Denver Firefighter Museum

Did you know there is a Denver Firefighters Museum downtown? It near Civic Center and is in a vintage Firehouse from days of old. Located at 13th and Tremont there is plenty of metered parking right outside their door.

It is filled with vintage items, photos, engines, ladder trucks, too much to name. So much to take in. Children love the hands on exhibits. They can dress up in fireman gear and hop aboard the engine. Upstairs are interactive stations all about fire safety. There is also a vintage locker room, captains room and restroom. So fun to look at it all.

Lakeside Amusement Park
Looking for a fun filled with rides, picnics and yummy treats? Head to Lakeside Amusement Park located at I-70 and Sheridan. Admission is unbelievably cheap! You can bring your own picnic in and the lines are short! It’s like turning back time too, a blast and tons of eye candy for any nostalgic person!

They have plenty of picnic tables and pavilions, it’s a great place for a birthday party. It’s right next to a lake too, gorgeous views with the Rockies as the backdrop.

Stopping to smell the roses, is not just a cliche.  It is a perfect way to unwind and enjoy nature’s beauty. Recently, we headed to Hudson Gardens in Littleton for a treat in the Rose Garden.

How does this sound? A haven where you and your family can eat, play, and learn together or apart.

The Village at Edgewater has opened in Edgewater and is sure to be a hit! Sure we have seen indoor playgrounds pop up but as far as food and childrens programs they lacked a completeness.

EAT
The village promises to deliver, healthy food, real food, not out of a microwave or food warmer.  They have breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The menu really looks amazing.

PLAY

The playarea is 1500 sq. ft!  The tables surround the play area, allowing parents to eat and chat while their children play.

LEARN

They will be offering Music, Art, and COOKING Classes!  You can take them with or without your kiddos.

Friday nights is Family Night featuring different entrees every week!

You can purchase monthly memberships or pay as you go.

The Village at Edgewater is located at 5700 W. 25th (at Fenton)

Hudson Holiday

Hudson Holiday

Museum of Outdoor Arts and Hudson Gardens have teamed up once again to present the second annual installation of the award-winning holiday lighting show, Hudson Holiday.

Voted “Best Holiday Lighting” by Denver’s Westword Magazine

Hudson Holiday is an annual lighting extravaganza designed by Museum of Outdoor Arts and presented in collaboration with The Hudson Gardens and Event Center.

The 2009 inaugural show featured 15 acres of state of the art lighting that illuminated and transformed the gardens into an enchanted winter wonderland. With special attractions such as an animal parade, a flock of electric sheep with ever-changing algorithm projections, a winter garden railroad with jeweled cars, and a synchronized and choreographed light show atop the craziest holiday house around, Hudson Holiday is not your typical holiday light show.  They even have a car decorated with lights it is so cool!
