Colorado Holiday GemsThe holiday season is upon us (and barreling by at impressive speed) but just because we’re fast approaching Christmas and New Year’s doesn’t mean you’re out of time to spend time with some Colorado holiday gems, some which are hidden! Looking for a great place to take a day off with family or visitors from out of town? Check out these hot spots and make this holiday season an extra magical one for you and yours.

The Broadmoor Gingerbread Chapel

Is there anything cooler than seeing something edible (albeit at 3.7 million calories, it’s probably not something you’d really want to indulge in) that towers over you? The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs features a 12-foot tall, 150 square foot gingerbread and candy confection masterpiece that will be up in the lobby until January 2. Since this year’s creation is their biggest yet, you definitely don’t want to miss out.

Downtown Denver New Year’s Eve Fireworks

If you’re looking for a classic New Year’s Eve experience, look no further than downtown Denver. The fireworks display on the 16th street mall is the picturesque NYE experience and quite an impressive display, we might add. Sure, the crowds are wild, but the electricity of being surrounded by a massive crowd of people ringing in the new year and shouting out that countdown together is hard to beat. We can’t wait to see what impressive stops they pull out this year to wow us as we head into 2018

Polar Express Train Ride

You’ve seen the movie (probably over 100 times if you have kids) now experience the real thing. In Durango, you’ll find the Polar Express just waiting for you to hop on and have your own magical train ride. Though there are only single tickets left for this years’ rides, and only a few rides left in the year, tickets for 2018 go on sale next August so mark your calendars (or just head down to take a look and take it in, it’s truly an exceptional sight.)

The Denver Zoo Lights

For kids and adults alike, the Denver Zoo Lights are a must-see (just make sure you grab a hot cocoa while you’re there, too). The displays are spectacular and walking all around the zoo at night to soak it in is a fun way to create memories for the whole family. There’s no quicker way to feel like you’ve entered a winter wonderland (or maybe an elf’s fever dream) than the intricate, creative displays from the electric jungle to the sea of lights and more, the whole crew will love walking through over 60 acres of sensational lights.

Whether you’re traveling far or staying close to home this holiday season, there’s plenty of fun activities to get you in the spirit and ensure the whole family has new memories that will last for years to come. Colorado has fantastic hot spots to hit year-round and the most wonderful time of year is no exception! What are your favorite holiday must-dos in Colorado?
