Where to Find Family Fun

Category:Where To...

The Mile High City is full of kid-friendly dining, shopping and fun, and if you visit Cherry Creek North, it's all within walking distance. Plus, family attractions like Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Zoo and Denver Museum of Nature & Science are all less than 3 miles away. So grab the kids and plan a Denver trip full of memories all ages can appreciate.

Family Weekend Itinerary

Here's your Denver family day itinerary with lots of fun things to do at local Cherry Creek North businesses.

Start your day with an authentic Parisian crepe (with plenty of fun and kid-friendly topping choices) from Crepes n' Crepes, a longtime Cherry Creek North staple. In a hurry? The Pasty Republic has delicious handheld pasties (think: savory baked pastries) that will fill you and the kiddos up for the day ahead.

You don't have to go far from Cherry Creek North to explore some of Denver's favorite cultural institutions. All of these are just a 5 minute car ride or less away: Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Zoo and Denver Botanic Gardens. If you're staying at one of our four hotels, they'll be happy to arrange a ride for you!

Get something special to remember your visit and support local artisans (and small businesses) at the same time! Show of Hands has a great selection of Colorado hats and art, as well as plush toys and "punny" gifts for all ages. Artisan Center has a dedicated baby and kids section full of sweet onesies, puzzles and books, many of which are sourced from local makers.

Grab a bite for lunch at  True Food Kitchen, which has a large patio with plenty of room for the whole family. Or take in rooftop Rocky Mountain views (with a kid-approved menu) at Del Frisco's Grille.

After a full day of exploring, swing by The Hermitage Bookshop and have the helpful staff recommend their favorite children's books to read before the kids catch some afternoon zzz's.

Family-friendly dinner options are abundant around here, but Blue Island Oyster Bar has something for the whole family: seafood (including lobster, oysters, mussels, clams and more) is flown in fresh daily from the East Coast, for the adults; tacos, sliders, shoestring fries and lobster mac & cheese for the younger ones. Dig in to a family-style Chinese dinner at Little Ollie's, or go crazy with burger customization options at Bad Daddy's Burger Bar.
