Enjoy Winter with These Wonderful Activities Around Highlands Ranch

Winter brings snow, cold temperatures, and fun things to do in and around Highlands Ranch. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or you like to take things slower, this time of year offers something for everyone to enjoy. Best of all, each of these activities can be done close to our luxury apartments at Legacy at Highlands Ranch. 

Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides

What says winter more than a horse-drawn sleigh? There are few things as magical as the sound of tingling sleigh bells, the rythmic clop of a horse’s hooves, and a warm blanket across your lap. Enjoy breathtaking vistas, charming stores, and delightful downtown Highlands Ranch all while snuggled up in a horsedrawn sleigh. Let the whimsical spirit of winter whisk you away as your equine friend pulls you throughout the city.

Dog Sledding

Are you looking for something a little more fast paced than a relaxing horse-drawn sleigh ride? If so, you can try out dog sledding. This is a unique way to enjoy the season that you won’t soon forget. Feel the crisp winter breeze on you face as the dogs race through the snow, over hills, and around the beautiful landscape of Highlands Ranch.


What better way to enjoy winter, and the fluffy snow that comes with it, than by sledding and tubing? After bundling up in hats, gloves, and all things warm and waterproof, you can let your inner kid come out as you shoot down the Highlands Ranch hills, laughing and having an amazing time. Throw in the extra exercise of walking back up the hill with your sled or tube, and now you have a perfect winter outdoor activity. 

Enjoy all that winter has to offer in Highlands Ranch. If you’re looking to relax and unwind after all that outdoor fun, you can also schedule a lovely massage at a local salon. For more information about our luxury apartments, contact us today.
