Holiday Lights in Louisville - and surrounding areas
I remember my parents bundling us up in the car every Christmas to look at the holiday light displays. We always had our favorite streets and neighborhoods.
This year with everyone seeming to be in high Holiday Spirits we noticed that there were a ton of great light displays. We have even noticed areas like L'esprit getting into the lights.
I feel like everyone knows about Lake Forest, although it is still fabulous, we wanted to direct you to some lesser known places to see the lights -- Here is our tour that we put together.
Bundle up, grab a hot cocoa and follow us on our lights adventure.
Start in Norbourne Estates in St. Matthews off Breckenridge Lane. You can turn right and go around the entire circle to see the entire neighborhood before going straight down Nourbourne to Browns Lane.
At Browns Lane, turn right to go to Browns Park (this will take you behind Baptist East and Norton Women and Children’s Hospital). If you have time, stop and park to walk through the park. It is a veritable winter wonderland. If you think it’s too cold for a walk, it is December in Kentucky after all, you can see a lot of the lights from the road. Continue down Browns Lane, crossing over the Watterson.
You will come to Lowe Rd on the left. Turn here and take Lowe to Windemere Place Subdivision. You may encounter a lot of traffic at this point -- it is worth it! Turn right into Windemere Place and enjoy. Every house in the neighborhood gets involved. Last year there was even a Santa handing out candy canes.
This should take you at least an hour and a half to do the entire tour.

Both Bardstown and La Grange decorate like they are Hallmark movies and are beautiful to drive through.
