If you are looking for a fun activity to do before or even after the holidays, consider hopping in the car and going to admire some christmas light displays around Cleveland. All you have to do is grab some friends or a few family members (preferably at least one person with a license) and go driving around town. If you want you to make this an even more festive event you can bring christmas cookies and hot chocolate and play some fun christmas music. After the stress of midterms and holiday shopping it might be nice to kick back and take a nice relaxing drive around the area to see beautiful light displays. Regardless of who and what you choose to bring, here are the best sights to drive too in Cleveland:

  1. Winterfest at Public Square: Go downtown to see the lights surrounding public square, the ice rink, and a 48-foot tall blue spruce tree to top it off

2. Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds Magic of Lights:  This is a drive through display with about two miles of lights to admire. 25$ at gate, goes from Nov. 24th- Jan. 4th.

3. Strongsville Winter Wonderland: This event has christmas characters carriage rides, and even reindeer to add to the festive holiday light display. 

4. Crocker Park: Has many places to shop and will going from store to store you can see the 50- foot tall tree in the middle of the mall, along with beautifully lit archways to walk through.
