Palo Alto puts on a light show

Take a stroll down Christmas Tree Lane

Toy soldiers and snowmen, wreaths and reindeer, Santa and his sleigh: Every night through the end of December, residents of Palo Alto's Christmas Tree Lane brighten the street with some of the Peninsula's best holiday decorations. The tradition that began in 1940 is still going strong. Just plug 1705 Fulton St. into your GPS and head out between 5 and 11 p.m. to catch the fun. Parking on adjacent streets and strolling the lane is the recommended viewing method -- and watch out for wandering children mesmerized by the magical displays.
