Raise your hand if you're someone who has an actual "Christmas Fun List." If your hand is flailing about in the air right now, you need to bookmark this page! 

Last month, we were blown away by how many Idaho destinations ended up on the list of "winter" nominees for USA Today's "10 Best" awards. From "Best Snow Tubing Park" to "Best Ski Restaurant," Idaho put at least one nominee in every single category.


The news outlet runs a similar contest for Christmas events in categories like:

  • Best Theme Park Holiday Event
  • Best Botanical Garden Holiday Lights
  • Best Holiday Parade
  • Best Holiday Historic Home Tour
  • Best Public Holiday Lights Display
  • Best Zoo Lights
  • Best Holiday Market
  • Best Hotel for the Holidays

They run the contests annually and over the years, Idaho's been proud to put some nominees on the list. Last year, the Idaho Botanical Garden's "Winter Garden aGlow" was nominated for Best Botanical Garden Holiday Lights and the Holiday Light Show in Coeur d'Alene made the list of nominees for "Best Public Holiday Lights" displays. It finished outside the Top 10, but is nominated again in 2022!

Both of these incredible displays are on our list of"can't miss" Christmas lights displays in 2022!
