Descanso Gardens' annual holiday fantasy lights creation is known as Enchanted Forest of Light and it really does seem as if you've entered an enchanted wonderland. Normally an internationally renowned garden located to the north of downtown L.A., the gardens are known for their incredible botanical collections and spectacular seasonal horticultural displays. With 160 acres to play with, the gardens' ingenious designers always create beautiful spaces, and then outdo themselves every year with a spectacular and slightly surreal light experience that extends for one mile. There are plenty of fantastical exhibits including the newest, a complete town made of stained-glass sculptures by Tom Fruin. The forest is on display from November 21, 2021, to January 9, 2022, but closed on a select number of nights, so check their website. Tickets are $32 (and up) for non-garden members, have a timed entry and must be purchased in advance.
- Things to Do in December: "Be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time for a timed entrance into the gardens."
- Best for Things to Do in December Because: This is a magical way to see a totally different kind of Christmas light display; and the lights here are interactive, too.
