Christmas lights are my absolute favorite thing about the holiday season. I will search high and low for the brightest, prettiest and twinkling Christmas lights near me in my state. So if you are a Maine resident or just visiting for the weekend, then bundle up (since it’s cold out obviously) and check out these Christmas light displays in Maine.
I updated this post this year to reflect some changes to dates.
Christmas Lights Near Me in Maine
I’m obsessed with L.L. bean this time of year. With multiple light displays, heated benches and a train display inside the store that kids will love, their Northern lights event is a must see during the holidays. Last year they added a skating rink and free skate rentals as well. Their Northern Lights display runs from November 18th to December 31st. So if you are in the area make sure to check L.L. Bean out!
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are bringing back their walk through light display! The entire gardens are decorated with 750,000 LED lights across 14 acres. It truly is magical. In the past couple of years, the display has been drive through only and to be honest, we have not gone. I am so excited that they are bringing back the walk through display because it is seriously so magical. Gardens Aglow can be checked out November 19th through December 31st. To learn more head to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.
Every year the Nubble Lighthouse is decorated in lights. While this lighthouse resides on an island, you are able to see the light display from across the water. Learn more about visiting HERE.
The Victoria Mansion in Portland, Maine decorates then entire mansion with lights, trees and garland. It is absolutely beautiful and a must stop when you are looking at Christmas lights around Portland. Check out more information HERE.
Kennebunkport offers up a Christmas Prelude every year for a couple weeks in December. To see the events head over to Christmas Prelude but if you miss these events there is always something to see and do while in Kennebunkport. In fact, Kennebunkport was voted the #2 Christmas town in American by HGTV.
