Clark W. Griswold Lives in Johns Creek

Taking your kids to see Christmas lights is dangerous. Why? Ever since riding down Gladewood Drive, my kids have been hounding me for lights. I’m not talking about the silly little strand or two that we have, they have high expectations after seeing these creative displays. So go at your own risk! I have no desire to be Clark W Griswold, but I admire his work.

And before I get into a few picks, I suggest you check the local mom bloggers. They are far more connected as to where the cool lights can be found. I suggest Atlanta with Kid and Amy’s Christmas light list. I also like Jenni Hilton over at Forsyth County for Families.

So where do I go for Christmas lights? Gladewood Drive in the Hillbrooke neighborhood of Johns Creek. There are an above average number of homes in this neighborhood with lights. But this one long cul-de-sac is amazing. We’re not talking about one single house with lights but dozens of homes. When taken together, it is a pretty cool sight to see. We go each year, although I was a little disappointed this time. As of about a week ago they were still building out. Hopefully by now they’ve finished their work. But it’s worth the drive.

If you’re in the area, I’d also suggest swinging by Emory Johns Creek Hospital. The drive along Hospital Parkway is kinda cute. I wouldn’t go out of your way, but it’s worth a look if you’re in the neighborhood.

    Assuming this is still going on for 2012?
