Acadian Discoveries: Roper Mountain Holiday Lights

Now that everyone has had a chance to recover from their Thanksgiving feasts, we are ready to prepare for the Christmas season. The most noticeable sign that “tis the season” is the reemergence of lights, tinsel, and wreathes around the homes of Greenville. Anyone in the upstate will tell you, though, that one of the brightest displays can be found at the Roper Mountain Science Center. The RMSC is a year-round treat, offering the perfect place for school field trips or more spontaneous visits. With their planetarium, Butterfly Adventure, and summer camp- to name just a few of their exhibits- visitors have plenty of ways to enjoy learning about the natural world. From Thanksgiving to December 30, however, it’s hard to focus on anything except their spectacular Christmas lights display. The Roper Mountain Holiday Lights have been a Greenville tradition for 24 years, raising over 2.4 million dollars for community charities. You can enjoy the sights while giving back to community from 6 to 10 PM every night until the holidays are over.

For more information on Roper Mountain Holiday Lights, you can visit them at their website here, and be sure to tune in every Thursday for more Acadian Discoveries.
