Village Square, behind Farm Fresh on Ironbound Rd in Williamsburg 23185 has done something amazing!!!! And I think they may have increased the lighted balls that hang in the trees this year. You will see beautiful balls of different colored lights high in the trees. We drove through last night and it was well worth it. Just watch out for parked cars and people walking as you are looking up at the lights high in the trees! I took pictures but it did not do it justice at all – but it is pretty!
Jackson Drive, Williamsburg (enter off of Penniman Rd and you cannot miss it). Tune your radio to 87.9 FM and you will have the holiday music from this house sent through your car radio (especially nice on a cold night). Thanks for the video – Mike & Susan!
Fox Ridge off Centerville in Williamsburg 23188 – we hear you can’t miss it – just follow the glow of lights! Will get you a picture as soon as one is submitted or we take one ourselves!
Indigo Park Subdivision off John Tyler and 199 – A reader below let us know about this one: 105 Vaiden Dr (Indigo Pk subdivision)
Longhill Station Subdivision off Centerville in Williamsburg, 23188. It’s on the main road when you turn into the subdivision across from the pool. They also have more decorations on the other side of the house, it’s just hard to get it all in one picture.
Centerville Road and Richmond Road (behind the Harris Teeter) in Toano, this house looks like a little Ginger Bread house. Stars hanging from the trees light the way to this sweet house.
White Hall Subdivision, in Toano (right before you get to Andersons corner) has some beautiful Christmas lights throughout the neighborhood! There are a lot of decorates since the neighborhood has a contest to see who can decorate the best.
