3 Awesome Family-Friendly Summertime Activities

Colorado is a breathtaking place, boasting incredible beauty throughout every season. Summers in Colorado are picture-perfect--warm, sunny days (with low humidity!) and cool, comfortable evenings. These quintessential summer days are perfect for enjoying the numerous fantastic activities found in Colorado. Check out some of the best summer activities in this lovely state (suitable for the whole family!): 

1. Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park. Open from April 29th-October 29th, Elitch Gardens is conveniently located in the beautiful city of Denver. The whole family will have fun with over 54 rides and attractions to choose from--a wildly entertaining water park, adorable kiddie rides, hair-raising roller coasters, a free summer concert series, fireworks shows, and family shows. Be sure to check out the fabulous Dive-In movies shown in the water park on Friday nights from June 30-August 4. Your family and friends can catch awesome titles like Jaws, Finding Dory, Pets, and Star Wars: Rogue One. 

2. Butterfly Pavilion. Located in Westminster, Butterfly Pavilion is an amazing, unique zoo featuring thousands of invertebrates. A visit to Butterfly Pavilion will take guests through tropical rainforests, exciting underwater worlds, and beautiful gardens. Catch a glimpse of more than 5,000 creatures including shrimp, squid, ants, centipedes, Rosie (the famous tarantula), and of course, butterflies. Spend some time outdoors in the breathtaking gardens and take a hike on the nature trail to make the most of your summer day. 

3. 88 Drive-In Theater. Take a drive to Commerce City this summer and spend a nostalgic night among the stars. At 88 Drive-In Theater, you can catch three movies for one low ticket price of $8 (kids under 12 are free!)--at least two of these features are current Hollywood hits. The snack bar boasts a variety of delicious treats to help you enjoy your movies, including pizza, popcorn, burgers, candy, and ice cream. 

Summer should be full of fun, laughter, excitement, and plenty of sunshine. Create invaluable memories with family and friends this summer, and please feel free to contact us to learn about more fantastic venues in Colorado.
