The Lake Helen Christmas Home Tour is one of areas most loved holiday home tours. For over two decades it has attracted hundreds of visitors from neighboring communities and beyond.

The Christmas Home Tour is a bi-annual two-day event occurring early December. 

Next Tour is December 2025. 

This self-guided holiday tour of homes and gardens was introduced by 

The Lake Helen League for Better Living in 1987. The first stop is historic Hopkins Hall where you can pick up your tickets, enjoy refreshments, be entertained and view the many items up for raffle.  Then venture out to the tree-lined streets to visit the homes, gardens, municipal buildings and churches that make Lake Helen a much sought after place to reside.  

This year's tour will include a special 50th anniversary celebration of The Lake Helen League for Better Living, the long time host of the Lake Helen Christmas Home Tour event.  Each year the tour features carefully selected homes and gardens within the historic district and beyond to celebrate Lake Helen's unique architectural character. 

Funds from the tour directly benefit local charities and neighborhood programs.
