Where can families celebrating members of all ages, infancy to second childhood all dwell together at the same table and actually enjoy themselves that doesn’t include cheesy (and sometimes scary) life-size toys or golden arches? Here are just a few ideas for those who decide the Denver area is a great place to get together.
White Fence Farm
Located at 6263 West Jewell Avenue in Lakewood, the original Colorado location is the best family hangout around. With a petting zoo, carriage rides, a giant treehouse and candy store, it’s easy to keep the family entertained while there for a family style dinner. Specializing in fried chicken dinners with all the trimmings, and even some unique appetizers, White Fence Farm keeps those grown-ups happy, too. Speaking of grow-ups, there’s also a dance floor and live music. J Something for everyone in the family!
Locals might roll their eyes if their out-of-town guests ask to go there. Most of us remember visiting it as kids, and it’s just part of where we live. We forget that people who come from other cities haven’t seen it, and that it’s a really cool restaurant for visitors to experience! Mexican food, cliff divers, and Black Bart’s cave make this an entertaining restaurant for the entire family. It is also located in Lakewood at 6715 W. Colfax Ave.
Beau Jo’s Pizza
Not just any pizza, Colorado Mountain Pizza. The original location is in Colorado’s own Idaho Springs, giving families the opportunity to enjoy the Colorado mountain experience while enjoying a pizza that is loaded with toppings and a crust that can be filled with honey. Thirty miles west of Denver, this is a great way to combine a day of mountain fun with the ability to delight the taste buds. There are locations elsewhere across the state, but there’s nothing like the original located at 1517 Miner St, Idaho Springs, CO.
Well, there are three places that are not only family friendly, but family fun. Eat, be merry, and let those kids enjoy a real restaurant experience—Colorado Style! Bon Appetite!
