A Branson Christmas has its perks. One of them is the famous Trail of Lights, which is a drive-animation display that will carry you into the very spirit of Christmas. Through an 18-year Heritage of Holiday Magic, the Trail of Lights has been attracting tourists from all over the world and has been bringing smiles to the faces of people who see it. The Trail winds its way through the streets of the historic 160-acre homestead, and will lead you down the famous “Trail that Nobody Know How Old” and put you into a holiday wonderland! It is a must see attraction during the Christmas season, which will dazzle both the young ones and the young at heart.

As you travel into the Trail of Lights, you will see different lands, each with their own theme. From fantasy to religious to patriotic, prepare to be amazed by the creativity of this attraction. Various three-dimensional characters, both life size and larger, have their own housing in which they are displayed. You can take a “peek” in on the fun happening inside each housing. Each scene in the housings has a festive holiday themed to it. Visitors are sure to find themselves having fun and singing along!

Once you see the Trail of Light, you will be amazed. From the name itself, it is what it named. The Trail also includes millions of multi-colored Christmas lights. These lights bring joy to people. Thus, every building on park is completely illuminated, and there are even hundreds of lighted displays as well as animated scenes.

This one-of-a-kind Christmas attraction is definitely worth the trip. After travelling through the Trail of Light for approximately 45 to 60 minutes, end it at the Inspiration Tower. You can ride the glass elevators up to 230 ft. for Santa’s eye view of the lights from above. This is definitely one of the Christmas events that you shouldn’t miss!
