Peacock Lane, Portland, Ore.
Residents of this southeast Portland neighborhood make sure their
holiday light displays live up to their street's colorful namesake. A
tradition since the 1920s, Peacock Lane's decor definitely has glimmer
and glitz, but it also strives to be different, with rotating Christmas
trees and lifelike replicas of Santa and Frosty the Snowman. You can
safely stroll down Peacock Lane on "pedestrian only" nights, or pick up a
ride in a horse-drawn carriage that will deliver you to the
neighborhood and back to your car in style.
