Who doesn't like some Christmas Lights? Christmas is super close, and if you've got family coming into town, there's hardly a better way to entertain. Find out where the best places to see Christmas lights displays in Central Alabama are with our handy-dandy list down below.
East Poplar Lights
This Christmas lights display is set up every year and synchronized to a local radio station. It’s an epic showing, and the streets are packed almost every night near the end of December – it’s seriously one of the best places to see Christmas lights. Fun if you’re in the Christmas spirit, but I wonder how the neighbors feel…
Address: 122 E. Poplar Street, Prattville, AL
Millbrook's Village Green Park
Village Green Park is illuminated each night with lights of all different types. It’s a perfect spot to take the family on a brisk winter night, and sometimes there are even vendors or events happening as an added bonus.
Address: 3113 Park Court #3177, Millbrook, Alabama
Downtown Prattville is one of the best hangout spots in warmer weather, and its attraction doesn’t fall off in the winter months. With tons of activities and a host of awesome lights to check out, you can rest assured Prattville is a can’t-miss destination for you and the family!
Address: 127 W Main Street, Prattville, AL
Thyno Zgouvas' Christmas Wonderland
Thyno Zgouvas’ Christmas Wonderland is one of the best annual offerings from the River Region. He and his family go all-out each and every year. Honestly, the picture for this one doesn’t do it justice. You go out to this one with the Central Alabama Weekend seal of approval.
Address: 7525 Mossy Oak Dr, Montgomery, AL
Christmas Lights Festival at the Montgomery Zoo
Like Thyno’s big event, the Christmas Lights Festival at the Montgomery Zoo is one of the premiere stops each holiday season. See the animals in a completely new light, and enjoy a night out with friends and family! This really is one of the best places to see Christmas lights in Montgomery.
Address: 2301 Coliseum Pkwy, Montgomery, AL

Andalusia Candy Land
If you’re up for a small trip outside the River Region, you’re in for a real treat. Andalusia’s Candy Land offers kids a bunch of fun activities, and adults can spend some time admiring the beautiful decorations. It’s a whole affair, and events are run on the weekends to get people out and about.
Address: 505 E. Three Notch Street, Andalusia, Alabama
601 Putnam Street
This unnamed display is a crowd favorite every year. It gets flooded with visitors most any night where rain isn’t part of the equation, and for good reason: there are a metric ton of lights stuffed onto this small property. Nestled right next to the Cramton Bowl in downtown Montgomery, it’s easy-access, too!
Address: 601 Putnam Street, Montgomery, AL
'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation' Display
One Wetumpka family went all-out for Christmas this year, creating a themed display based off the classic ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.’ It’s one of the more unique destinations on this list, and it’s only there ’til Christmas Day, so hurry up and check it out!
The ‘Christmas Vacation’ display is one of the best places to see Christmas lights – see our video past this link.
Address: 707 River Oaks Ct Wetumpka, AL
Wind Creek Wetumpka
Wind Creek Casino in Wetumpka isn’t a place you’d think of when deciding where to go for Christmas lights – but we can tell you that it’s a can’t-miss spot! They’ve got a ton of great, fun lights on the drive in, and the decorations once you’ve parked are stellar.
Address: 100 River Oaks Dr, Wetumpka, AL
The Shoppes at Eastchase
Eastchase is the premiere shopping area for Montgomery, and because of that, they want folks to remember the Christmas spirit as they go from store-to-store. They’ve got some awesome decorations up, and a smattering of lights are part of the equation. It’s a good time!
