One day in Ft Collins with a 5 and 1 year old

Jump to last reply

I will be in Fort Collins for 1 day with my 5 year old and 18 month old in late September. The rest of the trip we'll be in Estes Park (a week) and Boulder (a few days). What do you recommend for a fun day with 2 little ones?

I'll have a car, but don't want to drive out of town since we'll already be driving up from Estes for the day. (We're coming for my husband's work, and he needs to go to Ft Collins for one day. Since we only have 1 rental car, we'll all be going to Ft Collins rather than me attempting to spend a day in Rocky Mt National Park without a car.)

I looked at the Discovery Museum, but saw it had mixed reviews. Generally, my older child loves science museums so I'm still considering this option.

I like seeing college campuses, so am also thinking of visiting CSU and letting the kids run around. I'm sure there are good and cheap places for lunch near a campus, and we could have a picnic on the lawn there.

Other ideas? We'll be there from about 9 am til 3 pm, more or less.

Thanks!
