Located off Pacific Coast Highway and Calle Mayor in Torrance California you will find one of the best all time Christmas tree light and decoration display ever seen. One word of warning, though, the closer to Christmas you get, the more crowded it becomes. Also, if you go on a weekend your crowd will be 10 x bigger than if... More

I have visited Candy Cane Lane twice . Last year had more lights than this year in my opinion. I was somewhat disappointed this year that there was not so much Christmas lighting like I remembered from last years visit. Overall a good site to see. It's nice to walk to see all the homes. Its a plus in my... More

We love to look for Christmas lights; it is one of our favorite activities to do. We are often in the Los Angeles area around the holidays and we enjoy taking the drive down Candy Cane Lane. it definitely puts us in the holiday spirit.

Our family loves Christmas and we love to go look at houses that decorate in abundance (we too decorate in abundance!) Our daughter had wanted to go to Candy Cane Lane in LA for years and asked for us to take her on her birthday (we live about 2.5 hours away), so we went in Dec 2013 and were somewhat... More

Our son drove us through this attraction during our recent visit, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. There is such variety and beauty in people's lighting, and it's heartwarming to see families out and having fun together.

All of the neighbor pitch in and make it speacial. the traffic is terrible park on next block and walk. The driver should not look as lots of people cross the street in the dark. be very careful if driving.

I remember the first time I visited Candy Cane Lane 15 years ago. 99% of the house were decorated with amazing and fancy Christmas lights. It has gone down since then. I took my family this year hoping that it would surprise me again, yet it did surprise me with great disappointment. I am no expert or anywhere near it,... More

I went Christmas Eve 2012.. it was great! A house even had Santa nd his elves to pictures with. Traffic was crazy! Me and my girl parked on Oxnard and winnetka nd just walked the neighborhood. It was cold, but I recommend walking because u can see more things. Not all the houses were decorated I'd say 60-70% were. I... More

Went last year 2011. Biggest disappointment. Don't understand the other reviews. Maybe it was the time I went. Couple days before Christmas. Perhaps the homeowners were protesting or something. There was traffic down the street, but no lights to mention. Seen much better places. Dont understand how they got the landmark sign. Perhaps living on past glories? I wasn't the... More

Worth the visit! I've been taking my kids here year after year for about ten years now. Although not as many houses are participating, it's still fun for the kids to see the lighted houses and extravagant Christmas decorations. My tips are to go during the weeknights and avoid weekends. Go about two weeks before Christmas to see most houses... More
