Winter City Lights Named a Top Holiday Lights Attraction in the Country


Holiday Lights Hot Spot Gears Up for this Holiday Season

OLNEY, Md., Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Winter City Lights, open now through December 30th, has captured national attention and high rankings for its one of a kind light displays, flagship Christmas tree, and charming 1.5 mile illuminated path through the woods. This magical holiday lights event, located in the heart of the Washington DC, Baltimore and Northern Virginia area, has already been named as a top holiday lights attraction in the country by Country Living #2, Pioneer Woman #5 and House Beautiful #15.

This Christmas lights experience spans 18-acres, features one million lights, and is designed to be an immersive holiday lights festival offering guests a magical experience. From a 30-foot high towering snowman that greets guests when they arrive, to the most technologically advanced 52-foot Christmas tree in the country that features 128 light strands cascading from the top of the tree, to the 1.5 mile trail that stuns all who walk it, Winter City Lights is the hot spot for the Mid-Atlantic region.

“Winter City Lights is the perfect place to bring a date or the entire family,” said John Dixon, Winter City Lights. “Whether it’s cozying up around a fire pit making smores, enjoying freshly made pizza and rich hot chocolate, basking in the million twinkling lights, or racing down our Penguin Plunge Snow Tubing slide, there truly is something for everyone.”

Winter City Lights features:

  • 18-acres of Christmas lights and a 1.5-mile trail of lights in the woods covered with hundreds of illuminated displays and light decorations, including the glass Prism Tree and a 40-foot high Gold Willow Tree.
  • A 52-foot, fully orchestrated Christmas tree with a canopy of 128 light strands cascading down with holiday light and music shows and “snow” every 30 minutes.
  • The Penguin Plunge Snow Tubing Slide, the #1 attraction at Winter City Lights, featuring eight lanes and a new, longer slide area for even greater thrills this year.
