Finally, we can get out and enjoy socializing again. In case you find yourself trapped with some rowdy young ‘uns, you may need some fun places for the kiddos to play. This list of indoor play areas around Denver should come in handy.
I’ve included all sorts of activities, some free and some with an admission fee. For some of the pricier attractions, I noted if there’s a Groupon available (and you should always check Groupon yourself for those not marked, as new Groupons pop up from time to time).
This list is by no means comprehensive as there are a gazillion spots across the metro area. A few spots have closed in the last year, others are still to re-open. Know of something that should be in the list? Just email email@example.com. [Read more…] about Indoor Play Areas For Kids Around Denver
