With Christmas just one month away the season of lights is officially underway.

While neighborhoods and parks across the U.S. have already begun rolling out stellar holiday light displays, we've narrowed the list down to five must-see attractions for 2016. 

Miracle on 34th Street

Where: Baltimore, Maryland

For seven decades 34th Street in Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood has been wowing holiday visitors with one of the most impressive light displays around. This year, the lights come on Nov. 26 and can be seen each night through the end of the year.

Candy Cane Lane

Where: Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles' Woodland Hills neighborhood is where travelers will find the iconic Candy Cane Lane this holiday season. A tradition since 1952, this eye-catching Christmas light display is the product of a small group of homeowners along an eight square-block area at Lubao & Oxnard Streets.

Holiday Light Fantasia

Where: Hartford, Connecticut

Open Thanksgiving through New Year's, Hartford, Connecticut's Holiday Light Fantasia is easily one of New England's top Christmas light displays. Visitors can stay warm inside their car as they drive through Hartford's Goodwin Park and experience a collection of more than one million lights.

Waikele Neighborhood Lights

Where: Waipahu, Hawaii 

Hawaii's Waikele neighborhood pulls out all the stops this time of year, rolling out lights and music to create one of the nation's most stunning displays. More than a dozen houses participate and synchronize their lights to holiday classics and favorites including "Let It Go."

Christmas on Main Street

Where: Branson, Missouri

Missouri's Silver Dollar City theme park is no stranger to Christmas lights. This year's Christmas on Main Street will feature a five-story special effects Christmas tree boasting more than 350,000 lights. There'll also be a parade and other events through the holidays.
