What neighborhood has the best Christmas lights?

by Richard S. » Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:53 pm

I can't believe I don't already know this, but what neighborhoods around town have the best Christmas lights? It seems as if every city I've lived in has one or two go-to areas for driving around and looking at the lights.

Richard, for whatever reason (the economy? Political polarization? :mrgreen: ) this practice seems to have cooled down in Louisville. When I worked at the papers, we used to do a feature story about this every Christmas, and as I recall, a neighborhood around Shively called Bonnie Lea (?) used to be the place to go. I doubt it still is. Much to my amazement, that was ... um ... 20-plus years ago. :oops:

I've heard, though, but can't confirm, that the tract mansions in Lake Forest Subdivision (restaurant reference, close to Jasmine and where Gourmet To Go used to be) put on a pretty good show.

See this discussion from a few years ago. The comment I made about Windemere subdivision still applies and the map link still works. Have fun.....

Excellent, thanks, Jay! I'm embarrassed that I didn't remember that discussion.

We did the Windmere subdivision last night. It was very nice. Thanks for the suggestion.

Lake Forrest (as Robin suggested) and Briar Hill ( off 22) are pretty flashy.
