Popular Colorado winter getaways

Traveling is one of the best ways to create memories and check off some of the adventurous activities on your bucket list. If you have “visit Denver” on your bucket list, then winter is easily the best time to visit here.

The metro area here is full of unforgettable sights! Some of the most fun activities in Denver don’t even require an entire day.

The beauty of Colorado is, it’s at its peak during the winter. With snow on the ground, we’d highly recommend visiting at this time!

Even though it is tempting to stay locked up inside, start a fire, and binge watch shows on Netflix, the best memories will only be made after you get out of the bed and enjoy all the landmarks that Denver has to offer.

Here are some of the best places to visit and indulge in adventurous activities to create unforgettable memories.

Denver Christkindl Market in Skyline Park
The Denver Christkindl Market includes all sorts of vendors from Germany and other countries that offer high-quality, handcrafted gifts. If you’re into traditional, hand-carved wooden figurines (who isn’t?), ornaments, candles, and more, than this place is for you.

The traditional German food vendors here will not let you walk away without you wanting to sample them all. If you’re feeling a little extra, you can even sip on warm Glühwein (“glowing” wine y’all) and listen to traditional Christmas carols. The best part (aside from the glowing wine), it’s free admission. Cheers!

Denver Art Museum
Previously known as Denver Artist’s Club, the Denver Art Museum was founded in 1893 and it has become one of the most popular art museums in the western United States.

Here, you can find a collection of more than 70,000 works of art that has visitors flocking in throughout the year.

Feeling boujie this winter? Perfect. From now until March 2019, you check out the stunningly curated exhibit, Dior: From Paris to the World.

What’s better? Free general admission Saturdays.

Red Rocks Amphitheater
Is any visit to Denver complete without paying a visit to the iconic Red Rocks Park? We’d say no.

This stunning park is located among the towering red sandstone formations in the foothills of Denver.

During the winter the park becomes sprinkled with frost and snow, turning into a serious masterpiece. In this Denver mountain park, you will find a natural amphitheater where time and time again, we’ve seen some of the finest artists and bands perform.

Denver Botanic Gardens
Pay a visit to the stunning Denver Botanic Gardens and embrace the holidays with a blossom of colorful lights. Literally. The Blossom of Lights™ is the garden’s signature event, on-going for it’s third decade.

The 2018 winter extravaganza promises to be bigger and brighter than ever before. If you thought Clark Griswold was a lighting expert, just wait until you see this.

Rocky Mountain National Park
When you have the Rocky Mountains around you then why not visit them with your loved ones during winters?

Home to more than 14,000 ft. peaks, Rocky Mountain National Park is a breathtaking site encompassing over 265,000 acres of space which is perfect for snowshoeing adventures.

If you love adventures (and sweating), you can even indulge in winter hiking, sledding, ice skating, tubing, snowcat tours, snowmobiling, and much more.
