Denver Deal: Colorado Day, WaterWorld’s Birthday, Free Days and More

Denver Deal: Colorado Day, WaterWorld’s Birthday, Free Days and More

I remember back-to-school shopping with my mom as a kid. It would usually involve a drive down to the city (we lived in Steamboat – so Denver was the BIG City). We would place clothes on layaway and be trying on jeans in the middle of summer. My mom would always tell us that she didn’t want to spend her whole “wad” on clothes – what happens if the ones we pick out are not the popular styles? Then she wouldn’t have any more money to spend on a new sweater (or whatever). So she would buy us some basics and then we would drive back down in September or October to “fill in the gaps.” I think of it now – and realize what she was doing was spreading her spend out a bit – but allowing us to have a new outfit for the first day. Do you send your kids to school with a new outfit on the first day? 

FREE DAYS
There are a couple of free days this week. Saturday, August 2 the Denver Art Museum as well as the Denver Firefighter’s Museum are free.

Happy Colorado Day

The building is amazing. And you HAVE to check out the interactive map of Colorado on the floor! Also to celebrate our birthday (as a state – but also my birth month. Yes, I know I’m really a Colorado Girl), all 42 state parks will have free entrance on Colorado Day.
