Balboa Island has some great Christmas light displays. If you are looking for a place to visit and look at Christmas lights in Southern California, then Balboa must be in your list.
We went to walk around the other night and spotted a very intricate electric train display. The house is on Opal avenue, the owner said he puts it out every yera.
The display is amazing! The owner said it takes him about 2 weeks or so to put this together, and it usually comes down right after Christmas, so go before it gets taken down.
