If you're in the Greenville Area, try the Roper Mountain Lights.
On Roper Mountain Road, just off Woodruff road. . . near the Old

Thanks!Speedway in lights at bristol motorspeedway is cool as a snowflake if you don't mind traveling a bit! A christmas village w/shopping,hot chocolate,and marshmallow roasting in the infield,the whole speedway grounds including the drag strip is decorated in lights,plus the ride takes you on a lap around the high banks of the speedway,and there is an ice skating rink on the property!! If that's to far a drive for, I've heard that Lowes motorspeedway in Charlotte has something similar,but I haven't been to it yet! Check it out on both track's website!

James Island County Park if you don't mind coming down here. Best bet is to do it on a Saturday and get in the car line around 4-430. If you wait for dark, you will be stuck in a VERY long line. It's $10 a car or 10 PW Greenbax. You drive through the park. There's an area that you can park your car, and ride a "train" through some of the lights, roast marshmallows, see Santa, etc. We go every year, and it runs until New Years.

It's probably not worth driving a long distance to, but Hartsville has a cool Christmas lights display.

mcadenville, nc decorates the entire town, including the old mill. its just past gastonia, exit 22 or 23 off of I-85. get there EARLY, long lines, and the lights go off at 9:30 m-f.

Hope Ferry Rd in Lexington. It's only four houses but it's amazing how much work these families put in.
Also you might have to google it. But in Pontiac there is a guy who lives on a small farm and he decorates a good bit of it, there is a hay ride and he has some lionel style trains and villiages set up in the barns, He only asks for donations and turns all the money over to cancer research I believe.
I know this is probably way to far and makes little sense for most of you but this thread relates to something the family did this Friday night. Every year Busch Gardens in Williamsburg does their 'Christmas Town'...the entire park is decorated and lit up like a...Christmas tree. Anyway, as unmanly as this sounds it was awesome. The kids absolutely loved it. There must be a 1,000 or more real trees spread through out the woods alone and another 1,000 throughout the park...at least. Everything you can think of has lights on it and there must be...literally...a million plus lights...if not more...going off. I could go on and on from a lights display standpoint but will spare you all the details. It was...without a doubt...the best Christmas lights display I have ever seen. Each country had a different color scheme and 'Germany' had the entire square wired to flash with the Christmas music. Both Germany and France even had fake snow coming out of the sky which added to the visual. Maybe the coolest visual was the 'air tram' thing which was on a continuous loop so you entered at England, went through all four stations and ended back in England but to see that many lights throughout the park from the air with the kids was again pretty cool...if Christmas lights can be 'cool'.
