Illinois: Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo

Go wild this holiday season with a visit to Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo. An annual Windy City tradition, Zoo Lights features a 40-foot tall Christmas tree, more than 30 lit animal silhouettes, a tree canopy light walk, a 60-foot light tunnel, and lots of fun, family-friendly activities like holiday train rides plus s'mores and hot cocoa stations.

Maryland: Lights on the Bay

As Christmas descends on Annapolis, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County hosts Lights on the Bay each year at Sandy Point State Park. Pile the whole gang into the car and drive through the more than 70 stunning animated and stationary Christmas light displays set up along the road that follows the Chesapeake Bay.

Nebraska: Omaha Holiday Lights Festival

The tagline for the Omaha Holiday Lights Festival is "See Downtown Dazzle," and with more than 40 blocks of bulbs, this annual family-friendly event certainly lives up to that promise. You'll find the main display at the Gene Leahy Mall, but you can also visit the Christmas light displays in North Omaha, South Omaha, and the Old Market." ~ travelandleisure
