Fun things to do in DENVER

We understand that sometimes kids can be hard to please (as much as we love them!), but take them to a city like Denver and we are confident they will be grinning from ear to ear the whole time! Want to know why? Of course you do!

Denver has pretty much everything.  Museums like the Children’s Museum of Denver and Denver Museum of Nature and Science will captivate kids of all ages.  Animal lovers will be in their element at the Denver Zoo or Downtown Aquarium.  Want thrills more than spills? Elitch Gardens or Lakeside Amusement Park will do the trick! Want spills more than thrills? Head to Water Ways or Waterworld to cool off!

Got too much energy? Xtreme Challenge Arena or Skate City Littleton should exhaust even the most energetic of kids.

Denver also has some amazingly green spaces to just relax in, like City Park, great to spend some time in between all your adventures.

Show us a kid that isn’t happy, and we’ll show you a kid that hasn’t been to Denver!
