Bundling up the kids for a trip down your local Candy Cane Lane is right up there with braving the line to see Santa — totally worth the effort. With miles of twinkly lights, singing snowmen, two-story-tall Kris Kringles and even a carriage ride or two, these ‘hoods are decked out for the holidays. Click through to see our favorite decorated enclaves from coast to coast.

Los Angeles, CA – Wakefield Court – Saugus

With live music, Star Wars-themed decor and a self-guided tour of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, what's not to love? The lights are on from 5-10:30 p.m. and with a wait of over an hour during viewing rush hour, it’s an awesome idea to park and enjoy a brisk winter walk while oohing and aahing over the displays. Adding meaning to the season, there is a charity toy dropoff near where the band plays.
