2008 E Cambridge St

The 2000 block of East Cambridge Street, just east of the mall, lights up every year. Numerous homes in this neighborhood will be dressed up come Christmastime, but the main attraction is hard to miss (you'll know it when you see it). The home's Christmas display is highlighted by an animated light show that's paired with music on 105.5 FM.

It's a very popular spot, so be sure to pack some hot cocoa and snacks in preparation for a wait. If you plan on taking the drive to Springfield from Joplin, your Honda Odyssey's rear entertainment system should keep any antsy kid occupied. Click here for driving directions, and find times here.
