Louisville Mega Cavern has been doing Lights Under Louisville for quite sometime now, and it seems to get bigger and more spectacular every year. Plus, who doesn't like driving around in a cavern to check out some lights? New this year is the Christmas Express, a daytime drive through on an open top trailer which ends with milk and cookies, yum.
Waverly Hills Sanatorium may be known for haunts and Halloween, but it puts on an epic Laser Light Show around the holidays.

And you never leave the warmth of your car!" Ummmm, yes please.
