State-wide Display Map

Recommended Posts

I had family up from VA Beach to see my lights this weekend, and they commented that they really had no idea where to find out about lights in the Hampton Roads area. I knew of a couple of sources for lights, and a few of my favorite displays, so I was able to point them in the right direction. 

But it made me think... Richmond has a pretty comprehensive list run by the RTD. Hampton Roads has a few disjointed lists (there's one pretty comprehensive one - perhaps too comprehensive - for Southside, but it doesn't cover the Peninsula at all). I've seen a couple of NOVA lists. I've never really light toured in the western part of the state, but I imagine there's stuff out there.

I'm thinking I might play with creating a semi-curated list of destination-level displays across the state. Probably use Google MyMaps or something like that. Anyone want to help/contribute known trusted lists?

Tackychristmaslights.com or christmaslightfinder.com?

They don't stay up to date. So many dark displays listed.

Sam has a pretty comprehensive list.


It's Google Maps used.  



Yea that's the best Hampton Roads one I've found, but doesn't cover the Peninsula.

Yea I started a MyMaps last year as a project of curiosity to explore the capabilities... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LxoMoQiq2egR8OhPMEOhZ7L66bc&usp=sharing (And to a much more expanded extent, I compiled my sports stadium history onto a map - working on getting to all the MLB stadiums! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ujffdK961o3s3gZpnRAnE5PFm4U&usp=sharing)

It's a good tool.... Just comes down to curating the list & keeping it up to date. (Like the Sam Sansalone list really doesn't seem to discriminate much - if it has a minion, it makes the list. I don't know what the minimum lights should be, but RTD makes theirs 50k I think.)
