When people think of Colorado, the first image in their head is likely snow-capped mountain peaks — and we understand that impulse! Although we love our sunny summers and poetic autumns, we think there’s just something special about the winter months here in and around the Mile High City. As the season’s chill descends upon Colorado, Commerce City residents have a treasure trove of enchanting winter activities at their doorstep (and just beyond). Read on to dive into the magic of the season with these curated experiences, each offering a unique flavor of our gorgeous home state’s winter charm.
Attend a Denver Sporting Event
Whether you’re a rabid fan of professional sports or not, you’ve got to be impressed by the pedigree of major league franchises in Denver. The NHL’s Colorado Avalanche won a title in 2022, the Denver Nuggets are the defending NBA Champions, and the NFL’s Denver Broncos are… above .500 for the first time in a while! All three teams work hard to create fun atmospheres at their games, an experience your entire family is sure to enjoy. Just remember to dress appropriately — December football games in the elements are no joke!
Outdoor Ice Skating
What’s more romantic and straight-out-of-a-Hallmark-movie than ice skating? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or are looking to give it a whirl for the first time, your convenient home base at Reunion makes it easy to get out on the ice. Lace up your skates and twirl under the lights at Downtown Denver’s Skyline Park, or check out spots in other nearby picturesque locations like Golden Gate Canyon or Estes Park. Depending on where you choose to go you may need to bring your own skates, so be sure to research in advance for details!
Denver Winter Brewfest
Warm up with a selection of craft beers at Denver’s Winter Brewfest. Held on January 27 at Mile High Station, this is one of our favorite imbibing-centered events of the season! This annual gathering showcases the best of Colorado’s craft breweries, offering a perfect blend of winter cheer and local brews. Featuring unlimited tastings of delicious beers as well as live music, this is sure to be an absolute blast — and did we mention you get to take home a free commemorative souvenir glass?
Take a Trip to Fort Collins
Have you ever been to Fort Collins? Located about an hour north of your lovely Reunion home, this quaint college town is the home of Colorado State University — and it’s most beautiful during the winter. Old Town Fort Collins was actually the inspiration for Main Street USA at Disneyland! Take a short road trip with your loved ones to stroll through the adorable downtown with lights hanging above, popping into boutiques and shops (not to mention world-class breweries like New Belgium and Odell).
As you embark on these winter adventures, consider the inviting community of Reunion in Commerce City as the backdrop to your seasonal joy.
