Barr Lake State Park

A premier Colorado spot for birdwatching.

Reviewed By Jim R - Highlands Ranch, Colorado

This park is good because of leadership, staff and volunteers who offer such a variety of programs and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors,
With the restrictions in funding our state park system they were able to build a great nature center - this is good for our community.
It is fun to walk around the lake and see the bird life - lots of white pelicans the day I was there.

Vintage Aero Flying Museum

Reviewed By SargeantKinchloe - California

A little off the beaten track, at a small airport north east of Denver. The museum was started by the current operator's grandfather. It has a good set of flying replica's of WWI aircraft. The real treasure is the WWI articles. Uniforms, memorabilia, nick-knacks for all WWI aviation participants - US, UK, France, Germany, Italy.... Most of the European ones are one of a kind because WWII destroyed most of the WWI museums in Europe.

Blitz Paintball

Reviewed By CinColo - Denver, Colorado

My 12 yr. old daughter and her friend and her 19 year old and 17 year old cousins just had their first paintball experience at Blitz yesterday. None of them had ever played before. They had a great time! If it's your first time, prepare to take 30 min-1 hour with orientation, fitting, asking questions, and reading about the many different games you can play. It's recommended you do a couple private games first (if you have enough people) to get used to the rules and equipment. Then you can play public. You can also switch back and forth between private and public games throughout the day. Remember to ask to read their game list, so you can get an idea of the rules for each. Good starting games include capture the flag and capture the duck. Also, always make sure and bring the recommended clothing. One other note. It appears they offer snacks during the spring/summer/fall but not winter, so remember to pack along something to snack on. The kids are very eager to go back again!

Riverdale Golf Courses

Reviewed By Bob H - Kirkwood, Missouri

We played 18 on the Dunes on a August Monday morning and it was in great shape.I found it challenging with lots of water and tricky views from the tee boxes or fairways. The yellow, browns and greens of the grasses against the blues of the lakes and sky painted a gorgeous scene with the clouds above and the mountains in the distance. We enjoyed our walk here.
