Cool Light Displays in the Metro DC Area

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties

ZooLightsThere are so many wonderful holiday activities in Bethesda and the surrounding area, including some great holiday light displays. Two of the nicer displays are ZooLights at The National Zoo in Washington, DC and Symphony of Lights at Symphony Woods in Columbia, MD.


ZooLights shows off many of the zoo’s most popular animals, built larger-than-life and constructed of LED lights. The LED lights are environmentally friendly and use about 90 percent less energy than traditional light bulbs. The event also offers hands-on activities, food, and other entertainment.


A new activity this year is an “Iceless” Skating Rink. Located at the Zoo’s picnic pavilion, this is among the best of the world’s eco-friendly synthetic ice skating surfaces. The “ice” is actually a special polymer that lets skate blades glide the same way they would on real ice. The price is pretty smooth, too--$5.00 for a 30-minute session.


ZooLights is open 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. nightly from December 16, 2011 to January 1, 2012 (except 12/24, 12/25 and 12/31). The event is free, but you will have to pay for parking: $9.00 for zoo members and $16.00 for non-members. See the National Zoo's website for more details.


For 18 years, Symphony of Lights has offered a wonderful holiday experience for those in Maryland and Virginia—and you don’t have to get out of your car!  In 20 to 30 minutes, you’ll drive past over 70 animated and stationary light creations that, like ZooLights, are larger-than-life.


The price for a car or van of up to 8 passengers is $20.00; vehicles seating 9 to 24 passengers pay $45.00; and larger busses that seat 25 or more will pay $125.00. You can find more information at their website.


There’s always something to do in the DC area, but the holidays offer some special ways to have a wonderful time.
