One of the most festive things to do during the holiday season is venturing to see the wonderful Christmas light displays that people set up.

I’m always amazed at how much time and effort families put into their displays for people from all over the state to come and check out.


My family and I recently moved to Monmouth County and we’re realizing how amazing our area is during the holidays.

My 2-year-old loves seeing the Christmas lights in our neighborhood so I decided to seek out some over-the-top light shows that we can go to. Turns out, Monmouth County has quite a list and every single one of them is very well known.

From Hazlet to Freehold to Wall, there’s a home in every corner of the county that has their lights on ready to entertain.

Some of these homes even have Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Grinch make an appearance on certain days of the week.


Some homes not only have their light displays in the yard, but decorate their windows like Macys in Herald Square.

You also might catch a house or two handing out Christmas treats like hot cocoa or candy canes.

Visiting these homes with your family can be a great evening out and can also become a tradition for years to come.

Here’s the list of great Christmas light displays in Monmouth County for you to take your family to and if I missed one that you know of, send me an email to add to the list:
