If you want to slow down your holiday rush, one of the best places to do it in New Jersey during December is Historic Smithville, New Jersey. Smithville is located on Route 9 in Galloway Township, Atlantic County between Port Republica and Absecon.
Historic Smithville is not only a great place to catch a great light show, it’s also a great place to get some of your holiday shopping done. Located on Lake Meone at the Historic Smithville and Village Greene, the Holiday Light Show will not disappoint as you gaze out into the lake at 120 Christmas trees decorated with 50,000 lights.
The Smithville Holiday Light Show runs from November 25th through Thursday, January 6th from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
“The moment darkness falls, an orchestrated show of lights and music is played out across the lake. The lights seem to dance and chase each other to the music all the while reflecting off the water’s surface. This show can be seen from either side of the village as well as the bridge,” Historic Smithville describes the event.
The shops at Smithville are open 7 days a week during this time from 10 am to 7 pm during the week and close at 9 pm on Friday and Saturday.
Smithville is an entire village of small shops and boutiques. You can find anything from jewelry to clothing to bakeries and restaurants within the village. There’s even a barbershop on site.
