Decidng on a Christmas Destination

Jump to last reply

Help! We are an Aussie family and I want to spend Christmas somewhere in Colorado. So far I am tossing up between Durango and Breckenridge but I am having so much trouble making a decision. Breckenridge is easier and cheaper to get to, but the prices for Christmas are very expensive (although we are looking at some the week before Christmas and leaving on the 26th of December so will hopefully get a reduced rate for a few of the nights). Not that price is really going to sway my decision...

Basically I want to rent a condo or house where there is lots of dining and shopping options and we can park the car and walk. We don't snow ski but want to do all the other winter activities with our children who will be 6 and 3. Possibly even have a skiing lesson or 2.

Which town do you think would be the best Christmas destination for us? I have seen some Youtube videos of Breckenridge at Christmas and it looks magical with all the decorations etc). I know everyone has different opinions and likes but I am happy to hear them all so I can get some help deciding!

I have also considering going to Breck for a few days and then driving onto Durango for the next few days including Christmas day but I wonder if we would be happier to just stay put for a bit (as we will be visiting Disneyland, Fort Worth and friends in Kansas in December before Christmas and might be sick of moving around).

I have visited Boulder, Estes Park and RMNP before without children and loved Colorado, so have picked it to come back with our children and have our first white Christmas. Any help appreciated.
