Happy summer everyone! There are so many amazing opportunities for kid-friendly and family-friendly fun in the Denver area, but you don’t have to go far at all for some of the best attractions! There are lots of places to take your kids for some extra fun this summer right here in our very own Aurora. To help our young patients and their families have the best summer ever, we’ve put together this list of some of the most popular family fun destinations in Aurora!
Food Truck Rodeo
Aurora residents are invited to come out and enjoy delicious food from local food trucks on the first Friday of every month from May to November at the Aurora Municipal Center. Each Food Truck Rodeo offers a different food truck lineup, so there will always be something new to try! Grab your family and get ready to enjoy a wide array of foods ranging from light, healthy options to cheesy food truck classics.
Is your child interested in arts and crafts or fashion? Consider signing them up for a sewing class series! Colorado Fabrics, located right here in Aurora, offers kids’ sewing classes all summer. These classes offer your child the opportunity to get creative and learn an important skill. Check out their website to see if any of their options fit into your family’s schedule!
With all of the amazing summer flicks that come out every year and the excellent air conditioning, the movie theater is a classic summer option for kids. For an extra special movie experience, take your family to see a film at Movie Tavern by Marcus! Movie Tavern is a great date spot because you can enjoy a meal AND a movie at the same time, but they also have lots of kid-friendly events, movies, and food options. Your kids will love it!
If you’ve got an active kid on your hands, take them to Jumpoline Park! Jumpoline Park is a family fun center featuring innovative trampolines and endless fun for all ages. They offer a great opportunity for you to let your kids burn off some energy, but parents are also encouraged to jump and get some fun and exercise in their day! You can bring your family in during free play hours, or plan a birthday party there!
Another great option for energetic kids here in Aurora is Lava Island! Lava Island offers active play, imaginative exploration, education, value, family time, quality food, and time away from screens and devices. The best part? The whole facility is tropical themed, so your family will feel like they’re on a mini summer vacation! The indoor park filled with trampolines, climbing walls, ladders, slides, and mazes. Sounds like fun!
With so much to do, it can be easy to forget to take a break. Remember to hydrate regularly while you’re out and about! It’s good for your body and your teeth. If you and your family are craving something chilly and sweet, check out these healthy summer treat swaps from Bluebell Family Dental! They’re very refreshing and they won’t damage your teeth!
We hope this list helps you add a little extra fun into your summer before the kids go back to school. Don’t forget to schedule your child’s next pediatric dental appointment with us before their schedule fills up again in the fall!
