Christmas Light Displays in Chicagoland
We are looking for Christmas light displays in the Chicagoland area to see when my parent’s come to town. I have always loved driving around to see the beautiful holiday lights this time of year so this year we want to make it extra special and try something new.
We have decided to visit the Winter Wonderland at the Cuneo Mansion and Gardens in Vernon Hills, IL.

Another light display that intrigues me is the Chicago Botanic Garden Wonderland Express. I have been to the Botanic Gardens a few times in the Spring and Summer and I love it. I can only imagine the Wonderland Express will be just as awesome.

I would also love to one day check out the holiday shows at the local zoos. That would be fun don’t you think?

Of course you have the lights that are downtown Chicago like the Christmas tree at Daley Plaza, Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier and more. We are going to stay local and not venture into the city although I would love to make the rounds in downtown Chicago sometime.
Do you have any favorite Chicagoland Christmas light displays?
