Lights around the Neighborhood

As lovers of Christmas lights, we spent a lot of time driving around various areas trying to find the best automated displays, static displays, and overall festive neighborhoods. The following is the best of what we have found. We will aim to keep this page up-to-date over the years to be an accurate collection of the best Christmas lights in the Denver area.

Broomfield

These are our favorites close to home right here in Broomfield.

5061 Yates Circle, Broomfield (Animated)

This is our house! High energy rocking Christmas music with a ~10 minute sequenced light show. 2000+ individually controllable LED pixels on the house and in the yard elements (including an army of snowmen!).
Audio: FM radio and speakers

4872 W 123rd Place, Broomfield (Animated)

One neighborhood south of our house. 15 or so songs on repeat with 100+ channels of traditional white Christmas lights sequenced to the music. Also features singing Christmas trees.
Audio: FM radio

4810 W 127th Place, Broomfield (Animated)

Just east of our house on the other side of Midway. 10 or so songs on repeat with 64 channels of traditional white and colored Christmas lights sequenced to the music. There is also a button box so visitors can select which song they want to see/hear.
Audio: FM radio and speakers

Shadow Canyon Trail and Rabbit Mountain Road (Neighborhood)

1 mile north of our house in the Red Leaf neighborhood. A bunch of houses all together with nice decorations and lots of lights. There is something magical when everyone in an area participates in Christmas lights and fills the street with holiday cheer in every direction.

Northridge (Dover Court near 12th street and Sheridan) (Neighborhood)

1/2 mile from our house. No house on its own is a must-see but everyone in the neighborhood puts up a lot of lights and the total effect is very nice. The cul-de-sac on Dover Court is the best part but the entire neighborhood is worth a drive, particularly on a snowy evening.
2020 UPDATE: this neighborhood seems to have lost some of its charm and participation. We will keep an eye out over the next few weeks to see what happens.

1188 Clubhouse Drive, Broomfield (Static)

Located near the Eagle Trace golf course, this house is well known to many in Broomfield. They light up their house and trees with a ridiculous amount of lights and the lawn is filled with all kinds of interesting things. Kids, especially, will love seeing this house.

Denver Metro

And these are our favorites around the rest of the Denver Metro area.

3402 Trenton St., Denver (Animated)

Our favorite other house in the Denver area! Pixel lighting all over the house plus 2 megatrees, leaping light arches, singing Christmas trees, and a pixel screen. They even have a parking lot directly across the street, which makes an excellent place to park and watch the 30 minutes of songs. Well worth the drive from anywhere in the Denver area.

8954 West 78th Circle, Arvada (Static)

Literally every possible inch of this house is covered with LED snowflakes and is a sight to behold. It is extraordinarily bright and worth a stop if you are nearby.

11407 W 103rd Ave, Westminster (Animated)

This house has a few pixel megatrees, which are often used to show singing faces and they seem to add new lighting elements every year. Kids will probably enjoy this house a lot. (https://www.facebook.com/westylightshow/)

Pixel Lighting List

The following is a list of all houses in the Denver Metro area we have encountered that use some form of RGB pixel lighting (as opposed to just controlling traditional light strings). If you know of others, please let us know on the Contact Us page so we can check them out and add them!
