SEATTLE, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, today released a list of the best neighborhoods to see holiday lights in 23 metropolitan areas, and the top five neighborhoods in the nation. These neighborhoods go all out with lights, inflatable characters, plastic statues, wreaths and other holiday decorations, often timed to music. The list is based on feedback from Redfin real estate agents, who have driven through the neighborhoods on their way to home tours and open houses.
For many families, it's a Christmas Eve tradition to grab some hot cocoa, turn on holiday music, and drive around neighborhoods to look at homes adorned with lights and decorations. While there are many parks, gardens, zoos and tree lightings this time of year, most require paid tickets. This list is to help people find the fun, old-fashioned family displays that aren't often advertised.
