Tired of the old homestead? Looking for a weekend adventure? Why not get out and about for some family fun? Kids and grown ups alike will love these day trips and weekend sleep overs. You live in Denver for the great outdoors, so get out in it.
The hot springs pool in Glenwood Springs has become a spring tradition in my family. It's a bit of a jaunt up the mountains to this venue but it's well worth the trip when the roads are clear. Enjoy the beautiful scenery on the way and stay overnight once you get there. Prices are low and the pool is always warm. While you're there, check out the local shops and the caves.
Skiing is great in Colorado and deals abound in the spring. Call ahead for information on packages and deals. Not a skier? How about some snowmobiling? Check out some snowmobile tour companies. Find one at www.coloradosnowmobile.com or check the web for others. Have you ever tried snowshoeing? For kids spring entertainment, it can't be beat.
How about a springtime ranch adventure? There are many Colorado working ranches that would be glad to have you. What kid wouldn't like being a cowboy or cowgirl for the weekend this spring? Instead of the usual ski trip, check out Winter Park's Snow Mountain Ranch, an offshoot of the YMCA.
Or, choose your own ranch hideaway.
What kid wouldn't love a great spring road trip. Here in Denver, the mountains is a common destination. Why not head North, South or East instead. Tour the old towns on the great plains, set your sights on Boulder, or head south to Castle Rock and Colorado Springs. Check out the Great Sand Dunes, Utah Arches National Park or other natural wonders that surround us. How about a trip to mesa Verde? These spring entertainment ideas for kids are great for grownups too.
