Christmas Light Displays In South Florida

As I promised, here is a listing of Christmas Light Displays in the Tri-County area. Write down the ones that interest you, break out your GPS, some hot chocolate and candy canes as you hit the road! Please leave a comment here or on the Hot Momma's of Broward County Facebook page of which were your favorites.

I have broken this list down by County.

I have found a decent amount of Holiday displays in Broward and a TON in Palm Beach.

I am surprised by how few Holiday displays I was able to find in Miami- I know they are out there- it is just a matter of me finding them. If you find one worth showing off to others, jott down the address and message it to me.

I will continue to update this listing as I discover more locations.

PLEASE keep in mind, I have found these locations on the internet, it is hard to determine at times how accurate and up to date the information is. Please do not hold it against me if some of the locations are not putting up displays.

  1. Thank you so much. This list is very useful

  2. Thank you for taking the time to make this list. I have been searching on the internet for over an hour and all I had so far was tradewinds!

    1. YAY! So glad it has been helpful to so many!

    Law Residence, Plantation, Broward
    7730 NW 11th Place
    The only system that lets you choose the song you want to see the lights dance to from the control box on the sidewalk. See http://lights.donlaw.com

  4. Shady Lakes is my favorite! Thanks for an awesome list!

    1. Good to know, love getting feedback on the favorites! Glad the list is helpful!

  5. The best list I have found! Thank you!

  6. First, I'd like to thank you very much for making this list. We decided to go to a few houses in Plantation tonight. We first went to the Law's Residence on 11th Place. It was nice but simple. We then headed over to the homes on 26th St. in Plantation. We had to park along with everybody else along Old Hiatus and walk down to the house about a long 1/2 block. There was a police officer on duty at the end of the street. There were many, many cars and people. Very organized and friendly people. It is 2 houses together. One of the houses has a display that you can walk through on the side of the house. Beautiful display with many, many lights and they go off and on according to the music. It was very nice to see how they kept Christ in Christmas. It was an amazing display. We then went on Old Hiatus again just south of Sunrise to the Hyatt Home on 14th St. You can park on Old Hiatus also, but we found later that they have an empty field across from their house that can be used for parking. This house is right on the corner. This house has many, many different things to look at. The little kids were in their glory. Very large house and yard. They even had a movie running with little chairs for the kids to sit and watch if they wanted. Kids will love this house. Thanks again for this list!! Will attempt some more houses later.

    1. Thanks for the input- very helpful for others!

  7. Hi, I tried to google the address u posted 107 manor dr lake worth but noting comes up. Is it possible there is a typo? Trying to collect addresses to take kids for. Ride tomorrow night.

    1. It is possible it was a typo- let me dig through my notes and double check- sorry about that!

  8. Thanks for the great list! Just Checked out the two of the homes in Plantation Hyatt Extreme Christmas and the one 26th Street both were incredible and different. We also found one in Sunrise that has a radio station you can tune into if you don't want to get out:
    10660 NW 32nd Street, Sunrise

  9. Snug Harbor Drive, West Palm Beach was BEAUTIFUL.... I'm new to Fl and had no idea where to go around the Port Saint Lucie area... Thanks for the info....

    1. Thank you for the feedback, glad you enjoyed your lights....

  10. First of all, thank you for posting the addresses... My favorite was in Plantation on 26th street, second runner up was also Plantation on 14th street. And the surprise was on 57th Ave in Hollywood, two blocks from my house ! I had no idea, modest but very nicely done...
    Kathy R...thanks for the parking tips, the evening was perfect !

    1. So glad it was helpful, I appreciate the feedback!

  11. Thank yoy so much for putting this together. Absolutely wonderful. Merry Christmas.

  12. I ggogled the one on Shady Lakes blvd but had no luck finding it. We drove up PGA blvd to central but left us at a park. Anyone have an idea where it is exactly?? Thanks. We drove around 2 hours looking tot it.

  13. I do not live in that area, so I am not much help. I hope someone is able to let us know, otherwise I will remove it. So sorry it was not accurate.

  14. I'm so excited!!! My family and I will have a blast with these events for the holiday!

  15. SE 6th Street between 25th and 26th Avenues in Pompano Beach
    This location has at least 10 homes that do lights, anchored by a very large home display at the east end of the street. The best bet is to park alongside the cemetery at 25th Ave and 4th st. and walk the street which becomes almost a defacto pedestrian plaza on weekend nights.
