We’ve been hearing a lot about Christmas lights in St. George, so we finally spent a weekend in southern Utah in December. We were amazed at the awesome shows, not just in St. George, but in some of the smaller, surrounding communities. There were a few places that were better than the shows in the more populated Utah and Salt Lake Counties. We were able to make it to quite a few, but we feel like we’ve only started. Hopefully our list of St. George Christmas Lights will give you a good start on finding fun Christmas adventures in Utah. Make sure to check out our Christmas Acvivities in Utah post for other Christmas activity ideas.
Christmas on Harmony
This display is great because you can get out of your car and walk through the lights. This family spends about a month getting everything all set up for visitors to enjoy. There are lights all around the yard, plus a few different screens with fun scenes. Make sure to stop by the Grinch (he is motion censored), and he will say something fun. You’ll find this home at 2183 S Harmony Place, Saint George, UT.
Red Hills Desert Garden Christmas Light Display
We love the Red Hills Desert Garden any time of year. It is a beautiful little garden filled with desert plants to walk through and enjoy. They decorate the garden for the holidays and we have visited for Halloween, but we liked the Christmas lights even better. Everything was covered in lights and there was fun music playing, too. This is a free event, and it is wheel-friendly.
Santa Clara area (under 15 minutes from St. George)
We found 3 homes in the Santa Clara area that are worth stopping by near St. George.
Camp Christmas Project
This house is amazing! The owners have transformed their yard into a little village. The homes are hand crafted and you can go inside and explore, if you are elf-sized. Our young boys had a blast. There is also a large Christmas tree that you can walk through and a light maze. On Fridays and Saturdays they sell hot cocoa and treats to raise money for local charities. This is the only time the yard is open to walk through. On other evenings you can look at the lights from the sidewalk or the car. Find this home at 2810 Cottonwood Circle, Santa Clara, Ut.
2485 Scenic Drive
This house is bright! The lights cover the entire home and yard. We liked driving past this house a few times to see all the different things in the yard. There is a cute little Nativity. Make sure to see the neighbor’s lights, too. You can also park and walk by if you’d like.
3617 Chalet Dr.
This house has their lights timed to music, and is full of a lot of blow-up decorations. You can drive or walk by this home, but we liked driving so we could hear the music (they do have music playing outside). We were especially pleased to see the Buffalo Bills flags since we are big fans.
LaVerkin (under 30 minutes from St. George)
One of our followers told us that we needed to visit this home in LaVerkin, and we are so glad that they recommended it to us. It was one of the best houses we have ever seen. Christmas on The Farm in Laverkin has so many lights, and most of them are animals. This made the display so fun. If you’re down near St. George, definitely stop! There were a few beautiful homes nearby that we drove passed, too! The address is 241 N. Apple Way, LaVerkin, Utah.
Toquerville (25 minutes from St. George)
Since we were near LaVerkin, we had heard of the Old Church road lights in Toquerville, so we headed here next. This light display involves a few houses and yards. They are on both sides and some of the lights even stretch across like tunnels. Head to the corner of Old Church Rd and Ash Creek Rd in Toquerville and you can’t miss this fun display. Drive down the road, and then flip around and drive back so you can see both sides.
Other St. George Christmas Light Ideas
We had so many spots on our list, but here are a few that have been recommended to us as great St. George Christmas Lights.
The entire park is full of Christmas lights, and if you are lucky, you might be able to grab some tickets to ride the Polar Express (tickets sell out quickly and are purchased at the city office). This park is located at 1851 S. Dixie Drive.
St. George has a cute little town square with a great splash pad and carousel for the summer, but they also decorate the down town for Christmas. This is a fun stop at 50 S. Main Street, St. George.
Christmas in the Canyon at Tuachan
Tuachan puts on a huge Christmas event. You can walk around and enjoy the lights for free, but they also have two Nativity performances each night, as well as train rides. Both of these events cost extra, but are supposed to be a lot of fun. We really hope to visit this event soon.
Use the Hedgehog Electric Christmas Lights map for other great light displays in the St. George area. They put this together every year.
