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.
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.
