It’s that time again. The weather cools and everyone gets in a festive mood. It is the holiday season. Families draw close. Parties are planned. Gifts are being bought.
One holiday tradition that everyone loves are the holiday lights. Here in Arizona homeowners and businesses go all out. With no snow to contend with setting up holiday light displays is a little easier than in other places.
Not only is the set up easier without all that snow, but driving around enjoying them is easier too. Here at Mirage Limousines we want to make it even easier to get out and enjoy the fabulous holiday displays around Phoenix. Sit back and relax in one of our luxury vehicles as we taken on the hassle of traffic and parking.
Where the Lights Are
Mirage Limousines knows all the best holiday displays in town. We have been providing holiday 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 enjoy the holiday lights in a limo. We couldn’t agree more.
From the west side of Phoenix to the east, the city is lit up in full appreciation of this giving time. Don’t know where? That’s OK. We’ll show you. For the adventurous among you, here are a few suggestions.
West Side Holiday Lights
Glendale Holiday Lights
Glendale is a suburb of Phoenix, AZ. A bedroom community located west of Phoenix Glendale has a long history as a farming community. Glendale has been known to go all out with its holiday lights downtown. Glendale Glitters, as it is called, sports 1.5 million lights covering more than 16 blocks in Historic Downtown Glendale. It is a budget-friendly event and very family-oriented. The holiday lighting season has grown to attract more than 275,000 annually. It runs from Thanksgiving weekend to mid-January.
The Largo Residence
While you are over on the west side, don’t miss the Largo family’s holiday display. The Largo’s have a music-synched, ever-changing curved light tree towering high on top of their roof, the rest of their home is adorned with awe-inspiring displays as well. 5309 W. Barbara Ave. Glendale, AZ 85302
