Each year, Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street illuminates most of its 24 acres, filling gardens and ponds with glowing spheres and fantastical light sculptures that create magical animated scenes. Each year it appears to get bigger and better. The grand illuminated O'Fallon Perennial Walk and interactive light display in the UMB Amphitheater are visitor favorites. Other special areas include the Romantic Gardens, Japanese Garden and South African Plaza. The Orangery and Marnie's Pavilion are open during Blossom of Lights, but might be closed some evenings for private events. Pick up a bite to eat or a warm beverage at the café or visit snack and beverage stations as you stroll. Remember to wear sturdy shoes and gloves as paths can be icy and the evening winter weather can be chilly. The Gardens is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's days, but open at night for the lights.

- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: Blossoms of Light brings the winter-dormant gardens back to vibrant life for a few weeks, and it's well worth the trip to see them.
