Festive Holiday Activities to Do With Your Family in Colorado Springs This Year



The holidays are a magical time for creating memories with your loved ones! That's why I compiled a list of some of Colorado Springs' most wonderful winter activities to do with your family this holiday season. (Hint: There's one on this list you DEFINITELY won't want to miss!) I wish you and your family the most magical holiday season and can't thank you enough for the support you've shown Life Photography by Melissa this year. 2022 was another amazing year for the books! Happy Holidays!

This is the perfect holiday event for kids of all ages! Take a ride on the Santa Express Train to the North Pole in Colorado's Royal Gorge. Meet Santa and make memories your children will treasure for years to come!


Each ticket includes a Santa Express ride, meeting Santa Claus on the train, cocoa and cookies, and a special gift from Santa.

The inaugural Bridge of Lights event is one you won't want to miss! This drive-thru light display is like none you've ever seen before.


The suspension bridge will be decked out with thousands of lights and visitors will have the rare opportunity to drive across the bridge, enjoy spectacular views of the Royal Gorge at night, see the lights throughout the park, and even enjoy holiday music and hot cocoa and cookies from the comfort of your own car as you cross the bridge. This is one you'll want to add to your activity list for many years to come!
