As fresh snow coats the slopes, Colorado is beckoning its locals and visitors for a holiday break! With the holiday season approaching, it’s time to start planning day trips, weekend getaways, and winter traditions. From hot-tubing during snowfall to skiing down glittering snow – there’s something for everyone this winter!
5 Ways to Enjoy Colorado this Holiday Season
Let’s look at 5 ways you, your friends, and family can enjoy the beautiful Colorado winter during the holiday season. And, of course, remember to let Avo Limo take you there!
Winter Park: Snow Tubing
Remember the Lampoon’s National Christmas Vacation? It’s always a great movie that reminds us of the joy found on family vacations. One scene, in particular, is the sledding scene where Chevy Chase skids across the snow. While his journey ends in a parking lot, the Fraser Tubing Hill provides visitors with a safe, fun experience that continues beyond the parking lot. Providing a lift-tow system to help carry the tube – this treat is fun, easy, and great for all ages with varying hill sizes.
Colorado Springs: North Pole Santa’s Workshop
Despite his busy schedule, Santa makes time for the families and friends who come to see him in Colorado Springs! This vintage-themed amusement park is a great way to bring little ones together and celebrate the Christmas season! Visit Santa, see Christmas lights, and even enjoy a train ride through the pines. Make sure you stay cozy with a warm cup of cocoa because the North Pole can get chilly! Open from November 3rd to December 24th; there’s something for everyone here.
Denver: Denver Zoo Lights
Nothing says Christmas like holiday lights! Luckily, the Denver Zoo brings together animals and holiday lights to provide families and friends with a great way to enjoy the community and the holidays. Open starting November 3rd to January 1st, 2023 – there’s something for all ages. See the magic come to life, visit animals, and find bliss in colorful lights, ice carvings, seasonal cocktails, and holiday gifts! While prices vary, each experience is uniquely wonderful.
It’s no surprise that Vail is a hotspot for adrenaline lovers and celebrities. The town is captivating as it rests in the stunning Colorado mountains – and we can’t forget the luxurious hotels, shopping centers, and restaurants. Visit the Vail Ski Resort, the state’s largest, and find a slope you’re ready to conquer! Bundle up and get ready because there is something fun for all ages- bringing people together and enjoying nature’s gift of snowy hills!
Denver: Parade of Lights
Downtown Denver is an excellent place for all ages. Enjoy local craft beers, unique shopping, and the bright lights of the Denver Parade of Lights hosted by 9News. A local tradition for many, this parade is a great way to feel a part of the Denver community! Starting at 6 pm on December 3rd, there is something magical about the colorful lights, community, and gathering of friends and family that keeps the holiday season alive for visitors and locals!
