Our Favorite Light Displays Around Denver to See at Christmas

Christmas is here and nothing gets you in the spirit more than going to see the lights. Check out these fun lights displays around Denver this winter.

The Mile High Tree

Head to Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and see the largest installation of its kind in all of North America. One of the newest holiday traditions in Denver, the 110-foot-tall, 39-foot-diameter tree puts on a spectacular display with music every 30 minutes. Over a hundred people can even experience the display from within the cone of the tree itself. It’s so big you don’t even have to leave the car to see it from the street.

Christmas in Color

Come travel through one of the most dazzling displays of the season at Water World in Federal Heights. Christmas in Color has more than 1.5 million LED lights stretched into tunnels, trees, and holiday shapes with synchronized music for a full experience. It was so popular last year that they’ve opened a second location at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison.

Old Golden Christmas

The small town charm of Golden gets a visit from Christmas Past. The historic main street gets a healthy dose of lights displayed all season long with a holiday art market, live theater performances, a candlelight walk, and even a visit from Santa himself.

Zoo Lights

Although not a drive-through, you don’t want to miss the 29th annual lights extravaganza at the Denver Zoo. With over 2 million lights across 80 acres, it’s like walking into a fantasy world. Jump on the Denver Zoo Railroad and sing carols as you cruise through the display. You can watch artisan ice carvers create sculptures and peruse the holiday shopping bazaar to find one-of-a-kind gifts.

We at Transwest Buick GMC hope you and your family have a happy holiday season. When your car needs winter maintenance, give us a call.

Explore the Outdoors: Off-Road Destinations in Colorado

Hop in your new Yukon or Terrain from Transwest Buick GMC and explore the outdoors. Buick and GMC SUVs are great for adventurers with active lifestyles, as these models come with roomy interiors, powerful engines, and impressive capabilities. You can find a range of outdoor areas in the region, from the Rocky Mountain National Park to Mesa Verde.

According to the Outdoor Project, one of the top places to visit around here is Rocky Mountain National Park. This park has it all: crystal clear lakes (like Chasm, Nymph, Dream, and Emerald) and the Wild basin area for instance. The CCY route is great for experienced climbers, and you can stay at Lulu City or Stanley Hotel for the night.

Mesa Verde is like something out of a dream. This national park is home to the cliffside dwellings of indigenous peoples, with highlights being Cliff Palace, the Chapin Mesa, and Long House. You can see great views and learn about the ancestral home of the Pueblo people.

Be sure to visit Telluride. This location is at the end of a box canyon, which makes it truly unique. There are local trails, like the Jud Wiebe Trail and the Last Dollar Road, as well as daytime activities such as Sneffels Highline.

Other great off-road destinations in Colorado include the Great Sand Dunes National Park, Salida, Gunnison National Park, Silverton, Maroon Bells, Grand Junction, and Garden of the Gods.
