Extreme Individual Homes and Neighborhood Christmas Lights in Monroe County
1. 127 Quesada Drive
This is a single home with lights synced with music. And not just Christmas music!
What makes this one different than other homes on our favorites list is that it’s not on a cul-de-sac and people tend to park their cars for 20+ minutes rather than keep driving by. I went on a Monday at 5:15 and there were easily 20 cars already lined up, and 30 more driving carefully and slowly past.
People also park on the side streets and walk down to see this home up close, along with another brightly lit home down the street.
You may find it easier to work your way into the neighborhood from Latta Rd. rather than English Rd. so you end up on the same side of the street as the 127 Quesada Dr. without needing to turn around.
It is a show unlike any other, and I’m excited to add it to the list for 2020.
Please keep in mind I have myself witnessed, and have had several reports of this home having technical difficulties. I would encourage you not to wait if the house is dark. I feel bad for Cierra, who commented below that she sat for three hours in front of a dark house with out-of-town guests. We are so incredibly thankful for all of our homeowners taking their time and money to share a joyful experience with Rochesterians, and acknowledge we are not at all entitled to their service, nor are they under any obligation to provide it.
2. Christmas Lights on Rahway Road
Many of the homes in the Rahway community (Rahway, Dawson, Winter Hazel) participate in the annual Christmas lights extravaganza. Some homes are lit to festive extremes, while others are elegant, monotone, or traditional.
Winter Hazel is a cul-de-sac so you can see all of the homes a second time as you drive back out toward Lyell Rd.
3. Christmas Lights on Colony Lane
This Henrietta cul-de-sac at the end of Colony Lane is decked with lights & music synced across multiple homes.
Join the Facebook group to stay informed of the festivities. For 2020 specifically, they will be drive-through only. No photos with characters will be taken, but Mr. and Mrs. Santa will be waving to cars from the circle.
They also collect non-perishable food items for the Rush Henrietta Area Food Terminal.
4. Christmas Lights on Stonebridge Lane
The entire cul-de-sac neighborhood on Stonebridge Lane gets decked out in elegant holiday bling.
5. Christmas Lights on Endicar Drive
This cul-de-sac neighborhood is lit! Multiple homes on Endicar Drive participate to bring the holiday cheer.
6. Christmas Lights on Middle Road
This home at 1361 Middle Road near the Rush-Henrietta town line is absolutely worth a slow-roll by. It’s a tough place to pull over and appreciate, but has to be seen nonetheless.
7. 16 Beauclaire Lane
This magnificent Polisseni home at 16 Beauclaire Lane is eccentric all year long, but comes to life during the holidays. The lawn sculptures and decorations are WOW-worthy!
While this home in particular is exceptional, the surrounding neighbors around the cul-de-sac and on the streets that wind along the hill behind Casa Larga also decorate which makes it an interesting drive-through.
Christmas Lights Outside Monroe County
There are 20+ houses on Buckskin Dr. that are synced to the same radio station.
Once you pull onto the street, turn off your headlights and drive slowly through the neighborhood enjoying this exceptionally fun and colorful drive.
Follow along on their Facebook page.
