The search began with a tip about several nicely decorated home on Sladky Avenue in Mountain View, but we were soon distracted by nearby Los Altos, first by a home on the west side of Springer Road near Cuesta Drive.
A detour off of Grant Road just north of Fremont Avenue led us to several nicely decorated homes on Ranchita Drive and Garthwick Drive.
The most dazzling home of all was off of Ranchita Drive on the 1500 block of Julie Lane, which was covered with numerous details to hold your attention: lights, figurines and even the sound of pleasant Christmas tunes playing from a speaker.
