West Michigan Loves Christmas Lights!

I love looking at Christmas lights with my kids!

I did it when I was growing up with my parents, and now I look forward to looking at Holiday Lights every year with my kids in West Michigan.

Grand Rapids Mi Christmas lights put to music

We bundle up, grab some snacks, put on the holiday tunes and set off.   Each kid chooses an item to count up while we’re looking at lights.  Maybe it’s Santas, candy canes, deer, or penguins… whatever the item, it keeps them engaged and excited the whole time.

Hopefully your family will be able to join in the fun, too! To help you find the Holiday lights around Grand Rapids we’ve put together the an Interactive Holiday Christmas Lights Map!

When you click on a map icon, more information will be revealed (including reader comments) about each stop.  Also, pan to Muskegon, Kent City, and Greenville for more houses.)
