I LOVE Christmas! I mean LOVVEEEEEEE Christmas! We went to Descanso Gardens to see their holiday lights, although it wasn't quite Disneyland spectacular, it was an enchanting evening and a perfect night out with friends! 

General Admission is $28 or save $5 if you are already a member. Buy tickets here.

Parking was free and there were plenty of spots. Don't forget your coat though, it was pretty chilly for Los Angeles! 

There were little food stands and bars throughout so you could sit and have cocoa or wine or wine cocoa! There is also a restaurant called Maple but all reservations were booked up the week we were going, so plan ahead!

It was about a mile walk all the way around. It was a few more steps if you were circling around trees and jumping on lights! :)

The colors of the reflected lights added extra enchantment here. This was my favorite part!

Bright lights they made noise

Ok, sometimes the lights were too bright! But these did make sounds when you stepped on them!

These lights were even better!
