There’s no better time to take an evening drive than Christmastime. The streets are filled with holiday cheer and twinkling lights, blow-up santas wave as you pass by, and you might even spot the occasional reindeer surveying the scene in preparation for the big day. Driving around to look at all the festive Christmas lights is an important holiday tradition for many across the globe, and Central Arkansas is a fantastic place to do it. For an even brighter Christmas season, visit these places that are sure to fill you with childlike wonder.
Arkansas State Capitol
If you’re looking for an iconic Little Rock Christmas attraction, you have to head over to the state capitol downtown. For more than 75 years, the capitol has been illuminated by thousands of holiday lights for the entire month of December. This year, the display will feature one of the largest Christmas trees Arkansas has ever seen. You won’t want to miss it!
Holiday Trail of Lights at Sherwood’s Enchanted Forest
If you’re looking for a drive-through holiday attraction that you don’t even have to get out of the car for, Sherwood’s Enchanted Forest Trail of Lights is the place to go. The trail is a mile and a half long, with beautiful light displays lining the path. You can view it from 6:30 to 9:30pm through the last day of December.
Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs
There’s no other place that does a holiday light display like Garvan Gardens in Hot Springs. The attraction is always a sight to behold, but especially around the holidays. The gardens display more than 1.7 million holiday lights with themes ranging from elements of nature to holiday themes. This one does cost $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 6-12, but it’s well worth the price.
The Promenade at Chenal
The Merry & Bright Holiday Celebration at The Promenade at Chenal is a great place for some family holiday fun. You can walk around to enjoy the lights and trees, and if you go on a Saturday in December you might even spot Santa and Mrs. Claus. If you ask nicely, they’ll let you take photos with them — completely free!
