It’s hard to believe, but the holidays are only a few weeks away. Residents in the Kingston area are celebrating with wonderfully decorated homes, yards, and gardens.

From holiday lights and evergreen boughs to inflatable Santas and snowmen galore, residents in and around the Kingston area are truly celebrating the season — with some Christmas Vacation inspired displays that you may need sunglasses to look at.

With memories of annual car rides to see decorations from whimsical to wild in mind, Kingstonist has compiled a list of where to go once everyone has bundled up and filled the car. Keep in mind, this list in is no way exhaustive and will be added to as readers submit their own suggestions over the coming days and weeks.
