If you’re a regular follower of this site, you know that I’m doing a series of posts about things to do in specific cities with kids this summer. Over the next few weeks I’ll highlight lots of major cities across the US. Not only are these great resources

if you live in these areas, but they’re also perfect for travel.

Denver, Colorado is an awesome place to live (or visit) with children. Beyond the beautiful landscape, the city has TONS to offer! In fact, I had a hard time narrowing this list down to just 20. The city is very family friendly and offers a diverse list of activities.
