Coming to Shore Acres was the best place our family visited during the Christmas holidays. It is by far the best display of Christmas spirit we encountered this past December. E plan to make this an annual trip.

Although we visited during the festive season, we saved the lights for another year. There is just so much to see and enjoy in the daylight, and for a $5 parking fee, this was amazing value.

This park is right off the ocean, and has a great grounds to view roses and rhododendrons, and other great trees and plants that grow in the area. Don't miss the Monkey Tree! Go down the road and watch the various seals and sea lions.

OH my, the Christmas lights were gorgeous!! Lots of moving displays, create and easy to view. This display was a community effort, many businesses and service clubs as well as individuals contributed to the effort. Approximately 450,000 lights!!!

We were just there! During the Holiday lights it is $5 cash unless you are staying in a State Park or have an annual park pass then it is free. Just show your paperwork or pass at the entrance.
