EDITOR’S NOTE: We worked hard to put this map together using reader suggestions and locations we sought out ourselves. However, the vast majority of these locations are private residences and sometimes there are situations when they don’t have their lights turned on. Weather and technical difficulties can happen. If you discover any inconsistencies, please let us know so we can correct them. We also want to know if we missed anything!
