Where to See Washington's Best Holiday Lights

Where to See Washington's Best Holiday Lights

Washington's most spectacular attractions are even more switched on during the holidays. Unpredictable and idiosyncratic, the light shows differ from any you may have seen.

  • Ivar's Clam Lights

    Of all Washington's light displays, Ivar's Clam Lights are the most idiosyncratic. Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park is transformed by the arrival of bright Christmas scenes and dancing clams. Enjoy a spot of clam chowder at Ivar's or board the Argosy Christmas Ship, which docks here at least once each holiday season.

  • Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium

    There's no more dynamic display of Christmas lights than that at Point Defiance Zoo, where Santa arrives in a diving suit, ready to plunge into the aquarium. Explore trails through the animal-themed light displays to warming treats and hot chocolate.

  • Bellvue Botanical Gardens

    Some 500,000 lights twinkle in the scenic setting of Tacoma's Botanical Gardens. Keeping with this context, the garden is illuminated with nature-themed displays, including sparkling spiderwebs, oversized butterflies, and glittering peacocks.

  • Fantasy Lights

    Don't miss out on the electrifying drive-through display on show just outside of Tacoma. Two miles of glowing Christmas decorations are certain to fortify flagging Christmas spirits. The light display is popular and so pretty you won't even mind the occasionally slow-paced flow of traffic through the exhibit: more time to twinkle!

Best Places for Couples to Spend Christmas in Washington

Whether you and your beau are indulging in a glass at a Victorian winter wine garden or grabbing a selfie amid snowfall, Washington proffers plenty of romantic holiday entertainment. Travel to a Bavarian village for Christmas or board a floating Santa's sleigh decked in twinkling lights.

  • Christmas Ship Festival

    Like Santa's sleigh, Christmas comes to you when you sail away with Washington's Christmas Ship Festival. The Christmas Ship, with a deck illuminated with hundreds of twinkling Christmas lights, transports you between Christmas celebrations in Seattle and Tacoma. Float on Puget Sound between bonfire-lit stops. A choir and Christmas parade complete this unforgettable and uniquely Washington experience.

  • Victorian Country Christmas, Puyallup

    Treat yourself to a little Christmas retail therapy at Washington State Fair Events Center, which puts on a special show during the festive season. At the Victorian Christmas Village, step back in time to Christmases of yore and celebrate the holiday the old-fashioned way. Join in with choral concerts, try Victorian treats, and hunt for gifts at more than 500 pop-up stores.

  • Leavenworth

    Those in search of the romance of Old-World Christmases need not look further than Leavenworth. This alpine village is especially switched on during the holiday season, when the Christmas Lighting Festival draws crowds from out of town. Bavarian-style buildings nestle comfortably beneath snow-dusted peaks. Make your way to the Nussknacker Haus to marvel at the wooden nutcrackers, or shop for traditional Christmas decorations at Kris Kringl. Couples can cozy up at Icicle Brewing, where the light brews are local and the bar snacks are sophisticated.
