5 Fun Family Activities in Denver

5 Fun Family Activities in Denver

Keeping the kids busy and entertained on the weekend can be a challenge. With so many fun, family activities in Denver, it is easy to spend quality time doing something everyone can enjoy. Denver offers numerous activities to help your family bond, learn something new, and have a great time. Here are five of our favorite family activities in the metro area.

EscapeWorks Denver

Come test your problem-solving skills and improve your teamwork as you uncover clues to escape your room. With five themed escape rooms (Egyptian Tomb, Casino Heist, The Big Game, Outbreak, and Beyond the Flower Shop), you can choose a new challenging adventure each time you visit us.

The current fastest escape time out of any of our rooms is 33 minutes and 30 seconds. Do you think you and your family can beat the record? EscapeWorks Denver is open seven days a week, and if you would like, you can book an entire escape room for yourselves. Good luck!

Butterfly Pavilion

Enjoy the rainforest environment and the butterflies who call it home. While exploring the Butterfly Pavilion, say hello to Rosie, the resident tarantula. Camp-outs, rainforest yoga, and special exhibitions provide many reasons to take your family again and again to learn more about our natural world.

Denver Museum of Nature and Science

The museum membership grants free admission for the whole family all year as well as discounts in the shops and tickets to special exhibitions. The Discovery Zone is perfect for children aged 3-5. Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy the permanent exhibits of the human body, prehistoric life, wildlife, and outer space. The museum is open every day except December 25.

The Denver Zoo

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! The Denver Zoo features a variety of popular special events. During Halloween, enjoy Boo at the Zoo, a special trick-or-treat event. Bunk with the Beasts Family CampOUT is also a popular event where you and your family spend the evening at the zoo for an after-hours tour, close-up animal encounters, dinner, and more.

Dinosaur Ridge

Hike along one of two trails to explore dinosaur fossils and tracks. Afterwards, visit the exhibit hall for more fossils and interactive displays. Located on West Alameda Parkway in Morrison, just a short drive west of Denver, Dinosaur Ridge is a great place to spend an afternoon with the family.
