Contributed by Si Fisher

If you're looking for a festive way to get into the Christmas spirit, then look no further than our curated list of the best places to see EPIC Christmas lights on Whidbey Island! There are plenty of places to go see some truly spectacular Christmas lights on the island, and we've got all the details for you here. So grab your friends and family, and get ready to be dazzled!


First let's talk about the two most EPIC light displays on Whidbey Island

(One on the South end and one up North)

1. The Beck Family Drive-Through Christmas Lights Display


The Beck Family display is truly one of legend. We are excited to be welcomed back this holiday season.  The display is located on the South end of Whidbey at 6504 Robin Lane in Clinton.  They boast over 30,000 lights and even include a radio station you can tune into and enjoy some music with the show.  How cool is that?

Now through December 31st from 6 pm to 9 pm daily.  Thank you Beck Family!

2. The Hastie Lake Christmas House

2379 Hastie Lake Road, Oak Harbor, WA

On the North end of Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor is a fantastic place to tour if you want to see a variety of great neighborhoods with lights, but one display tends to be a local favorite.  That being The Hastie Lake Christmas House.

This is a one-family production, and they spend all year planning and around 10 days setting up the incredible display. Every installment offers something to admire, and they love hearing what it means to those who come by to see it.


Visitors can marvel at the lights from NOW until Christmas night, with a special Christmas Eve experience featuring Santa, the Grinch, music and snow machine (weather permitting). A walking trail is also available, giving guests an up-close view of the displays — just make sure to stay on the path and not step over, through or around any figures/lights due to electrical cords and guide wires.


A mailbox for Santa will also be present where you can drop off your Santa letters! If you leave a name and address, who knows… maybe he’ll write back.


If you visit the lights this year, the Hastie Lake family would love to hear your memories and see your photos! Share them either on their page or by using the hashtag:
