McHenry Christmas Lights

There is still time to add to or revisit your existing Christmas traditions before the big day arrives!  Gather the family and head out to McHenry’s downtown area.  The McHenry Chamber has done a wonderful job decorating the downtown area, Veterans Memorial Park on Pearl Street, and Whispering Oaks Park on Route 120.  This is an old tradition that excites the youngest to the oldest family members.  Be sure to bring Grandma and Grandpa along to enjoy the wonderful display of lights.

While you are out and about, make sure to check out all the lights and displays of home decorations in many of McHenry county’s favorite communities.   Go ahead and start in Gerstad Builders Liberty Trails! This McHenry County new homes community is located on Lincoln Road.  Follow Lincoln Road west to Veterans Memorial Park and then on to Whispering Oaks Park.  Be sure to play a game with the children that the one that spots the most manger displays wins a prize.

After a couple of hours of singing Christmas caroles, finding manger scenes and enjoy the light displays, be sure to take a nice stroll on the river walk located off of Green Street.  Around the corner is McHenry’s newest restaurant Buddy Z.  Buddy Z is host to the famous Chicago pan pizzas and a real addition to the town of McHenry’s many fine restaurants.  McHenry is home to some of the finest schools, restaurants, shopping, churches, and parks.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a new home in McHenry, Gerstad Builders has many two-story and ranch floor plans.  They also will custom build from a floor plan of yours.  Building in McHenry is like living in the city with a country atmosphere.  After a night of touring the town I know you will agree.
