping and dining.

  • 3. Hidden Valley

    Each year, the houses in Reno’s Hidden Valley are lit up with thousands of lights for an annual contest. Check out these competitive homeowners’ works of art.

  • 4. Snowflake Festival and Parade of Lights

    The unique town of Elko is home to this beloved annual festival. Ice sculptures and a carnival atmosphere make for a great evening out.

  • 5. Henderson Winter Festival

    A Christmas light parade, kids' rides, and a petting zoo are free of charge in the city of Henderson each year during this annual festival.

Best Family Christmas Getaways in Nevada

With its bright lights and diverse attractions, Nevada is a great destination for a family Christmas getaway. Here are some sights to see.

  • 1. Las Vegas

    Of course, Las Vegas trumps all when it comes to festivities. Holiday light displays, a massive ice skating rink, and countless holiday-themed shows are just some of the Christmas attractions in this famous city.

  • 2. Ely

    In the town of Ely, you can hop on a seasonal Polar Express-themed historic train ride, which takes you on a magical journey to the North Pole. Kids get to meet Santa at the end of the 90min. journey, and everyone can enjoy riding a vintage locomotive.

  • 3. Reno

    Reno is a fun place to visit with the family at Christmas. You can attend activities as diverse as performances by the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, a Santa-themed pub crawl, and more.

  • 4. Carson City

    Cozier than Vegas, Carson City is a firm holiday favorite. Skate at Arlington Square Ice Rink and enjoy the festive downtown vibe.

  • 5. Virginia City

    Hosting its own Parade of Lights and a slower pace of life than many of Nevada’s other towns, Virginia City is a great place to celebrate a more traditional Christmas vacation with your family.
