Summer Activities For Denver Families

Temperatures are heating up in Denver and kids are out of school. Hello Summer! What a joyous time of year. But I know it can come with challenges.
Young or old, it can be difficult some days to decide what to do with our kiddos while they are out of school. 

Here are some Summer Activities For Denver Families for when you’re just not sure what to do!

  • Water: Days in Colorado can heat up quickly! One of my family’s favorite ways to cope with the heat is to cool off in a pool! One of our favorites is Water World. It’s always a hit with all ages. 

For younger children, the Bay Aquatic Park is so much fun. Children are $7 and adults are $9. (3 and under are free)

If splash pads are more your speed check these out. 

  • Zoo: If your family isn’t a water fan and prefers outdoor fun, I recommend the Denver Zoo. My pro tips would be to pack a picnic lunch and go around noon, as the crowds tend to be earlier in the morning. There are plenty of tables for eating, snacks throughout, and a train and carousel. 
  • Museums: Sometimes it is way too hot to take little ones outside. These days ae great fir museums. A hidden gem is the WOW! Children’s museum. Best for young children, offering educational, hands-on exhibits. 
  • Treats: What better way to enjoy summer than yummy pizza and ice cream?! Our favorite outing in the summer is Lucky Pie and Sweet cow ice cream. Great food, cool patio scene, and an ice cream shop attached. Both parents and kids will enjoy themselves.

Enjoy this special, yet quick time with your families. Summer always goes by too quickly.
