We all have our holiday traditions. When you think about all the best things about the holidays you probably think about time spent with family, cheesy and wonderful Hallmark movies, and that feeling of holding Starbucks holiday cups. And of course, you think about Christmas lights. Well, if you want to see the most magical displays of Christmas lights you need to see the Magic of Lights! And you don't even have to leave your car.
Now open, the Magic of Lights is a Christmas light tunnel 1.5 miles long that you and your family or friends can drive through. Look up and around as you are surrounded by more LED lights than even Clark Griswold ever dreamed about.
As you drive through the tunnel you will also see over 40 Christmas light displays of Christmas favorites like snowmen, giant candy canes, elves, and, of course, Santa himself. And new this year is a reindeer crossing display and the Snowflake Forest. It isn't just Rudolph's nose that's so bright! And be sure to check out the 200-foot long candy cane light display Candy Cane Lane.
Daytona International Speedway is hosting the Magic of Lights. For the second year in a row, you can hop in your car and drive underneath thousands of Christmas lights at Daytona Beach.
The best part is that if you buy a ticket, part of the money will be going towards supporting the Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center Foundation.
Tickets are just $20 per car.
The event runs until December 31st. Fridays through Sundays the Magic of Lights is open from 5:30 - 10:00 p.m. The rest of the weekdays it's open from 5:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Oh, you can take you doggo friend—you just have to make sure they stay in your car.
Tickets are available online here. Pro Tip: if you plan on going on a weekend, which can get busy, you can also buy a Dash Pass which is like a VIP ticket that lets you skip any lines.
Daytona International Speedway is located at 1801 W International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach. You can find the entrance off Midway Avenue.
This year, Magic of Lights is in seven cities. There are also events at raceways in Fontana, California; Jones Beach, New York; Northeast, Ohio; Holmdel, New Jersey; as well as several cities in Canada.
