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.
These are our favorites close to home right here in Broomfield.
|Animated||5061 Yates Circle, Broomfield||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!).||FM radio and speakers|
|Animated||4872 W 123rd Place, Broomfield||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.||FM radio|
|Animated||4810 W 127th Place, Broomfield||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.||FM radio and speakers|
|Animated||4901 Yates Circle, Broomfield||Just down the street from our house. 2 songs on repeat with 16 channels of traditional Christmas lights sequenced to the music.||FM radio|
|Neighborhood||Northridge (Dover Court near 12th street and Sheridan)||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.||n/a|
|Static||1188 Clubhouse Drive, Broomfield||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.||n/a|
And these are our favorites around the rest of the Denver Metro area.
|Animated||3402 Trenton St., Denver||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.||FM radio|
|Static||8954 West 78th Circle, Arvada||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.||n/a|
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). We do not necessarily recommend any of these houses as being worth visiting but we are hoping they will improve over the years and we will do our best to keep an eye on them for possible inclusion in our lists above.
