The Town Of Las Vegas, New Mexico Will Become Your New Favorite Holiday Destination
Looking for a new favorite holiday destination? If you’re looking to build your Christmas cheer, you won’t want to miss visiting one historic city that goes all out during the holidays.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Welcome to the wonderfully festive city of Las Vegas, located about one hour east of Santa Fe.
Each year, this historic city goes out of its way to show off its Christmas spirit and we know that in just one visit, you'll be hooked.
It all begins with lighting the Christmas tree and sprucing up the streets with lights, garlands, and other festive decorations.
The tree will be lit on December 5 - don't miss it!
Later in the weekend, check out the Historic Holiday Home and Building Tour.
This annual self-guided tour takes place on December 7 and allows you to explore a selection of Las Vegas' 900-some historic buildings. Enjoy music and refreshments along the way.
But most importantly is the main event here: the Electric Light Parade. This massive annual parade features twinkling lights strung around floats, marching bands, and more!
The parade takes place on December 14 this year.
During the parade, kids will get a chance to meet Santa and leave a letter for him.
The city will also host a special Hogwarts Holiday Family Tea Party, a Harry Potter-themed event.
The event will take place at the Sala de Madrid building on the New Mexico Highlands University campus on December 14.
Want to spend a night or two to fully absorb the Christmas cheer? Check out the Historic Plaza Hotel.
The hotel's graceful beauty is only enhanced by all the Christmas decor.
Las Vegas is located in northern New Mexico, about one hour east of Santa Fe via Interstate 25.
