Mile High Marketplace stretches open-air shops and a farmers market over 80 acres. Annual pass-holders can ride their camelback caravans through the Marketplace gates free of charge (normally $2 on Fridays; $3 on Saturdays and Sundays), and, once inside, enjoy a bevy of discounts in the Marketplace shops and deals on munchies at the Marketplace Grill. The open-air bazaar offers framed artwork, brand-name clothing, home furnishings, bicycles, and more. Food stalls whip up a diverse range of grub and antique shops hawk vintage wares. Two stages of live music allow shoppers to take regular jitterbug breaks, and a throng of amusement-park rides for kids allow visitors to strut around with chicly wind-blown hair.
They don't look like the Christmas trees that grow in Arizona. And although they seem like they sprouted straight from a sugar plum-induced dream, Great West Christmas Tree's stunning selection of firs actually come from a sustainable farm in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Raised where the summers are mild and the winter's are moist, Great West's trees grow up lush and dark green, grown to be adorned with decorations and raised with impeccable table manners. As soon as they're freed from their earthly confines, they're carefully hand-trimmed, sorted by size, and escorted by helicopter and truck to their final destination at Great West Christmas Trees. Families can choose a wide array of trees based on species, height, and likeliness of charming Santa Claus into leaving extra gifts.
