Since it’s Spring Break, and we’re not going anywhere, I promised my 4-year-old son some in-town adventures. Our first adventure was heading to lunch at the Perfect Landing at the Centennial Airport. We arrived early (11:30) for lunch, without reservations, and it quickly got crowded. We requested a window table and waited approximately 10 minutes for our table. The views of the mountains, city, and planes were awesome! In the hour we were there we probably watched 25 planes take off and land (I had had much lower expectations). My son thoroughly enjoyed it…
The food was great --the salads and burgers looked especially tasty--but overall, the restaurant was not particularly kid friendly. Unfortunately, they offer no high chairs or booster seats and there is only a verbal kid’s menu. That said, we had a terrific experience and we will definitely be back for dinner at sunset booked with a reservation.
Have you ever been surrounded by hundreds of magical and colorful butterflies? You can be at the Butterfly Pavilion!
The Butterfly Pavilion is located about 15 minutes North of Denver in Westminster, Colorado. It is a 30,000 square foot facility that is located on an 11 acre campus. The vision of the Butterfly Pavilion is to teach an appreciation of the environment and of all living thing. It is considered an invertebrate zoo and hosts over 5,000 animals.
There are five different exhibit areas (four indoor, and the garden and nature trail outside). The exhibit areas include: Crawl-a-See-Em, Water’s Edge, Wings of the Tropics, and Invertebrate World.
For our visit, my 4 year old son particularly enjoyed holding Rosie the resident tarantula and touching a starfish. We were also lucky enough to have a butterfly land on our clothing as we were exploring the tropical rainforest area.
What a great way to spend a Saturday!
