Where are the best Christmas lights in Colorado?
Colorado is certainly a winter wonderland when the snow flies. So it is no surprise that we get pretty festive for the holidays. Here are a few of the best Christmas lights in Colorado that you may not have heard about yet:
- Garden of Lights, Fort Collins, CO: Head to the Gardens on Spring Creek in Fort Collins to enjoy a holiday light show that feels like you are entering a whimsical world of color. The entire 18-acre botanical garden is dressed up for the holidays in vibrant glowing outfits of plant-themed light displays that are sure to bring a smile to your lips. The event runs from early December until just before Christmas Eve.
- Seven Falls, Colorado Springs, CO: You've seen all of the holiday light shows, drive-thru-holiday lights, and zoo lights already - so what is left? How about a waterfall light show? Seven Falls is an impressive 180-foot-tall waterfall in Colorado Springs that is pretty amazing year-round. When it receives a Christmas makeover, however, it takes on a whole new level of beauty and wonder. The entire waterfall and surrounding canyon are lit up with hundreds of thousands of multi-colored lights that are nothing short of magical.
