Celebrate the Holidays at Garden of Lights at Brookside Gardens
Brookside Garden’s Garden of Lights is a nature lover’s winter wonderland. Each year, the beautiful gardens transform with one million twinkling lights to highlight the current structures and make new art forms. Billowing flowers, colorful animals, and other wonders of nature are created with expert precision, along with enhancement to the already-breathtaking trees, fountains, and wintery scenes. After a brisk walk through the outdoor gardens, be sure to visit the Visitor’s Center to grab a hot drink, and then the Conservatory to see the model train chugging through a seasonal landscape. You can even grab a few last-minute presents at the gift shop.
The Garden of Lights is in its 22nd year of bringing the holidays to life, and is a tradition that your family will look forward to seeing year after year. Visit Brookside Gardens in nearby Wheaton, Maryland, just a few miles north on the MD-97. Admissions begin at 5:30 p.m. nightly to take advantage of the dusky evening hours, and continue until 9 p.m. (select days until 10 p.m.)
