The Brown Palace takes great pride in showcasing our stunning spectacle of holiday décor each year. Matt Makens of 7NEWS calls The Brown Palace “a must do for the holidays,” and hundreds of hotel guests and Denver locals buzz about the breath-taking decorations that can be seen in the Atrium Lobby throughout the month of December. Some even include The Brown on their list of Denver’s most charming holiday displays. The Mile High City is a beautiful place to spend the holidays, and we’re honored to be included with some of the best of the best in holiday cheer.
Here are just a few of our favorite spots to bask in the spirit of the season:
Denver Zoo Holiday Lights – From 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. every night through January 5th, families can “oooh” and “ahhh” over the 38 illuminated acres of lights and more than 150 animated animal sculptures at the Denver Zoo.
Blossoms of Light (Denver Botanical Gardens) – Soak in the magic of more than one million colorful lights draped over the Gardens’ winter beauty while sipping warm drinks and tasty treats at the Denver Botanical Gardens now through January 1, 2014. Located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood just north of Cherry Creek, the Denver Botanical Gardens is a local favorite during the holiday season.
Trail of Lights (Chatfield Botanical Gardens) – Get out of town for a gorgeous view of the Colorado countryside in all its Christmas glory. The foothills of the Colorado Rockies provide a beautiful backdrop for the Trail of Lights at the Chatfield Botanical Gardens in Littleton, just 20 minutes south of downtown Denver.
Downtown Denver Grand Illumination – Downtown Denver is all ablaze stretching from Union Station in LoDo all the way to the City and County Building at Civic Center Park. Brightly colored floodlights light up the Capital Building each night in December for a traditional Denver display of holiday magic.
