Anderson Farms… a MUST SEE in Colorado!

photo copy 10

Yesterday we got to visit Anderson Farms in Erie, CO. The weather was nice and the drive wasn’t far but we didn’t know what to expect. My kids were so excited because there was promises of a Corn maze so we drove their right when they opened.

After getting our tickets and being greeting by some lovely folks, my kids ran straight over to the goat pen! They had goats you could pet and feed and chickens you can feed. My kids could have stayed in that area most of the time but I talked them into checking out the corn maze.

I am only 3 weeks out from having a c -section so I am not in the best shape of my life but I decided we were going to make a go of it. My 5 year old navigated the maze with ease (because if I am being honest, I had no clue where we were going!) There are 2 enormous mazes that we could have spent hours in! My little 2 year old stayed behind but my 4 and 5 year old had a blast in it but I also think it would be fun for older kids too!

This picture is inside the corn maze on top of one of the platforms. The view is simply amazing! I couldn’t have asked for better scenery or better company.

photo copy 8

This is a picture of the older kids/adult themed part of the park! It’s the “Terror in the Corn” attraction that is Colorado’s only Haunted Hayride and Ghost Town experience. This attractions starts at 7pm at night so it wasn’t up and running when we went but I hear it is a TON of fun!

Next up was a tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch. We fed some long horned cows along the way and headed to an enormous pumpkin patch where there were pumpkins of all shapes and colors!

And last but not least we headed to the country store to pursue all the goodies they had for sale, pay for our pumpkins and sit down for a nice lunch. Let me tell you, I got the corn chowder and it was delicious! I was so impressed they even had healthy options including wheat buns for my kids hot dogs and apple sauce!

I cannot say enough good things about Anderson Farms. We even plan to come back and have my oldest’s birthday party there in a couple of weeks!

So here my top 10 reasons to visit Anderson Farms:

1. One of a kind adventure…literally the most fun attraction we have been to in denver!

2. Extremely clean…I mean even the port-a potties smelled good!

3. Helpful and accommodating staff. They treated my kids like special guests!

4. My kids didn’t want to leave

5. It is stroller friendly so if you have small kids you can bring your strollers

6. Great price for all the fun things you get to do

7. Not to far of a drive

8. Everywhere you turn, there is something fun to do

9. HUGE pumpkin patch

10. A fun place to make great memories!

Go visit Dinosaur ridge in Morrison, CO…and get free admission to the trek through time exhibit!

IMG_8072IMG_8077 IMG_8078 IMG_8079IMG_8073IMG_8083 

Today I loaded up the kids and took a fun field trip to Morrison, CO to visit dinosaur ridge. Today’s weather could not have been more perfect weather for this little excursion.

We got to take a fun filled bus tour up the mountain, we checked out the indoor museum, went panning for gems and rocks in the sluice box and hung out with all the amazing painted dinosaurs around the property. (My little girl of course found the only pink dinosaur there!)

To say we had a good time would be an understatement! First up was the bus tour. We literally had the most amazing guide named Thor who was just as excited to give the tour as we were to take it! I even learned some good stuff while listening to the rich dinosaur history of colorado. We got to get out and check out real dinosaur footprints, and even climb on some of them!

The bus tour was about a 45 minute tour but it seemed like 1o minutes since we were having to much fun! I am considering having my son’s birthday party here because he did not want to leave and can’t wait to go back!

The Shuttle Bus is available for boarding hourly beginning at 10AM at the Visitor Center for 40-minute guided tours of Dinosaur Ridge.  The last bus leaves at approximately 4PM (May-October) and 3PM (November-April). During the peak season (June-August), shuttle buses run approximately every half hour from 10AM-4PM. The cost is only $5 per person with kids 3 and under free. This is the tour we did and loved it! I would get there early because once we left, it got packed!

Go here to find out about more tours, camps and all kinds of exciting events going on!

Plus all my readers can get free admission to the Trek through time exhibit. Go here for your coupon!

This is one of those things to do in Denver I cannot recommend highly enough! The staff was super helpful, answered all our questions and were genuinely happy to have us there.

If you live in Denver or even if you are vacationing here, this is a stop you don’t want to pass up!
