The family vacation is the most anticipated event of the year, but can be the most frightening one as well, as you try to find activities that appeal to all ages. Parents love museum visits and pub nights, but kids can wreak havoc in a museum and should not be included in a pub night. Kids would love to play video games and swim all day long, something parents can enjoy only in limited amounts! But when your journey brings you to the family-friendly town of Winter Park and features a stay in one of our Winter Park Escapes family getaways, this guide will help you fill your vacation hours with excitement and fun things to do with kids in Winter Park that EVERYONE will love!
Day 1: Giddy-Up!
What do you do when you want to see the countryside, but you don’t think your 8-year-old will enjoy a hike? You make it more exciting with a horseback ride! Snow Mountain Stables offers sleigh rides in the winter, wagon rides, and guided trail rides through the rugged beauty of the Colorado countryside! Choose between a 1- or 2-hour ride through the Rocky Mountains and watch your children’s eyes light up with excitement as you become the hero for the day!
Day 2: Family Fun Day
Sometimes a day of play is all you need to get rid of grumpy feelings, even on vacation, and nothing cheers up your family faster than a visit to the Foundry Cinema & Bowl during your Winter Park getaway! Offering a bowling alley, video arcade, and a movie theater that allows you to eat (and drink) during the show, this one-stop establishment of fun and food may end up being one of your favorite Winter Park, Colorado activities!
Day 3: For Winter Visits Only
The problem with skiing is that parents and children are often separated as the kids take lessons and the parents head off to the scarier slopes alone. Tubing, however, is a sport that everyone can do together, and the Fraser Tubing Hill is the best spot in town to do so! Our Winter Park Escapes rental includes one free 60-minute adult tube rental for every day of your stay, so feel free to come back again and again!
Day 4: Home Is Where the Fun Begins!
On those days when you don’t feel like getting out of your jammies, stay “home” and play games, bake cookies, and binge watch your favorite kids’ movies in comfort and style! Our Winter Park Escapes family homes are destined to be the highlight of your Colorado adventures—reserve yours today!
