Tis' the season to be merry and bright, and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than admiring the twinkling lights around town? Lucky for you, Northwest Arkansas is packed with dazzling displays so you can make an entire evening out of driving around town with cocoas, cozy blankets, and the company of family and good friends.
To make your night on the town extra easy, we've compiled a list of our personal favorite spots with directions to each. Be sure to bookmark this page for reference. Ready to roll?
SQUARE TO SQUARE
Let's start with some of the bigger displays. Our region is blessed with such vibrant downtown areas that are dripping with millions of glorious lights. Be sure to take in the sights, sounds, and a little shopping as you drive from square to square.
Not only is the Bentonville square simply glowing, but so is the North Forest Lights exhibit. Located at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, this immersive nighttime walk through the woods features dynamic, nature-inspired lighting elements, and soundscapes. It's not necessarily a holiday light show, which means the themes and colors go beyond traditional red and green. It also means the experience lasts beyond Christmas. You can enjoy it until January 2nd. This year is the final showing of this exhibit, and it does require tickets, so be sure to plan ahead and head over before it's gone!
