We are so lucky to live here. When the weather cools around here, in the desert, everyone gets in a festive mood. It is finally the holiday season. From Halloween on the temperatures dip and for many of us, this is why we live here. You don’t have to shovel it!
The holiday season is here. Draw your family close. Plan a holiday tradition that everyone loves in the desert. Go on a holiday light tour.
Arizona is famous for spectacular holiday light displays. With the weather in Phoenix so moderate, businesses and families can really take their time and put together fabulous arrangements.
Since there is no snow to contend with setting up holiday lighting is just easier here than in many other places around the country. Many of the holiday light displays in Arizona grow year after year. The mild winter does little damage to the holiday decorations here in the desert. Therefor these decorations last for many years.
This also means holiday decorating aficionados can add to their displays year after year, instead of having to replace decorations damaged by the ice and snow. One of the many benefits of our mild Arizona winters.
Driving around to see these fabulous displays is easier too. The roads aren’t icy and there is no snow storm to obstruct your view. This probably motivates people to go that extra mile when decorating their homes or business. They know you will be swinging by and they want to be ready!

Creating Your Own Holiday Light Tour Tradition
Mirage Limousines knows all the best holiday displays in town. We have been providing these light tours for over twenty years.
An AZ Central story from 2010 mentioned Mirage Limousines and invited its readers to enjoy sipping champagne while they take in the holiday lights in a limo. We couldn’t agree more. Although the story is little dated it is still a great source.
In order to tour the holiday lights in a limo you can be treated to our very own proprietary, trade secret, holiday light tour route.
Or you can make up a route of your own. Either way it will be the easiest holiday light tour you have ever taken.
No need to concern yourself with parking or traffic congestion. Sip on some champagne and leave the driving to us.
Our feelings will not be hurt if you decide not to use our trade secret tour and you decide to create one of your own.
To that end we provide the following information. We won’t give away our trade secret holiday light tour route. But we will gladly share with you what other people think is a good list of holiday light displays.
Holiday Light Tour Destinations
Don’t know where to start? That’s OK. We’ll show you. For the adventurous among you, here are a few suggestions.
There are many great sources to find holiday light displays in Arizona. One great source is the AZ Central. A local publication with years in the Phoenix market. AZ Central is the go to source for anything Arizona. They have created:

From the west side of Phoenix to the east, the city is lit up in full appreciation of this giving time.
