For the past 43 years, thousands of twinkling lights and traditional decorations have adorned the winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford as part of the Holiday Nights celebration. This year’s festivities start with a tree lighting on November 23 and run through December 31 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas). Guided tours take visitors through the spruced-up homes and gardens at 6 and 7 p.m. nightly. www.edisonfordwinterestates.org
