Many Philadelphia neighborhoods go all out at the holidays, creating spectacular presentations of lights and decorations. In South Philadelphia, neighbors pool resources to create amazing displays.

Founding Footsteps, which offers BYOB trolley tours through Philly, launched the popular Holiday Lights Tour last winter.

The decorated holiday trolley leaves from Old City, traveling to the city's most dazzling light displays – including the must-see Miracle on 13th Street and the Smedley Street Christmas Spectacular.

Onboard, tour attendees can the drink wine or beer they brought along for the ride, while talented musicians play holiday tunes.
