Lakeshore Drive Christmas Lights
Grosse Pointe, Michigan
Dusk or later
This one is a bit off the radar, but we think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the opulent light displays The Pointes have to offer, most remarkable are nearby the Edsel and Eleanor Ford house. A slow drive through the neighborhoods is perfect for sleepy tots, and families with new babies hoping to experience the magic of the holiday season while keeping their little ones warm. Grab your coco, and turn on the holiday tunes!
