Every year families follow that time honored tradition of driving around looking for the best Christmas light displays. This weekend my family and I took part in this tradition and went out searching for the best Madison Christmas lights. As we were driving and stumbling across amazing places I thought, “How great would it be to have a list of the best Madison Christmas lights before we headed out driving all over town.” So, here is the beginning of a comprehensive annual list to help families just like mine find the best Madison Christmas lights.

As I build my list, I could use your help! I want this to be a complete list of all the best Madison Christmas lights. If you find Madison Christmas lights that aren’t on this map, please let me know! In particular, I am looking for places in Middleton, Monona, and Shorewood Hills, although, any awesome displays should be included! Here’s how to contact me:

Without further ado, here are my favorite Madison Christmas lights ranked in order from “Don’t Miss It” to “Hopefully the Kids Are Still Awake” (I lost one of mine about halfway through the list 🙂 ). Plus, don’t miss some of your favorites!  Listed below my chosen favorites are your contributions to the Madison Christmas Lights list.  I have also created a map to help you navigate quickly from one home to another.

Enjoy these beautiful displays and don’t forget to send me YOUR favorite Madison Christmas lights!

7006 Colony Dr., Madison – By far the most spectators, plan to circle around a few times to get the best view. Lots of electronically programmed lights featuring a few rope tree displays set to music. Plus some good old fashioned large, color bulbs.

2984 Cassidy Ct., Fitchburg – Amazing selection of lights and music from classic Christmas songs to fun, upbeat rock and roll. Get in the spirit with this dynamic display!

2550 Upham St., Madison – This one wins the prize for the most lights plastered on a house, Clark Griswold would be proud!

5678 Ashbourne Ln., Fitchburg – Impressive home with an equally impressive display.

2969 Bryn Wood Dr., Fitchburg – How did they get the lights up in those massive trees?!? Any ideas?

1025 S. Whitney Way, Madison – Right across from the street from the Vitense Driving Range. With so much to see, you might want to go hit a bucket of balls to get the full experience.

910 Whittier St., Madison – Another tasteful display to get you in the Christmas spirit.

And now…here are YOUR favorites!
