Are you excited for Christmas like we are? Nothing puts you in the holiday mood in the run-up to the big day like going to view Christmas lights. So let's take a look at Sacramento's best neighborhoods for you to see a beautiful light show:

1) East Sacramento/Fabulous 40s

The Fabulous 40s are in East Sacramento, and the name loosely refers to the area bordered by 40th and 48th Streets west and east, and J Street and Folsom Boulevard north and south. If you're looking to for an old-fashioned light show this Christmas, the Fabulous 40s are for you: the neighborhood's stately residences boast classic architecture and a vintage holiday feel. The horse-drawn carriage rides are a treat.

2) Land Park/Curtis Park

Land Park and Curtis Park, located just south of Broadway, present another fantastic opportunity for a Christmas light tour through Sacramento. Like the Fabulous 40s, the area is a great example of old-style Sacramento architecture, characterized by magnificent homes all decked out with sparkling lights and trees for Yuletide. So make your way to anywhere between Broadway and Vallejo and East Curtis Drive and West Curtis Drive, and you'll be sure to enjoy a beautiful holiday ride through one of Sacramento's most esteemed neighborhoods.

3) River Park

River Park is another lovely spot to enjoy the Christmas season in Sacramento. Located right next to Sac State, the neighborhood close to East Sac and is accessible via Carlson Drive off of H Street. Carlson and Sandburg are River Park's two main streets, where you'll find plenty of festive light displays in this quiet, charming section of Sacramento. Along with a cup of hot cocoa, River Park's decorations are just what you need to get your family into the Christmas spirit on a chilly December evening.

4) Downtown/Old Sacramento

Old Sacramento, the place where Sacramento history originated with the Gold Rush days, is the proud site of the City of Sacramento's official Christmas tree. Located at K and Front St. and towering at 58 ft. tall, the colorfully decorated and dazzlingly lighted tree is truly a sight to see. You can watch Macy's Theatre of Lights at 6:15 and 7:45 PM every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with special showings at 6:15 PM on Christmas Eve and 8:30 PM on New Year's Eve. Check here for more details.
