Holiday Lights at the Beach - 
Cruise and Be-dazzled!

McDonald's Holiday Lights at the Beach - Look below for discounts and a $3 off coupon, plus military discounts.

Santa...in the sand?

Rolling out Nov. 18 to Jan. 1, this event is a truly magical family fun attraction. Located at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, it's the perfect way to start the holiday season. Join 30,000 people who flock annually to this festive and creative light display on the oceanfront.

Don't worry--that's 30,000 over the entire holiday season--you won't have to battle them all at once! Still, go with what the locals know: Saturday nights have the biggest crowds, so stick with Friday and Sunday nights.


Here's something else the locals know: It's one of the holiday highlights of the year. In fact, it's been named one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 November Events” the last few years. Some of the top sights at this extravaganza include a "Twelve Days of Christmas" light exhibit, a three-story Christmas tree of lights, and a "surfin' Santa."

This year's show-- sponsored by Liberty Tax Service-- is your once a year chance to actually "cruise" the boardwalk. (Note: There is an entrance fee for cars, but you can cram as many people into your car as your like!)
