Celebrate the Holidays in Denver

The holidays are in full swing, and Denver has a jam packed list of things for you to do to celebrate the season.

Sometimes it’s the little, but important, reminders that the holidays are upon us.  In downtown, it’s the ordinary afternoon of strolling along the 16th Street Mall, witnessing the transformation of this mile-long pedestrian promenade into a starry wonderland complete with horse-drawn carriages and holiday decor.

Enjoy the festivities Denver has planned to get in the holiday spirit.
