It’s not the greenest of holiday experiences so you’ll want to offset some carbon credits before you head out, but here’s a map of some of the Seattle area’s more extravagantly lit neighborhoods. Not sure we’d recommend trying to bike through any of the spots marked unless we are bringing *lots* of friends. For biking — and the definitely green walking alternative — stick to the local joys of your neighbor’s light strings.

Darn, I was hoping this was going to be a post about local Christmas lights around the CD. Anyone seen any stunners in our neighborhood?

I was also hoping for a post about local shows. Next year maybe, Scott?
Lots along 20th south, Davis Pl. S and Hiawatha betwnn Jackson and I-90
Mount Baker is lit up. Driving down 31st & east on McClellan, and south again on Mt. Rainier Drive, Hunter & 38th was pretty tonight, with a number of homes nicely decorated.
I think there’s a little healthy competition going on up there.
Hey all —
I wanted to do a local wrap-up of lovely CD lights, too, but just couldn’t find my own time or a contributor to do it. Hopefully you’ve noticed a growing stable of contributors on the site. I appreciate the “crowd sourced” tips and should have invited them! Honestly, I decided not to focus on that type of round-up because I’ve never had any luck encouraging the *enthusiasm* over on Capitol Hill :) No surprise given how cool we think we are! ;) If you have pictures from the Central District, send them to us at [email protected] and note the location so we can give people an idea on where to enjoy the show. Happy holidays!
