How much does the average Coloradan budget for the holidays?

Turns out the amount differs by location — and it differs a lot.

WalletHub came up with holiday-budget estimates for communities across the country — an incredible 570 of them. Included were sixteen cities in Colorado, where holiday-budget estimates start at $336 and top out at $1,484, a difference of well over $1,000.

Note that several metro-area suburbs wind up at or near the top of the roster — but residents of Denver and Boulder proper apparently don't open their wallets quite as wide.

Count down the sixteen Colorado communities below, with data and national rankings illustrated by photos intended to get you in the seasonal spirit. Click to view the original WalletHub post.
