The nights might be longer, but the holiday lights around town are getting brighter and brighter. Our recommendation? Grab a cup of cocoa and bundle up for a magical drive through OKC. We’ve got the ultimate holiday lights guide right here:

Honorable Mention: This one’s not in the urban OKC area, but it’s definitely still worth the trip. Yukon’s Christmas in the Park is magical and totally free! Click here for details.

10.16th Street in the Plaza. This street is like a miniature Automobile Alley. Almost all of the shops have decorated their storefronts with stunning vertical strands of lights. And bonus: This area’s the perfect spot to grab dinner to go from Easy E Slice Shop!

9. Crystal Bridge at Myriad Gardens. Ok, so it’s not a street, and you have to leave your car, but their Illuminations event is definitely worth checking out sometime this holiday season. The lights are pure magic and the interactive experience is the perfect way to let kids share the wonder.

8. Automobile Alley. This is one of our favorite OKC traditions. Drive down Broadway to see all the storefronts decked out in their colorful best and snap a few pictures along the way. Then stop by KatieBug’s for some delicious hot chocolate and treats for your drive!

7. 30th & Walker. Hop over to the Paseo area to see lights around Central Park, Jefferson Park and Central Park. We love this area!

6. 19th Street in Linwood. This neighborhood has the most beautiful homes, and they’re holding a Christmas lights contest on December 14th, so the displays are more beautiful than ever.

5. 33rd Street in Edgemere Park. Take some time to drive through the streets of the wonderful Edgemere neighborhood. All of the homes are lovely, and the lights make the streets feel that much more quaint.

4. 13th Street in Heritage Hills. As always, Heritage Hills is the epitome of luxury and style. Their lights are always stunning, so you can’t go wrong driving through the entire neighborhood.

3. 18th Street in Mesta Park. Ok, this one was hard to pick. All of Mesta Park has wonderful light displays, so we recommend winding your way back and forth through the streets while you work your way north to 23rd Street.

2. 39th Street in Crown Heights. Driving down this street (and through the rest of Crown Heights) is like escaping to a Christmas village. The homes and lights are so tasteful and festive.

1. Wilshire Avenue/Grand Avenue. Nichols Hills is our number one spot to see the most beautiful holiday lights. Start at Grand or Wilshire and get lost in the Nichols Hills winter wonderland. There are amazing displays at every turn!
