2023 Twin County Christmas Lights Viewing Guide


As Christmas lights illuminate yards and streets, the magic of the season fills the air. The Twin Counties have several great spots for viewing Christmas lights this season.

City streets, outdoor spaces, and private residences offer great opportunities for you and your family to embrace the Christmas season. Grab your ugly Christmas sweaters, put on your favorite holiday playlist, and enjoy some great Christmas lights.

Downtown Nashville offers beautiful lighting along its streets with a wonderful nativity as you make your way downtown.

Main Street in Rocky Mount features illuminated trees and wreaths alongside the beautiful historic architecture of many of downtown’s buildings. While downtown, swing by the Helen P Gay Historic Train Station to see the gorgeous tree out front.

City Lake Park offers its beautiful lights each year and is one of the most elegant and serene spots for viewing Christmas lights.

The Rocky Mount Mills have decorations around campus with lights, trees, and wreaths. You can also view the decorated tower this time of year.

Spring Hope’s Chamber of Commerce and Pridgensfarmhouse kicked off the season with Christmas in Spring Hope last weekend. The decorations from the event can still be seen at 112 W Railroad St, Spring Hope.

Many of the homes along Walnut St. in Spring Hope are also worth driving around to see this time of year.

It wouldn’t be Christmas in the Twin Counties without checking out the beautifully decorated Tarboro Town Common along with the decorations downtown. Tonight will also offer the opportunity for carriage rides, carols, and more from 6 to 8 p.m. It is a great chance to get into the holiday spirit and to get some shopping done.  

A number of the homes lining the Town Common are also beautifully decorated for the season.

While many private residences are decorated for Christmas, there are a few to highlight.

The Vitale Christmas Light Show is at 7952 Bridgeview Rd in Rocky Mount and collects donations for charity. You can check it out 6–11 each night, weather permitting. You can walk through the light show or enjoy it from your car. Visitors can also enjoy free popcorn and hot chocolate between 6 and 8 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 15 and next Friday, Dec. 22.

You’ll also want to check out the “Christmas Countdown House” on Reges Store Rd in Nashville across from Faith Cornerstone Apostolic Church. Not only does this house host tons of lights it also counts down the days until Christmas.

If you’ve seen any Christmas lights or decorations let us know on social media so we can share the word with our Twin County neighbors.
