Best Places to Enjoy The Christmas Lights in Sarasota

Everyone knows that some of the most spectacular displays of holiday lights can be found in Sarasota. While there are bundles of flashy displays that’d definitely be worth a visit from any tourist or local, this article will only include some of the best ones.

With that said, the first one on the list is Grace Baptist Church’s Christmas at Grace, which features over half-a-million mesmerizing lights. This establishment is located at 8000 Bee Ridge Road, and operates daily through December 26.

The second place on this list is Benderson Development’s shopping centers on North Cattleman Road and Cooper Creek Boulevard along University Parkway. These massive structures are lined with holiday lights and feature stunning towers – both of which serve as an excellent sight.

Third is the Sarasota Jungle Garden’s Millions of Lights Magical Nights, which runs through December 24, 6pm to 9pm. In addition to Christmas lights with fire pits and live holiday music courtesy of the Cory Music Show, kids visiting the area are likely to get a kick from the Santa Claus here.

Moreover, a special feature that makes this place even more worth the trip is live performances by Magician Nathan Coe Marsh, who perform twice every night at 7pm and 8pm.  

Fourth, we have the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Lights in Bloom, which takes place from December 15 to 23, as well as on the 26th and 27th; 6pm to 9pm. Standout features of this magnificent display include 3D illuminated snowflakes plus light displays, a dragonfly puppet, and a snowfall tree.

Fifth and last place to visit is St. Armands Circle Park, which is filled with stunning lights that make great eye-candy. Also, this area is great for those who’d like to relax a little from shopping or dining along St. Armands.
