Have Fun with the Whole Family
Visit the nationally famous Denver Zoo and see everything from zebras to polar bears to komodo dragons to Siberian tigers. Many of their more than 4,000 animals are endangered, so teach your child about preservation and the duty of conservation. On the other hand, if your child is enthusiastic about insects, you can have them explore the Butterfly Pavilion, which houses many species of arachnids, butterflies, and other creepy-crawly things. But sometimes, children are fascinated with creatures that have long since gone extinct. In that case, take them to Dinosaur Ridge, where they can find bones and track footprints of creatures that have been gone for many thousands of years. Families with teenagers could have a lot of fun on the rides at Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park, whereas smaller children would enjoy the Children's Museum of Denver.
