10 Towns With Dazzling Holiday Decorations
Come winter, towering trees and twinkling lights take over these towns. Explore 10 places across America that go all out with Christmas decor.
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains about 250 miles from St. Louis, this
Missouri town explodes with Christmas cheer during its six-week Branson
Area Festival of Lights. While the entire town is illuminated, one
of the brightest places to be is Silver Dollar City, a theme park
within Branson that embraces 1880s Ozark culture. A five-story,
special-effects Christmas tree towers over the park, lighting up in sync
with favorite Christmas songs. And every night during the Gifts of
Christmas Holiday Parade, eight musical floats adorned with 100,000
lights roll through the streets of the "city." About 1.5 million people
visit Branson each year to admire the town's amazing holiday displays.
