denver city guide- a travel guide for familiesIn preparation for our travels later this month, I have been scouring the internet for Hong Kong and Singapore City Guides, especially kid-friendly ones. And our recent Must-See travel list making has (unintentionally) generated quite the “When we go to Denver next Spring” to do list (which is pretty much a Denver City Guide for families with kids).

Since I’m right in the middle of using other people’s expertise to plan our family’s travel, I thought I’d share our Must See Denver list here in case any of your families are visiting this fabulous city anytime soon (be warned- the list isn’t exhaustive by any means- there are just so. many. great things to do and see in Denver… Also, if you are planning a grown-ups only visit, there is a great Denver City Guide here).
