Griswold Light Displays in The 'Burgh

Pittsburgh Neighborhood Lights That Give Clark A Run For His Money

By Emily Papa, Macaroni KID Publisher December 22, 2023

Pittsburgh's neighborhoods are gearing up for the holiday season, and we all have our favorite neighborhoods that we stop at each year to oogle over their holiday lights displays. There are several well known areas to "stroll by" on a nice winters' eve, and then those hidden gems that are not so well known. Make some hot chocolate, grab your favorite snugly blanket, print a copy or two of our Griswold List Scavenger Hunt, and pack your kids in the car to embark on this fun and FREE family adventure through these Pittsburgh neighborhoods that will be sure to turn into your new favorite tradition. We've got streets worth driving down listed by neighborhood below, and you can use the Google Map below to scope out and navigate quickly to glowtastic Griswold houses near you! Click on the arrow in the top left corner of the Google map to search by neighborhoods.
