The Best Charlotte Christmas Light Displays

Charlotte is a great place to spend the Christmas season. In addition to all the shopping centers, parades and performances, Charlotte Christmas light displays are known as some of the best in the nation. People from all over the country come to experience our blend of beauty and enchantment.

As the region's premier holiday lighting company, Irrigation and Lighting Specialist has compiled this list of the best Charlotte Christmas light displays. If you are looking for something fun and festive to do this holiday season, these light displays should do the trick during the holiday season.

Christmas Town U.S.A. 

Just west of the Charlotte city limits, the Christmas spirit comes alive in the small town of McAdenville, also known as Christmas Town U.S.A. With a population of 700 residents, the town's elaborate holiday lighting displays attract 600,000 visitors annually - and for good reason. Both Yahoo! and Time Magazine call this one of the best displays in the country. Get a taste of the experience in the video below, and then go see it for yourself.

The lights will glow every night from December 2 to December 26. The suggested tour hours are Monday through Friday from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 5:30 to 11 p.m. 

Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens

Located in Southwest Charlotte, the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens presents the Holiday Lights at The Garden display every year. The natural beauty of the garden and the festive combination of over a half-million lights is truly something to behold. The garden also features a breathtaking Christmas tree with hundreds of orchids, live entertainment, carriage rides and a visit from Santa in a room designed to capture the essence of Christmas morning.

Tickets for adults are $12 and $6 for children.

Charlotte Motor Speedway 

What is traditionally used for roaring motors and screaming NASCAR fans becomes one of the largest holiday light shows in the region. Speedway Christmas and the Boulevard of Lights at the Charlotte Motor Speedway have more than three million lights and over 800 festive features throughout the three-mile drive-through display. All of the lights are synced to Christmas music that is delivered to your vehicle through the radio. To add a little excitement to your evening, you even get to take your vehicle around turns three and four of the race track at the end.

The infield is home to the Christmas Village. Inside you can find more family events like ice skating, a live nativity scene, a petting zoo and an arts and crafts section.

The light show is open daily from November 23 to December 30 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission is $20 per vehicle.
