About the Tour
The Holiday Homes Tour (HHT) is a favorite holiday tradition, providing a close-up look at some of the most beautiful homes in the area. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit VCC’s Kare for Kids Fund, which provides high-quality pediatric care for underserved children in North County.
Visitors on the tour will see homes with exceptional architectural details, highlighted by holiday decorations created by talented teams of volunteer North County interior designers. The tour attracts between 500 and 700 visitors, mostly from Vista, Carlsbad and Oceanside, but also from the rest of San Diego County and southern Riverside County. Many are repeat visitors who have made the Holiday Homes Tour a seasonal tradition, getting in the holiday spirit and becoming inspired with decorating ideas for their own homes.
Stay tuned for more information about 2014’s homes and designers! In the meantime, take a look at 2013’s homes below.

Bazaar & Opportunity Drawings
Vista Community Clinic will once again have a Holiday Artisans’ Bazaar and Opportunity Drawing at one of the homes on the 2014 tour. All artisans give back 15% of their proceeds from that day to Vista Community Clinic. Tour participants can shop for unique gift items and original art, as well as participate in an opportunity drawing for gift baskets.
