For a new holiday lights experience head to the LA Zoo for Zoo Lights. Stroll though areas of the Zoo that are transformed into a wonderland populated by glowing light animals. Santa and real reindeer too!
Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena (Santa Rosa Avenue, between Woodbury Avenue and Altadena Drive) is the oldest large-scale Christmas lighting spectacle in the United States and just minutes from La Canada.
