The Tacky Lights Tour - An Experience

When it comes to the best tacky Christmas light displays that can be seen in homes and some business areas, try signing up for a Tacky Lights Tour located in Richmond, Virginia.
There are no specific routes to go to, as they are located in different locations in various neighborhoods.

So, if you are visiting, it is recommended to sign up for one online, or you can perhaps find a visitor center in the area for any info.

Experience wise, we did a bus tour, so there was no hassle when it comes to the places or homes we should go.

The tacky lights tradition in Richmond has been around for 30 years! There should be at least 40,000 lights minimum requirement in order to be nominated and included on the list of approved houses to join the tacky lights contest.

The year 2016's grand price was $50,000.

Take note: - it's more convenient to take the tour aboard a tour bus, or trolley (depending on the weather), limos or vans.
There are professional tour companies that offer services to do it for you, so you don't need to risk driving on your own, and get lost...lol! You'll enjoy it better!

GardenFest of Lights at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens

If you want yourself surrounded by a half-a-million twinkling lights during the holidays, visit Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia, as you stroll along pathways filled with flowers aglow or pass under archways of lights decked out in sparkling streamers, bells, baskets, etc...




One of the highlights would be seeing the 14-ft. tree fully decorated with Victorian decorations!



As you enter in the central garden, you will be amused to see some colorful orbs as you pass through the elegant courtyard. You'll then see all kinds of colorful designs in various shapes and sizes all throughout the garden.


The garden's festival of lights is a tradition that's being celebrated every year with different theme each year. It usually starts late November to early January of the next year.

A Guided Tour To Colonial Williamsburg - Christmas Tour







Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia is popularly known as America's largest interactive history museum, located south of Washington D.C.

Your visit will bring you back in time during the American Revolution period. You will hear beating of drums, trilling rifles and meet and greet interpretive characters in their costumes as you stroll around. 

There are other more activities being done as well, especially for the kids too!

Our tour included a visit to a church and learned about the Historic Triangle as one of the highlights for an interesting narration and historical facts.




Also, see and enjoy some homes and lots of shops along Duke of Gloucester Street which are decorated for the Colonial Christmas.

If you enjoy shopping and dining, proceed to Merchant's Square.
