Garden of Lights at the Botanical Gardens


Get your Christmas lights fix at the Garden of Lights at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. You can drive your car through two miles of Holiday Lights arranged in various entertaining exhbits. My personal take? It's pretty, particularly on a dark night and I suppose its a little catalytic to the Christmas spirit. I think it's prettier than the Beach light show down on the boardwalk. I wouldn't call it exciting or knock your socks off, but if you're in a neighborhood that is rather humbug about Christmas decorating, then this could be the venue for you.

Cost Description: 
$15 per car. $7 on Military Mondays. I was debating whether to tag this as pricey, but we had 5 people in the car. So $3 per person for two miles of lights is kinda moderate.
Age Description: 
Kids up to about 9 will like this, probably. Any child older than that, well, you better bring a Gameboy.
