Part 2: Christmas Lights Live in San Diego; Residential Displays
Even if you call San Diego home, you probably didn’t know how festive San Diego gets when it comes residential holiday lights and decorations. When family is in town and everyone wants to enjoy the holiday season in a relaxing way, a drive around town can be so rewarding. We’re continuing our guide for you to see all the best holiday lights live in San Diego, in the most efficient manner. We want to highlight the best of the best so you don’t miss a twinkle during this holiday season. Let’s start our guide in South County now, heading north.
Chula Vista is home to two residential holiday light attractions. Candy Cane Lane, one of the shortest streets in the county carrying so much Christmas punch attracts crowds throughout the holidays and despite traffic, it’s worth the look. Located just 7 miles south of downtown San Diego, it’s easy to take the I-5 south and exit on H Street, heading east. You’ll notice the cars that slow to turn right on 4th Avenue, and the officers managing traffic. Candy Cane Lane lives up to its name, thanks to the gusto of the homeowners who manage to decorate and light up the street more each year.
While you’re in Chula Vista, you will want to visit Christmas Circle, located on Whitney Street and Mankato Street, located between 1st and 2nd Avenues off H Street. The two streets form a loop that makes for fanciful easy viewing around the circle, as you admire with ooohing and ahhhing at the delightful displays.
