Okay you Colorado mama's!

We are heading there Thursday to Saturday. How is the Denver zoo? Worth it? Also anyone live in Ft Collins maybe? That's where we are going but we are going to the zoo before we drive there. Any other suggestions on things to do?

  • The new elephant exhbit at the zoo is spectacular. You can get right up close to the animals and see how big they are. The zoo also has a nice old-fashioned carousel. Right close to the zoo there's the Museum of Science and Nature, the Ocean Journey Aquarium, the Children's Museum, and the Butterfly Pavilion. You could spend a whole day at each and not see everything.

    My sister lived in Fort Collins when she went to college, but I'm not really sure what all there is to do there. Boulder has a lot of unique little bookstores and toy shops, and ethnic restaurants. Or you could come on over, I'm about halfway between Denver and Fort Collins! Have fun!

  • Boulder is a really cool town with a nice outdoor mall area.

    I lived in CO Springs for 7 years. Great state!

    New Belgium Brewery is in Ft. Collins and they have a tasting room.  I doubt it's kid friendly.

  • I'm not so familiar with Ft. Collins. It was a nice place but we just don't get up there too often.

    Boulder is an awesome place. The Pearl Street Mall is a pedestrian mall with lots of food and shops. Chatauqua is gorgeous if you like hiking.

    The Denver Zoo is nice. We don't go too often now as the kids are older. There is a new Asian elephant exhibit.

    You could just drop by my place for a couple of hours.
