Moovit's guide on how to get to your nearest festive lights display 2016

Published: December 3, 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. No matter where you’re from, there’s nothing better to give you the holiday feels than putting on a wooly hat & scarf, and getting out to see the magical festive lights.

This time of year can be expensive for many families, and seeing the sparkle of the colorful lights makes for a perfect evening out with friends or family that doesn’t need to break the bank.

We’ve made it even easier to get to all of the main locations to see the light displays by adding them as Points of Interest on the Moovit transit app.

Where can I see the festive lights?

At Moovit, we looked at the following local lists of best places to view the festive lights this month, so all you have to do is search for the one you want to visit. We’ll give you the best route via public transit to that location. If you want to make a night of it, you can decide on a couple of locations, and do a festive tour!

1. Los Angeles

2. New York City

3. Boston

4. San Francisco

5. Chicago

6. Washington DC

7. Philadelphia

8. Toronto

As well as finding them in the Directions tab, you may also notice some festive Christmas tree icons on the Stations tab map. These symbolize the presence of festive lights at that spot, so even if you go on a whim, you can get an easy route to them with Moovit.



The holidays are all about giving, so why not share this with your family and friends, so they can have a cheap and cheerful evening full of the glittering lights of the festivities!
