Located just south of Littleton, a southern suburb of the Denver area is amazing to drive up and see Bison roaming. They were right next to the fencing allowing us an up close view. The park is on a high mesa so the views from Pikes Peak to Mt Evans to Longs Peak are amazing, and if its in the morning the sky is usually cloudless. There are some trails and bike paths but they run along a fence line to keep you separate from the animals and they parallel the roadway, not as much fun but hey, there are buffalo's!

Ever dream of flying? Now you can at iFLY Indoor Skydiving in Denver. Experience the thrill of skydiving without having to jump from a perfectly good airplane - no falling, no parachutes, just you floating on a smooth cushion of air with our professional instructor right next to you. No special skills are needed, just a sense of adventure. iFLY is safe for kids 3 and up, fun for the entire family, and perfect for birthday parties or groups. iFLY is the experience of a lifetime.
Great fun at any age. Our Saturday morning session was extra special as the Air Force Academy cadets were the before us, practicing for their first parachute dive. It gave us a sense that the experience would be pretty close to an actual sky dive. The instructors do all the hard work. A just do what they tell you and enjoy the ride. Definitely pay the $10 for the High Fly experience! I was almost too afraid to try it, but so happy I did. We got a copy of the video and impressed all our friends, even though it was a piece of cake.

This is amazing, especially for families with kids!! It's free, has indoor and outdoor sections, live animals, even a really nice little gift shop. Wish we had more time to spend there. Would love to see it at various times of year. Hope I get to go back!

While not every film appeals to everyone, I can't recommend the staff here enough. I have seen more movies that I would never venture to see after a short conversation with one of the staff, especially at the ticket window.
If you aren't sure whether to upgrade to the VIP seats, it's well worth the few dollar investment for the experience. Get there early to take advantage of ordering a drink from the bar or nearby eateries. Service with a smile, and seats big enough for two in the VIP seating.
Best yet -- I am unsure on their policy regarding young children -- but this venue seems to attract adults without babies or small children. A real grown-up experience for the movies. I love babies -- but watching a movie without a baby crying is really a pleasant experience.

This beautifully preserved mansion is right in the heart of Highlands Ranch. Open Tuesdays and Thursdays for tours, it is amazing to see . It also offers a beautiful setting for weddings and events. The grounds are lovely as well, and the views go on forever.

If going to Denver to shop, the Park Meadows Mall is a great place to go! Many clothes, jewelry and shoe stores for everyone! Several department stores too! The food court is very rustic and cabin feeling with a large stone fireplace in the middle! Many wonderful fast food places to eat while you sit by the fireplace! A lot of parking available! I would recommend this mall to everyone!

This place always has a wide selection of tasty brews to suit every palate. Rotating food trucks are always a good option at just about every micro brewery in the metro area. Nice outdoor patio & fun atmosphere. As mentioned in previous reviews here, watch out for dog hair ending up where it shouldn't be. Note to dog owners, not everyone likes to smell ur dog.

A local brewery.
they are so generous with their tastings! It cost $5 and we had a tasting before the tour and an even bigger one after the tour. Plan around having lunch or dinner at their great restaurant. In the summer it is a great place to play corn hole and take in the mountain views!

It was a beautifully designed building.The exhibits were inactive. You could read a questions to a character in the exhibit and they would reply by pushing a button. Our granddaughter, age 6, really liked the exhibits. Showing the exhibits by walking through and exploring the various ecosystems was a cleaver presentation. The Robot movie was the only movie showing in the later afternoon, it was ok. We will return and see the other movies, they looked really good! Enjoy, we had a fun day.
