Here’s a free Christmas activity that your families might enjoy: visiting the Broadmoor’s gingerbread house! Every year, their pastry team creates a gigantic gingerbread house on the second floor of the hotel, and it’s free to go and view. It smells incredible, too, at least right now while it’s still “fresh”.
We had fun looking at the details of the house and guessing what they used to make each piece. You can watch a video on their Facebook page of the construction process – it’s pretty incredible!
We stopped in at their coffee shop/bakery while we were there, and in case you want to know before you take your family, a hot chocolate is $2.95, apple cider is $2.55, and most of their pastries are $3-$4.
Oh, and if you’re there during the day time, you can also check out the free Penrose Heritage Museum right across from the Broadmoor.
