St. Louis Area Christmas Light Displays To Visit This Year [PHOTOS]

It's the most wonderful time of the year: The time where we begin to bust out our ugly sweaters, stock up on hot chocolate and fill up our gas tanks to go tour the most beautiful holiday lights in the area.

Some are near, some are far, but nothing beats taking in the magic of the holiday season in the form of twinkling lights. Whether you're with your loved ones or by yourself, there are plenty of spots in the area to go look around. It all depends on how you are feeling — you can drive, walk or even rent a carriage at some of the places.

 

Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments or submit your event to our calendar. We'll update this list as the season changes.
