The children’s museum is great fun for the little ones who want to play and learn while adventuring in a new city. The complex just recently got a whopping $16 million expansion, with new materials, colors and designs more fitting for the modern child. It’s one of the most sought after spots in the town and has children clambering to get in line. One of the highlights is the enclosed three-story structure that provides children with the fun of climbing it with safety in mind. Children also have cooking classes available to them when they visit, and that’s sure to occupy their full attention.

Cooks Fresh Market
The best connoisseur’s congregation spot and by far the best deli in the downtown area. Great for families and reasonably priced, eating on the go has never been more delicious. The attention and purely quality of ingredients are obvious in all the items they sell. Their salads are famous throughout the city for the best selection of soft cheeses, and everyone loves their soft and fluffy pastries. Brilliant gourmet cooking with a handy selection of great picnicking spots in the park just around the corner for the family to sit and enjoy.
Gifts for kids
Hope Tank sells cool and fun gifts perfect for children who want a physical memory of their trip to Denver. Handcrafted jewelry, t-shirts, and many Colorado state souvenirs. All the items are created by local artists; however, the great thing about each sale is that some of the profit goes to helping nearby charities. Playful magnets, coloring books, key chains and bouncy balls are great fun for the kids and something they can keep to remind them of the fun they had in the metropolis Mile-High-City.
