Some dazzling displays are easy to find and line the streets, not only making the town more festive but easier to navigate after sunset. Without neon signs or other city lights stealing the spotlight, the many light displays throughout the island are simply amazing. That being said, visitors want to make sure they manage to spot all of the main displays to soak up all of the island’s holiday magic. We’ve collected a list of all of the best light displays for the public to admire:

Lowcountry Celebration Park

Home to Hilton Head Island’s official town Christmas tree, this park with normally plenty to see and do is now exciting and oh-so-festive at night!
