If you are a college student attending Florida State University and you are looking for some great places to take your family members to look at holiday lights, you are in luck! There are numerous places to look for Christmas light displays that will make your holiday even brighter and merrier.
Christmas lights are great to see away from home but you can even attempt to set up your own if you have an apartment with a patio or balcony. Some of the best Christmas lights for apartment living are surprisingly affordable, but if you would prefer to skip the work, going out and seeing public light displays is an easier option.
In this article, I will explain how to find some of the best Christmas light displays within driving distance of FSU apartments.

On the Tallahassee.com website, they offer a database of submissions from people all over Tallahassee who want people to come to drive by and see their Christmas lights. The best thing about this kind of activity is it is free, people from the Tallahassee community decide to make the post for you to come to see their lights, and as long as you have gas in your tank and a few people to bring along, everyone can enjoy a hassle-free Christmas lights experience that doesn't involve the stress of finding parking.
Also, there is no requirement to leave your apartment near FSU and drive to these neighborhoods to see these lights. The people who post within the database upload pictures so people know what to expect when arriving or can view the light displays virtually too.
If you live in an apartment with roommate-matching, you can also include your roommates on the drive to find great Christmas lights with your family!
Christmas Lights and Other Winter Events at Dorothy B. Oven Park
This park is one of the best places to visit during the Fall season in Tallahassee. Although it's about a 15–20-minute drive away from most FSU apartments, this park has plenty of trails and activities to experience even during Christmas time making it well worth the trip.
During Christmas time specifically, the park is adorned with hundreds of lights, making it a great place to appreciate both the beautiful outdoors and the impressive Christmas display.
This park is right in the heart of Tallahassee and is frequented by many students who live in FSU apartments. Cascades Park is another huge place that is covered in twinkling Christmas lights during the days leading up to Christmas Day. Not only is this park pet-friendly, but it also offers hot cocoa to people walking around and free entertainment from musicians playing classic Christmas songs with their instruments on select days when they host a Holiday Christmas Stroll.
These events change every year, so keeping track of annual Tallahassee events and news is the best way to get the most accurate information possible.
