Christmas Lights Silicon Valley Guide to Find Bay Area Holiday Lights
by Silicon Valley guide and REALTOR® Michelle Carr Crowe

Many families share a holiday tradition of seeing Bay Area Christmas Lights. From San Jose to Livermore, and Sacramento to San Francisco, here's an easy guide to find the best Christmas light displays in any Northern California location, from Santa Clara County to Alameda, Tehama and Sacramento counties.

California Christmas Lights (formerly Lights Of The Valley), a website guide created by new-to-Livermore resident Alex Duorov back in December of 1999, has seen over 1.4 million views.

Originally designed to help families like his own find confirmed Bay Area holiday lights displays (and avoid disappointing wild goose chases), California Christmas Lights evolved into a searchable database of verified Christmas light displays.

Duorov started documenting the best Christmas light displays in Livermore 14 years ago. The site now offers listings for holiday Lights throughout the Bay Area, from Santa Clara to Alameda to Contra Costa counties and many others in the state of California. California Christmas Lights also has its own Facebook page, too.

In Marinwood, Calif., the Mize family’s Mickey Mouse Christmas house is being featured on the new reality television series “The Great Christmas Light Fight” which airs on Monday nights. The Mize’s home will be featured on December 23, 2013 segment.

San Jose’s famous “Christmas in the Park” display of animated holiday scenes and nightly musical entertainment is free and runs daily until midnight, from Thanksgiving through December 31. The biggest challenge is finding (and paying for) parking. The Bay Area light rail system is a great option for seeing “Christmas in the Park” and avoiding traffic.

Below are links to Christmas Lights in Santa Clara County, Cupertino, Palo Alto, San Jose and more.

Seeing the creativity of Bay Area houses decorated with festive Christmas lights has nothing to do with my real estate business of helping Silicon Valley families buy and sell homes-holiday lights just fill me with Christmas spirit that I want to share with others.
