Where can you see the lights?

White lights drape the city’s unique Spanish Colonial architecture and glow from the sidewalks to the rooftops, over the Bridge of Lions, along historic buildings, public spaces, hotels, restaurants, and inns throughout approximately 20 blocks of the Nation’s Oldest City’s historic district.

The top two spots to visit for the best views and Nights of Lights selfies are:
1. The Plaza de la Constitución Get the perfect holiday selfie in front of the Christmas tree in the center of the plaza. There are also live music performances in the plaza on weekends and throughout the holidays.
2. The Bridgeof Lions Walk the bridge to gaze back at the sparkling reflection of the lights along the water.
