Richmond Made ‘Travel Leisures’ List of Top Christmas Light Cities.
“If you’re looking for fantastically tacky Christmas displays, Richmond takes the cake with its “Tacky Lights Tour.” Starting December 2nd, the city and its most enthusiastic families swallow an unfathomable electric bill to impress locals and visitors alike. A few homes you should take note of include 9604 and 9060 Asbury Court (the most lights at a staggering one million), 9215 Venetian Way (the prettiest, seen from across the lake), 8720 River Road (best for car viewing), and the whole stretch of Monument Avenue (traditional, classic-style lighting). Book optimal viewing for your party via limo tours of the biggest neighborhood attractions, or if you’re driving aim for weekdays to avoid traffic jams. For more lights and a little more zen, head to Dominion GardenFest of Lights at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.”
Take note that the 8720 River Road location is taking the year off.
