These homes take decorating for the holidays extremely seriously.

Sure NJ has some amazing public light displays, but if you want to avoid the fees for some of the drive-thru or amusement parks, head to these local NJ towns and houses that really get all decked out for the holidays. Call or check their Facebook sites in advance for any changes in dates and times, some light shows are only performed on weekends or at certain times, or don't run in inclement weather. We also recommend checking tackylighttour.com and christmaslightfinder.com for updated listings of newly decorated houses.
