Here are some of the top cities to check out, so get on your dancing shoes and gear up for one memorable holiday.
It is impossible to go wrong kicking the new year off in the famous “Mile High City” Denver. If party hopping is right down your alley, then make sure to check out the Resolution NYE Parties, Black Tie Events and even Masquerade Balls at midnight. A music venue to check out is Decadence, one of the cities biggest bashes. Umphrey’s McGee will also be playing on New Year’s Eve at the Fillmore for a more casual event. Most importantly, do not miss the annual NYE Fireworks show: one is at 9pm at the 16th Street Mall and the fabulous fireworks show at midnight as well.
Colorado Springs is another great city to ring in the New Year. If you happen to be downtown, make sure to experience all of the festivities going on. There will be huge video screens in town, music, fireworks and 4 hot-air balloons rising into the sky to set the New Year off right.
Durango is a fantastic city where unforgettable memories are made. Durango is home to the Polar Express, which can be found at the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. It is a evening filled with lots of fun, from a lantern-lit train ride to eating delicious food and drinking champagne at midnight. Other events going on are the winter solstice market, the torchlight parade and, of course, fireworks to celebrate the New Year.
Breckenridge is the mountain town that has it all. If you are looking for a night out on the town with friends and family, hop on our Breckenridg airport shuttle for a chance to ski down the mountain with torches followed by a parade and fireworks. Vacationers looking for a ride to and from the airport up to Breckenridge, just call Peak 1 Express for the most affordable shuttle rides.
No matter what you decide to do for the Holidays, there is no wrong decision. Whether you decide to spend the night bundled up next to a fire, sipping hot chocolate with your loved ones, or decide to dance the night away listening to great music, you are still kicking the New Year off right.
