But rather than wander around without a plan, here are a few tips on where to go to find some of the best and brightest lights this season:

  • At the NH Motor Speedway, Loudon, you will be able to drive the track and witness a mile of lights, more than one million of them with hundreds of individual light displays. This year promises to be bigger, better and brighter than ever before.  Get the entire family into the Christmas spirit by heading to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway and seeing how over-the-top decorating looks while being able to brag you’ve driven around the track.
  • Drive through Downtown Exeter on Christmas Eve for the beautiful display of a trail of small bags with candles lit in them, which are placed along the streets throughout the center of town. Store fronts are decorated and the bandstand has its own lighted tree to complete the small town Christmas feeling.
  • In Claremont, 16 Francis Street, Mitchell’s Magic Christmas is a combination high tech and traditional holiday display with 50,000 lights.  The front yard display is all computer controlled and synchronized to music with shows starting on every quarter hour.  The side and back yards are a magical journey to the North Pole and a trip through many favorite TV holiday shows. Guests are invited to walk through the display to see everything. The display will run from 4:30 – 9:30 PM daily until New Year’s Eve.
  • 318 Daniel Webster Hwy, Merrimack, is a must see for a beautiful display each year!
  • Pine Ridge Drive, Candia, The entire house and yard is aglow with lights set to music. Collecting also for the Candia a Food Pantry. Thursday thru Sunday from 6-10 p.m.
  • Just off of Bunker Hill Ave., in Stratham, there is a beautiful display at a home just east of Heights Road on the left toward North Hampton-just before Wiggins Farm.
  • On Dover Point Road, Dover, by Tendercrop Farm, there is a home synchronized to music-almost across the street, then stay left you’ll come to it.
  • 100 Winnicut Road, Greenland, horses dressed as reindeer with Christmas music in the background to a light show. Santa over-looking it all. Great place to bring the kids. Stop on by, if anyone is outside you may get the chance to feed the reindeer some cookies.
  • On Pelham Road in Hudson there are several homes with beautiful light displays and one at 75 Pelham Road, which offers 150,000 lights, synchronized to music (trees seem to dance to music) for passers-by to enjoy.

There are many more light displays to see along your way to these suggested locations, so make holiday memories and go exploring. Maybe even have your entire family rate each display, and see which one wins as the overall favorite.
