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’m obsessed with L.L. bean this time of year. They have lights everywhere with some really cute places to take photos. This year they also added a skating rink and free skate rentals as well. So if you are in the area make sure to check L.L. Bean out!
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
In years past they have had the entire garden decked out in lights that you could walk through. It was pretty magical and special. Now, due to COVID, the light display is drive through only. While I enjoyed walking through the gardens on a cold December night and exploring the lights more then the drive through set up, it is still magical. Disclaimer: the photo is from a couple of years ago when you could walk around the lit up 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.
