See Them Shine: A Guide to NE Denver's Holiday Light Displays

Most Denver holiday light displays are found in the city’s suburbs, which can make an evening of light peeping a bit of a challenge for urban dwellers as the littles rarely want a long drive. But, we’ve uncovered some gems right here in NE Denver so tonight be sure to grab a holiday treat for the road and set out for the festiveness. (By the way, one mom reported they had peppermint milkshakes – brilliant!)

Park Hill Denver Holiday Light Displays

Christmas Light Wonderland, 3070 Hudson St.
This house boasts a 13 ft. Christmas tree with a “surprise inside,” a tunnel of light that is a perfect “selfie spot” and 65,000 lights set to music.

Joy and Peace, 2802 Jasmine
This decorator reports this is their first year decorating after being inspired by their neighbor at 28th and Kearney. Give them some first-year support (and go see 28th and Kearney too!).

Archway to Christmas, 2546 Dexter
In addition to the archway, see trees aglow and nutcrackers. This house’s residents plan to make the show bigger every year.

Stapleton Denver Holiday Light Displays

Toy Soldiers and Nutcrackers on Guard, 2661 Hanover Ct.
Larger than life nutcrackers and toy soldiers adorn this house. Props to the designers as their giant decorations are handmade.

33rd and Trenton
You’d be hard pressed to find someone in Stapleton that doesn’t know of this spectacular display that is actually a 40-minute show! But, we couldn’t do a light guide without including it. It is worth a visit every year, even if you can’t stay for the duration.

Curtis Park: Denver’s Oldest Neighborhood Brings in the New

Curtis Park may be Denver’s oldest neighborhood, but that doesn’t keep it from bringing in the new while maintaining its historic charm and friendly neighborhood feel.

Since the fall, three amazing restaurants have joined Denver’s Curtis Park -- proving just how hot this neighborhood is. Here’s a look at the great new dining and some other wonderful things about Curtis Park.

Lou’s Italian Specialties
So far restaurateur Joshua Pollack hasn’t been wrong in thinking that many Coloradoan’s are craving authentic East Coast tastes… from bagels to pizza and now an Italian deli. That’s right, Pollack is the man that brought us Rosenberg’s Bagels, followed up Famous Original J’s. And now it is Lou’s Italian Specialties, which opened earlier this week. Lou’s is like a trifecta of goodness: a deli, a specialty market and a restaurant with a wonderful assortment of “take and bake” meals. The deli offers hot and cold sandwiches, paninis, salads and soups. The market will have specialty oil, spices and more. And to take home? You can’t go wrong with spaghetti and meatballs with scratch-made marinara. Will all this yumminess, Denver’s Curtis Park residents may never have to prep their own meals again!

Liberati Osteria and Oenobeers
For having only opened months ago, Liberati Osteria and Oenobeers has made quite a name for itself – even making its way to the pages of Forbes magazine. So what is it all about? Authentic...
