After the sun goes down in December, the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas is transformed into a winter wonderland. More than 125,000 sparkling lights illuminate the flora of this 37-acre urban oasis each evening.

100,000 sparkling lights illuminate several garden areas including the Lawn Garden, Tropical Rainforest, Waterfall Deck, Undersea Succulent Garden, Eucalyptus Grove, Seeds of Wonder (children’s area), and Bamboo Garden, containing the nation’s largest collection of bamboo.

With nightly entertainment, including local blues and jazz bands, as well as food from Red Oven Artisanal Pizza and Pasta and coffee and treats from the Feel Good Coffee Cart. Plus holiday crafts, spin art, visits with Santa (December 2 – 23), and (on selected evenings) horse-drawn wagon rides, snow for sledding, and holiday carolers.
