It is always fun to drive around and look at all the pretty Christmas lights during this time of year! I shared earlier about the incredible neighborhood full of lights on Bainbridge Circle in Murrieta here, but wanted to share some other houses that are worth seeing too in Temecula and Murrieta as well. Here’s the Christmas lights Temecula map for 2016.
As I mentioned before the entire Bainbridge Circle neighborhood goes all out and you can either drive thru or walk around (that’s what we do with hot cocoa) from 5:30-10pm each night until just after Christmas Day! Bainbridge Circle in Murrieta is located here and is great to go with friends or make it a tradition with your family! Here is a link to a Youtube video I took of the lights on Bainbridge.
The City of Temecula puts together a list of winning houses and I will soon attach a Christmas lights Temecula map of where those houses are so you can view them.
It is always fun to load the kids up, grab some hot cocoa and just venture out to see what you can find yourself! I would start with houses in your neighborhood, that is easy, and then venture beyond that in Temecula and Murrieta. If you are interested in a drive there are obviously more neighborhoods like Candy Cane Lane in Corona that we have visited many times….they really deck it out too!
Brewen’s Trolley has created a holiday tour of businesses and homes that are lit up and noteworthy, and will serve festive drinks along the way on your tour as well.
Additional holiday activities in Temecula:
I have a list of Santa, where he is, information on the Temecula parade, ice skating and more here. Below are some additional holiday FUN things for the family.
Temecula City Hall’s bells are synchronized to lights and music every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening at 7 p.m., 8 p.m, and 9 p.m. This is a pretty cool show, and then you can walk around Old Town….many of the local boutiques have festive decorations and there is a holiday shop with ornaments and holiday trinkets in Old Town too!
There is a holiday area with a small “Polar Express” train in Temecula. There are bounce houses, and they serve hot chocolate there as well.
