An off balance tree for a slightly off balance town. Keeping it traditionally weird, the OB “Charlie Brown” tree is always a sight to behold. Stroll down Newport Street under the Happy Holidays sign, take in the tree from the sand, or take a walk down one of California’s longest piers.

THE CARLSBAD CHRISTMAS HOUSE, CARLSBAD

This neighborhood has been setting up lights for almost 30 years now, and they have at least 100,000 bulbs waiting to amaze you, plus displays and themed yard decor. These families start their light displays before December even hits, usually right after Thanksgiving. To find this place, just look for Nordahl Rd. Between Tam O’ Shanter Dr. & Augusta Dr.

GARDEN OF LIGHTS, ENCINITAS

The Botanic Gardens get a lights face lift in December and everything gets wrapped in lights. The Gardens offer free marshmallows for toasting over a fire, and some nights even have horse drawn carriage rides and sledding (yes, with snow). But if you want those extras, come early and bring a little extra cash. Santa even makes an appearance at the Botanic Gardens, so start rehearsing your wish list.

CHRISTMAS CARD LANE, RANCHO PEÑASQUITOS

This street is home to colossal Christmas cards and Disney themed light and yard decor. The street’s non-holiday name is Oviedo St, off Black Mountain Road. This display started in 1982, and has since expanded from one street to most of the neighborhood, so there is no wrong way to turn onto Christmas Card Lane. The neighborhood keeps the lights on from dusk to 10 PM, but the best time to go is about 7:00 PM.
