Indoor play centers are some of our favorite things to do over the summer. Since weather can be unpredictable (hello afternoon thunderstorms) it’s a great way to get the kids out of the house and burning off all their energy. Colorado summers are hot, which makes outdoor play equipment a challenge, but we also get afternoon thunderstorms which can come on quickly. So it can make visiting the park a challenge some days. Let’s not get started on all the sunblock I need so I don’t turn into a lobster. So when it comes to enjoying summer, indoors are our favorite thing.
A lot of places have summer passes which come in handy for getting out of the house. When you have multiple kids it can get pricey paying for all of those admission fees and this is why I love the summer passes. You pay one fee and get a pass to that lets you visit all summer long.
