Grand Junction is alive with the holiday spirit – check out this line-up of socially distant activities and conveniences to make your heart merry and your spirit bright! We also encourage gifting yourself this season, so plan to splurge a little and do something special for numero uno. We all deserve a Polar Express hot cocoa (get it while you can!) or take ‘n bake for date night.
Downtown Grand Junction
While exploring the 12 Days of Christmas in Downtown Grand Junction, pop into your favorite local boutique. When you spend $50 or more (pretax), you can enter to win a Downtown Grand Junction Staycation. The prize package includes:

Main Street Bagels
After you finish shopping local and entering to win the Downtown Staycation, pop into Main Street Bagels and pick up their seasonally famous Polar Express Hot Chocolate. This local favorite is made with four different types of chocolate, including semi-sweet chocolate, all of which creates a rich and nuanced flavor. For an extra treat that you don’t need your wallet for, show a receipt (within 7 days of purchase) from any Downtown Grand Junction business (1st to 12th between Rood and White Streets) and receive a free cookie or cup of coffee. Want to share all this goodness? If you purchase five gift cards, you get one free! And the best part is, the free gift card equals the value of the lowest gift card purchased, so think BIG! Remember, we said to treat yourself? Keep that free gift card for you! Locals secret – place your artisan bread order for Christmas Eve pick-up so you can enjoy it fresh over the holiday.
Think back to your childhood when you were magically drawn to snow globes. Remember imagining what it would be like to be inside that beautiful globe? Now you can in real life! Plan to visit Devil’s Kitchen at the Hotel Maverick for a one-of-a kind snow globe outdoor dining experience. Up to six people can dine inside the transparent heated globes complete with cozy blankets. The perfect photo op that checks off your childhood dream while dining at an upscale, yet affordable Colorado cuisine inspired restaurant.
Bistro 743 – The DoubleTree by Hilton
We all have been cooking at home more these days, so we are encouraging you and your dishwasher to take a break and have someone else do all that hard work. Give Bistro 743 a call, located at the Doubletree by Hilton. Their chef has prepared a homemade Christmas dinner so all you have to do is heat it up. No mess, no dishes, and, let’s be honest – it does taste better when someone else makes it. Bistro 743 is offering this deal from now until December 21, so order ahead and plan to relax and play a few more board games on Christmas instead of cooking. Bistro offered this special over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was tremendously popular so don’t miss out this time!
Whether you are looking for a staycation get-a-way or are hosting friends and family, consider the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel. They are offering a Family & Friends Holiday Rate Special when you use the discount code LDTPK9. This special offer will be running until March 31 of 2021, so you have plenty of time to plan.
