Get lit: Central Indiana light displays


“Griswold” House

Anyone growing up in Greenwood knows this is the first place to go for a spectacular lights display. Every year, this house gets decked out. Almost every inch of the yard is covered in Christmas lights. It’s easy to compare the display to the classic holiday movie, “Christmas Vacation.” 

Intersection of Smith Valley and Runyon Road, Greenwood.


Greenwood Village

Even though this is a retirement community, it’s easy to spot this neighborhood’s giant tree light display from miles away. The multiple light displays are pretty to look at while driving down the tree-lined road leading to the largest tree lights.

Greenwood Park Mall

While finishing — or starting — holiday shopping, walk by the newer side of the mall to see their mini version of the Circle of Lights tree display while classic Christmas songs play in the background over the intercom. The lights are sandwiched between BJ’s Restaurant Brewery and the Cheesecake Factory.

Downtown Franklin Courthouse

How could we not mention the cutest area within walking distance of campus? Every year, the city of Franklin hosts its holiday lighting on the first weekend in December. Throughout the day, there are other Christmas-themed events around town leading up to the lighting of the courthouse, including a Christmas movie at the Artcraft Theatre.

70 E. Monroe St., Franklin.
