The winter season is an extraordinary time of the year to visit Greeley, Colorado. When the temperature starts to drop and winter’s first snowflakes begin to blanket the ground in Colorado, what’s your favorite way to stay entertained? Here’s a list of a few things that we love to do in the winter months!
start your day with the smell of roasted coffee
Aunt Helen’s boasts about being more than just a coffee shop. They offer a warm, professional and inviting environment with many delicious and unique breakfast and lunch options. Be sure to try their Waffle Wrap which is a slightly sweet, thin waffle that wraps around fresh eggs, cheese and your choice of Bacon, Sausage, Ham or Chorizo. It is one of a kind and you can only get one at Aunt Helen’s.
See a new movie or an old favorite at the Kress
The Kress Cinema & Lounge is Greeley’s only independent movie theater. It is also a full-service bar and restaurant that provides movie-goers and bar patrons with specialty cocktails, craft beer, wine & gourmet small plates, in addition to classic concessions. The theater takes advantage of the high, decorative plaster ceilings to create a large viewing space with historic ambiance. There is also a hidden speakeasy, but shhh it’s a secret.
feel the emotional experience of a live performance
The Union Colony Civic Center is Northern Colorado’s premier performing arts venue and is proudly owned and operated by the City of Greeley. Built in 1988 with a combination of public funds and private donations, the UCCC is home to two performance venues, Monfort Concert Hall, which seats 1,686 and Hensel Phelps Theatre, which seats 214. With over 100 events held per year, the UCCC offers a wide variety of Broadway musicals, concerts, comedy shows, and many local dance and school performances.
