Father’s Day Pick: Metro-Denver’s Guide to Everything for Dad and Kids

The Perfect Gift for Father’s Day: Wonderdads

The Metro-Denver’s Guide to Everything for Dad and Kids

I was a bit skeptical when I got Wonderdads in the mail. I always thought of myself as the kid guru when it comes to activities, where to shop, eat and play. Well, this compilation of ideas is giving me a run for my money! The book is fantastic. The contributors nailed so many of my favorites and even introduced me to some shops and restaurants I have not yet tried. This truly is an awesome gift for dad this Father’s Day.

First of all, the book even has an additional social media option for tech-savvy dads. You can get free access for one year on your iPhone, Blackberry or Andriod with free updates and more, pretty cool! Second, the book is divided into such easy to search through sections; any dad can navigate this guide.

The chapters cover all the basics and pick out highlights such as “top dad/child . . .things to do in Denver, restaurants in Denver, activities in Denver, outdoor parks & recreation in Denver, things to do on a rainy day, things to do on a hot day, full-day activities, splurges and most memorable.” Seriously, this book has got dad covered!

But, there’s more . . oodles of stores, restaurants, parks and activities, and a chapter dedicated to unique adventures that is pretty clever. Wonderdads covers the entire Metro area with events such as Denver Arts Week, El Dia de los Muertos, A Chocolate Affair, Cheeseman Park Independence Day Kids Parade, Dunk your Dad & Chili Contest and many more.

If dad pages through this book and can’t find an activity that matches the weather, location and mood of his children, then something is awry. The guide was written with extreme thought and care. I really can’t think of a better gift for dad on Father’s Day! Visit for more information on the book, the authors and the Wonderdad series. There are numerous other titles out there that cover additional cities. You can purchase the book directly off the website as well.

Happy Father’s Day!

  1. Looks very interesting but is it just me or does the link to Wonderdads not work? There’s a 404 (Page Not Found) Error.

  2. I went there too, and I get the same error. Are they not in Denver?
