Although many holiday traditions are being altered or skipped this holiday season, there is still cheer to be found! In many places, including Philadelphia, a festive activity that is still socially-distant is viewing Christmas lights around the town.

Whatever you’re looking for this year, there are multiple options for a festive outing either walking outdoors or driving past in your car. Check out the list below for the top spots to get lost in the twinkle of Christmas lights!
