If you're down Colorado Springs way, Manitou's main drag is always a treat to walk during the holidays. Also, Old Colorado City is fun during the Christmas season too.

Lots to find out with our version of Westword in the Colorado Springs Independent: Colorado Springs Independent | Calendar

Estes Park, CO always has lovely Christmas lights strung along the main street, Elkhorn Avenue. The nearby Stanley Hotel also is decorated in lovely white lights. If not mistaken, there may also be a parade during this holiday season.

Not to invoke a near summer crush of tourists or anything, but this is one of the most lovely times of year in town . . . and quietest. Strictly speaking, January, but still. If the roads often snow packed, but otherwise open (in part), Rocky Mountain National Park is a delight this time of year, and ever so beautiful.

In December he will be at the Loop on December 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th. Santa's Polar Adventure trains will continue to run after Christmas through December 30th.Santa's trains depart at 10:00am, 11:30am, 1:00pm, 2:30pm, and his Santa's Christmas Lights train at 4:00pm. Santa and his helpers will be giving each child a special gift for their holiday tree at home. All riders will get hot chocolate, candy canes and cookies.

I love Estes Park and RMNP in the winter. However, the Christmas parade was last Friday. It is always on the Friday night after Thanksgiving. Just FYI.
