Pearl Street Holidays

Courthouse and fountain lit up with Christmas lights on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, Colorado.

It's fun living in the US during the holiday season- there's a lot to see an do! If you're ever in the Boulder, Colorado area make sure you see Pearl Street! My husband and I have seen it sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas every year for the past 3 years- it is lovely. There's a lot of tasty places to eat and interesting shops year-round, but during the holiday season it's lit up with Christmas lights.

If you're there check out one of my favorite stores- Into The Wind- it has gorgeous kites, amazing wind chimes, and a lot of cool toys. It's fun to just walk through.

When you're driving away from Pearl Street check out this incredible yard on Baseline Road- the Christmas lights are out of this world!

Things To Do In Ohio: Wildlights at Columbus Zoo

Reflection of the Christmas lights in the lake at Columbus Zoo Wildlights.

Every Christmas the Columbus Zoo puts on the Wildlights festival. The festival has gone on for 22 Years and uses over 3 million LED lights.

It is beautiful- trees strung out with lights everywhere.
