For many families in Maine, it is a tradition to spend one night around Christmas time driving around and looking at lights. Simple, gaudy, elegant, and downright tacky – you’re sure to see a little of everything and you’re to feel the holiday spirit.
The city of Portland is always decorated to impress with a beautiful Christmas tree in Monument Square and the downtown area covered in unique holiday lights. Freeport’s shopping district is also a great place to see the lights, especially the LL Bean Christmas tree. No matter where you are, if it’s near the holiday season make sure to drive down a side-road or two – you never know what you might find.
