Looking for something fun and inspiring to do today? Put stopping by the Colorado Springs Old North End Holiday Home Tour on your list. Not only is it fun to see the beautiful Old North End homes decked out for the holiday season but the ticket sales benefit TwoCor a non-profit organization in Colorado springs that "helps vulnerable, traumatized and at-risk young people in our community by providing healing and training for a productive life".
How often do you drive by a neighborhood or fun house and wonder what the house is like inside? Here is your opportunity to not only get an up close and personal tour inside these gorgeous homes but also learn about their history and architectural significance.
In addition to the architectural beauty of the houses, the background surrounding these historic homes is often fascinating in who built them and has owned them over the years. One of the homes on this years tour was the founder of Patty Jewett Golf Course home. Patty Jewett is a public golf course near downtown Colorado Springs.
The self-guided tour runs today, Saturday, December 15th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tickets are $30 per person and can be purchased at each home on the tour. Below are the addresses of homes on this year's tour:
1600 North Nevada
1628 North Tejon
207 West Columbia
1225 Wood Avenue
I would love to read more about what you enjoy during the holiday season? Wishing you a holiday season steeped in friendship, family and a reason for the season.
