Fun things to do in boulder

If you look in the dictionary under “places to visit for kids of all ages”, you will probably find Boulder! This stunning Colorado city has great year round activities (and a lot are FREE too!), which are perfect for the entire family.

Want some classic family fun? Gateway Park Fun Center should be your first stop! With go-karts, a human maze, mini golf and batting cages this center is great for active kids as well as the entire family!

Skiing in summer? It’s not strange at Shredder, which has created the total indoor ski experience for those as young as 10 months up to the teens.  The adventure continues with places like Valmont Bike Park - are you ready to take on the cross country trails and dirt bike jumps!

Whilst Boulder is nestled in the mountains so great for the active kids, there are other activities such as the cultural (and FREE!) Leanin Tree Museum of Western Art, and the charming Cottonwood Farms where you can get lost in the straw bale maze, enjoy farm animals and pick fruit.

A short drive from Denver, Boulder is not only pretty to look at, it’s FUN to visit!
