December is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to view the winter wonderlands set up around the Bethesda area.

There’s nothing like stepping into a brightly illuminated garden or forest during the wintertime, with your breath curling into wispy tendrils as you sip on hot cocoa or cider while the dazzling red, green, and white lights twinkle all around.

But whether you prefer to drive around Bethesda to look at decorated houses or simply stroll through the city’s gardens, there’s something to offer you. Here are just a few “winter wonderland” events happening in Montgomery County.
