Christmas “Light-Seeing”

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is packing up some hot chocolate and hitting the road to tour Lubbock’s best Christmas lights. Here are some of our favorite private residences and public spaces that feature the best lights in town!

  • Vintage Township – Some of Lubbock’s most unique homes live in Vintage Township, a neighborhood characterized by wider, tree-lined side walks, expansive porches and unique architecture. The community’s lighted trees and homes make for a bright and fun experience perfect for a family outing!
  • 59th Street and Indiana Avenue – This home is famous for their eccentric and creative Christmas lights that jam out to a tune. Check out this video that KAMC news anchor, Julie Musgrave got of the house…you’ll really enjoy the song this year!
  • 8308 CR 6940 – If you’re in the Llano Estates neighborhood in Lubbock, you’ll have to check out this house that synchronizes their Christmas lights to the radio! Tune into 101.9 to see the home light up with the music.
  • 82nd Street and Xenia Avenue – A trio of homes right behind the KFC and Tractor Supply Co. on west 82nd Street synchronize their lights together for an unforgettable Christmas light experience! Drive west down 82nd Street, and turn down Xenia Avenue. You can’t miss it!
  • 66th Street and Avenue S – This home is a pro when it comes to synchronized Christmas lights! The owners have been showcasing their holiday spirit through lights for three years. This is a must-see on your tour around the city.
  • Santa Land – Each year, Lubbock Parks and Recreation put together a memorable and magical place full of Christmas cheer. Santa Land, at Mackenzie Park, is open

  • Ransom Canyon – Put the family in the car, pour some hot chocolate into a thermos, turn on the Christmas music and make the short drive east to Ransom Canyon, Texas. This is Christmas light viewing at its finest. Known for their eclectic and beautiful architecture, the homes in Ransom Canyon will leave you in awe during your tour. Who knows, you might even see Santa and his eight reindeer fly through the starry-canyon sky.
