Get Out! And See the Twinkling Lights!

​by Peggy Robin

Have you been logging in online at 7am every morning to try to snag some ZooLights tickets? Keep trying! Persistence may pay off....but in the meantime, there are plenty of other places that are all lit up for the holidays. There are walk-through lights, drive-through lights, light-filled holiday markets, and more.

Rather than list them all here, I'll point you to a good, regional guide:



​But let me also put in a plug for an old favorite, the walk-through lights display at Brookside Gardens (Wheaton, MD). It's $10 a person, and it's best to reserve as soon as you can, as many days are already sold out. Go here: ​

If you'd rather stay in a nice, warm car, there's a good drive-through light show out in Centreville, VA - The Bull Run Festival of Lights:​

Want to stay in DC? There's a "light maze" called Enchant at Nats Park, where you will also find ice skating, photos with Santa, and lots of food vendors. But it's pricey! The family package is $93, or $35 for an adult ticket. Ice skating is extra.​

​Is there anything great missing from the guide at ​ Light-seeking CP readers want to know. Just send in your recommendations to - and have a holiday of splendor and light!
The "Get Out" event of the week is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Thursdays.
