If you’re looking for something festive to do in the Miami area, then check out Pinecrest Gardens Nights of Lights.
Thousands of lights illuminate Pinecrest Gardens, but aside from the lights there’s also holiday concerts, yummy treats and photos with Santa.
It’s quite magical once you walk through the gardens and there are a lot of great spots for all your holiday photos!
Pinecrest Gardens Nights of Lights
Pinecrest Gardens is such a beautiful place to visit during the day. The Gardens feature over 1,000 varieties of rare and exotic tropical plants and palm trees. During the day you can pack a picnic, enjoy a guided tour, take a workshop or visit the art gallery.
However, during the holiday season, Pinecrest Gardens transforms into a winter wonderland with thousands of lights illuminating the gardens.
The cost of admission to the Nights of Lights is $20 for adults and $15 for kids (2 to 17 years old). You can purchase your ticket online.
Be sure to purchase a ticket when there’s a holiday concert performance as these are included with the admission cost. However, the holiday concerts only occur on select nights.
As mentioned, the holiday concerts occur on select nights. However, I did get to see one on the night that I went, which was a performance by MC Dance at the Bayan Bowl.
The event schedule can be found on the Pinecrest Gardens website and they have a great selection up until December 22nd.
Food and Drinks
There are plenty of vendors at the Pinecrest Gardens during the Nights of Lights. There’s hotdogs, cookies, popcorn and all sort of goodies. So if you haven’t had a bite to eat, you’ll get a chance to do so all while admiring the beauty of the lights.
Santa Claus Appearance
If you’re looking for Santa, he’s definitely at Pinecrest Gardens. Not only will the kids be able to see Santa and get their photo taken with Santa, but Mrs. Claus also makes an appearance for story time!
It’s hard to describe how absolutely wonderful the Nights of Lights is. This winter wonderland not only has sparkling holiday lights around the trees, but the lights are also in the form of animals, gift boxes and more.
There’s also a holiday-themed maze in the gardens, which is bound to get you lost. I definitely got lost and couldn’t find my way out, but adored every second of it.
- Parking is completely free and there’s plenty of parking.
- Nights of Lights will be available until January 2, 2022.
- They do have an art gallery, when I went I actually got to see a cool exhibit of trains.
The Pinecrest Gardens Nights of Lights was marvelous. Upon entering the Gardens, I was captivated by all the lights and couldn’t wait to see the rest. This is a great way to celebrate the holidays and enjoy them with a loved one.
