Known by many as South Florida’s best-kept holiday secret, the Enchanted Place has been shining bright every holiday season since 1988. It’s a community effort spearheaded by neighbors who every year decorate their street in North Miami with thousands twinkling lights. Everyone is welcome to drive by and pose for photos among illuminated Santas, Christmas trees, snowmen and Menorahs. 1800 NE 137th Ter, North Miami
The calendar is filling up with drive-thru Christmas events in Miami and all the stores are a-jingle with Christmas songs. But the festive season isn’t complete without gawking at over-the-top decorations and Christmas lights. Miami malls and suburbs are usually the best places to see dazzling holiday displays, but 2020 has introduced an entirely new way to experience the holiday magic: the drive-thru. Gone is the season of driving aimlessly in pursuit of intermittent icicle lights and the occasional blow-up Santa in South Beach. This year, get behind the wheel with purpose and head for these spots guaranteed to sparkle bright this Christmas. While you’ll pay admission for some displays, light peeping in some of the more extravagant enclaves can be one of the best things to do in Miami over the holidays.
