Awesome Christmas Light Displays in the Greater Jacksonville Area


10580 Crystal Springs Road, Jacksonville  - Off of Chaffee Rd. Near I-10.
This is probably the biggest single light show in the Northeast Florida area.  Winner of ABC's "Great Christmas Light Fight" in 2014!  Over 90,000 lights on thousands of channels.  M.C.ed by a giant robotic snowman.  I have personally visited this display and it is awesome.  There is a lot of traffic.  For best viewing, park in the empty lot just west of the display and walk down the sidewalk and watch for a while!

6091 Chestnut Gelding Lane, Jacksonville.  - Off of Normandy Blvd. past Yellow Water Rd.
I have not yet personally visited this show, but it's on my bucket list for this year!  A 23 ft Mega-Tree and tens of thousands of lights.

7870 Dwyer Drive, Jacksonville.  - Off 118th St., near 103rd.
Another on my bucket list.  Over 30 inflatables and more than 20,000 lights.

4738 Sussex Avenue, Jacksonville.  - Near Roosevelt Blvd. & Timequana.
Also on my bucket list.  Over 18,000 lights.

East Arlington:

Blackhawk Bluff Subdivision on Girvin Road.
I have personally visited this display, and can't wait to go again!  Despite the absolutely horrible traffic, this is a must see!  Nearly every house in these 2 neighborhoods is decorated.  It's an older neighborhood with giant old oak trees many of them decorated with giant light up stars and ornaments.  Many residents pass out candy canes, hot chocolate, and cookies.

12055 Evans Bluff Court, Jacksonville.  - Near Beach & Kernan.
About 20,000 LED lights, lots of hanging stars, snowflakes, lighted balls and meteor lights hanging across the street. Another on my list for this year.  The pictures look great!

West Arlington:

4568 Royal Port Drive, Jacksonville.  - N. end of University, past J.U.
Over 16,000 lights set to music!  A 30 minute show featuring 11 songs!  I have personally visited this show, and while not the biggest and the brightest, it is still quite good and I recommend it!

North Mandarin:

3710 Beauclerc Road, Jacksonville.

Dancing Lights
4826 Rathbone Drive, - Off Craven Road in between Baymeadows and Sunbeam.

South Mandarin:

I have driven by this one several times during the daytime and it is huge!  It appears to be a drive-thru around a large circular drive.  Can't wait to see it at night! Sun-Thurs 6:30-9:30 PM.  Fri-Sun 6:00 PM - Midnight. Tune your radio to 95.5 FM

Arbor Glade Subdivision
Another great neighborhood you can drive through and see lots of houses with lights and decorations.  Just happened to discover this one by accident the other night!  Roads branch off in multiple directions so be sure to expolore.  Tune your radio to 95.5 FM

Orange Park, Middleburg, and Fleming Island: (Clay County)

Candi's Lighted D'Lites

Joshua's Lights
1877 Penzance Parkway and others, Middleburg - Blanding turn L on Penzance Pkwy just past Lowes, follow it around in a circle.
10+ houses participating, A Small neighborhood near my own display.  I visited last year.  Great!  Tune your radio to 98.7 FM.

Conklin's Mack 5 light show
4635 Petunia Avenue,  - Take Blanding thru M’burg past 218 to Peppergrass St. (1st right after 218, .7 mi., Go 1.2 mi to Calendula Cir, turn Left, .3 mi to Petunia on R, house on L. at corner.
This one is a bit tricky to find. This light show is connected to Light O Rama so you get the beauty of the lights along with the music and dancing. They are on the whimsical side so lots of fun for the children. They have around 50,000 lights give or take. They have a 20ft mega tree, blow mold, deer, snowman and much much more.  I visited this show last year.  It's out in the boonies.  It's a nice display, but I don't think it's worth the drive unless you are already nearby.

1689 Long Horn Road, Middleburg.  - Take Blanding thru M’burg to 218 West. Approx 7 miles to Long Horn Rd, turn right. 1/3 mile on right.
Approximately 40,000 lights dancing to music. I also visited this one last year, and again, it's out in the boonies.  Another nice display, but I'm not sure this one is worth a long drive either, but definately recommended if you live nearby.

1618 Majestic View Lane,  - Fleming Island. Turn at Town Center Blvd, go ½ mi to Cypress Glenn Drive, turn left, right on Majestic Lane, Left on Poplar Ridge. At end of Poplar Ridge on Majestic.
Sync'ed musical light show (no other details but pic looks ok)  We got lost trying to find this one last year.
