Holiday Magic at The Gaylord

I recently swung by the Gaylord Rockies to see all that they have going on for the holidays this year. If you live in Painted Prairie, you probably know that Gaylord usually has a lot going on to celebrate various holidays and seasons throughout the year. If you don’t live in Painted Prairie (yet!), the Gaylord is pretty much across the street and offers all kinds of dining options, fun activities, a spa, pools, and a great staycation option (where you don’t have to travel far to feel a million miles away).

I’ll admit, it had been a while since I’d been inside The Gaylord and was impressed with the beautiful holiday trees and decor. Even if you don’t sign up for any of the events happening (which I’ll highlight below), the Gaylord is a fun place to go and grab lunch, or a festive drink from the lobby bar, and walk around taking in all the festive lights, the views of the Rockies and dowtown, and the beauty of the resort. Or, find a spot by a cozy fireplace and enjoy some relaxing conversation with friends and family.

Here are a few events worth checking out this holiday season:
