There are quite a few places in the Denver and in the surrounding areas that you can view spectacular Christmas lights.
- Denver Botanic Gardens hosts two different light shows. One is at the Denver Botanic Gardens on York Street and the other location is the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Last year we went to the Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens on York Street. It is a lovely experience. The Gardens are decked out in gorgeous lights. The illumination of lights is breathtaking. This year we went to the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield to see Trail of Lights. Each light show is different. The Denver Botanic Gardens on York Street showcases the gardens while the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield truly takes you on a Trail of Lights. The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield is located in Littleton. I bought a Living Social deal for the Gardens. We received a hot chocolate with our deal. We walked the trail looking at the stunning lights. However, it was freezing the night we went and the “warming huts”(a hut filled with warm air) was a welcome part of the experience. The two other locations that you can view lights in the Denver area are:
- Denver Zoo presents Zoo Lights—http://denverzoo.org/zoolights/ Last Christmas we took my family on Christmas Eve to view the lights at the Denver Zoo. It was a great way to spend Christmas Eve. Some of the animals and fish were out for viewing on Christmas Eve.
- Hudson Gardens–A Hudson Christmas The Hudson Gardens are located in Littleton and to be honest we haven’t seen their Christmas lights display. We drove passed it on our way to the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Next year we will definitely attend this spectacular showcase of lights.
