It's the most magical time of the year at The Cavalier hotel. Make your way to the Virginia Beach Boardwalk this holiday season and drive down the isle of shiny magical lights guaranteed to impress and delight viewers of all ages.


Right outside our doors, the annual McDonald's Holiday Lights at the Beach Drive is slated to kick off the holiday festivities in Virginia Beach this November 18th. Visitors near and far flock to this popular celebration to see the shimmering light displays spanning 30 blocks. Drive down the boardwalk to see dozens of dazzling light installations that shine in the night sky. Some typical displays include Santa on his sleigh and sea creatures to go along with the beach setting. There will also be a 40-foot tall Christmas tree lit up for viewing, and visitors can tour this lights festival all the way up to its finale on January 1, 2017.


Bringing holiday spirit and joy, this family-friendly event is expected to delight over 25,000 carloads this year alone. Revered as the most favorite highlight of the light show, the massive "12 Days of Christmas" display showcases light spectacles that stand over 20 feet tall.
