2020 Christmas Lights Guide for Winchester and Frederick County

We have seen a great deal of questions about where you can see Christmas lights this year in the Winchester and Frederick County area, so we decided to get out there and put together a list for you. We have used local knowledge, some message boards and some good old driving around to generate this resource of holiday decorations. If we missed a good one, let us know!

Here’s a map of the locations with details to help you plan out your excursion. Please use caution when enjoying these lights and be mindful of traffic patterns and traffic speeds.
