Highlands Ranch Holiday Activities

Highlands Ranch HolidaysWow! It’s that time of year again already.  The holiday season has begun in Highlands Ranch and we just finished Thanksgiving.  So now we head into December and look forward to tons of Christmas cheer.  Thanks to the wonderful people in Highlands Ranch that take care to plan and provide us with so many fun holiday activities.

To begin, if you haven’t been out to BackCountry in Highlands Ranch, it is beautiful.  Trails, vistas, elk and some buffalo.  But come the holiday season, it can been quite a treat.  One of the many Highlands Ranch holiday activities is to go for a horse drawn hay ride or if we actually get some snow soon, a sleigh ride!  Fun for everyone.  Get some hot chocolate, stop for a campfire and just enjoy a good old fashioned holiday treat.

If you have “little ones”, then don’t miss the holiday teddy bear tea or breakfast with Santa.  Both of these Highlands Ranch holiday activities are family favorites and usually sell out so get tickets early and make this a very memorable year.  Most of the events for the holiday season kick off with the Hometown Holiday Celebration in Highlands Ranch Town Center.  This is where you want to be for the official tree lighting, entertainment and of course, Santa!

There are so many reasons to want to live in Highlands Ranch.  The many holiday activities are just a part of the year round community building events that make living here a special place to be.  If you do live here like I do, or maybe looking to live in Highlands Ranch I would like to help.  Just get in touch and we can have a friendly chat and see how I might help.

Speaking of houses in Highlands Ranch, don’t forget to enter your home for the house decorating contest if you think you can win.  Hurry, the entry deadline is December 5th.  Below is a video I took a couple years ago of an awesome display in Weatherstone.  Enjoy!

Living in Highlands Ranch – Christmas Lights in Weatherstone 2011

I have noticed in just the past few days I am receiving a large amount of traffic to my site here from search terms like, Christmas lights in Weatherstone, House in Weatherstone with Xmas Lights, Dancing Christmas Lights in Weatherstone…. and so on. And they folks are finding posts that I wrote in previous years about the spectacular home in the Weatherstone neighborhood of Highlands Ranch on Meyerwood with a fabulous Christmas lights display that is choreographed to music.

So apparently people want to know if its up again this year, 2011.

I happen to drive by the other day, during the day, and lights were in the yard. So yes, it appears to be a go.  I will make an attempt to drive by this evening and see if they are on yet. But my guess is yes.  I will update here with more info when I have it. updated – yes, the display is on & wonderful!

I will also be posting a list of other great homes in Highlands Ranch that are decked out with lights for the holidays and all over the Denver area, so watch for that too.

Here’s a link to a public youtube video that is online (I didn’t film it) of the home in Weatherstone on Meyerwood of a past year.
