Four Things Your Family Can Do in Colorado This Summer

Colorado is rapidly rising on lists of best places to live in the United States, and it's easy to see why. There's beautiful scenery, good weather and no shortage of things to do. Here's our list of the top four things your family can do in Colorado this summer.

For the Adventurous: Explore the Great Outdoors

They don't call Colorado "the sunshine state" for nothing! With a temperate climate and beautiful scenery, Colorado is a beautiful place to spend some time outside. Best of all, there are many free or low budget places to explore. Take the family on a hike or camp out for a few days in a National Park. If you need a lower impact walk outdoors with senior family members, try the paved trails of Garden of the Gods.

For the Artists: Music or Street Festivals

No matter what you're interested in, there's a corner of Colorado that celebrates it. Denver may be known as the major hub for cultural events, but festivals appear in all cities over the summer. You may be interested in trying frozen turkey bowling at the quirky Frozen Dead Guy Days festival. Active families can enjoy the Lyon's Outdoor Games which also hosts a plethora of local craft beers. With a little research you're sure to find food, music and activities to fit every member of your family.

For the Foodies: Farmer's Markets

There's no better way to support your local community than a farmer's market. These pop up markets are a great way to get to know the farmers, craftsmen, artists and even food trucks in your community. You can pick up produce enjoy live music and get perfect gifts to pamper your friends (or yourself)! You can find a farmer's market close to home or in a neighboring town you'd like to explore.

For the Intellectuals: Museums

If culture is more your thing, Colorado has museums and oddities to suit any culturally minded person. Denver holds some impressive museums like the Denver Art Museum and Museum of Nature and Science, but there are all sorts of interesting educational opportunities across the state. The Wow! Children's Museum in Lafayette has plenty of activities to engage youngsters and their families. You can also get up close and personal with history by visiting one of the many ghost towns along the Front Range. 

Bonus: Catch a game

Catch a ball game at the Rockies Stadium, or tour the Olympic Training Center. No matter what kind of sports fan you are, Colorado's athletic oriented mindset will inspire you to get moving and cheer on some of the top athletes in the world.

There are great activities all over the map in Colorado. If you're looking to move to the Front Range to take advantage of the excitement, contact Team Lassen today and get your adventure started!
