Day 1: We head west toward Colorado on a tour that is sure to be an adventure to remember for young and old alike. This afternoon we stop in Burlington, CO, to ride the Kit Carson County Carousel. Forty-six carved animals adorn the antique carousel which has been restored to its 1920’s condition. Following this nostalgic ride we continue to Denver where we spend the next three nights.
2: Our morning begins with a tour through Hammond’s Candy Factory. We find out firsthand how hard candy is made. Next we visit the Downtown Aquarium, boasting more than a million gallons of underwater exhibits. Following the aquarium we visit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, one of the largest natural history museums in the country, lunch included.
3: After a day of learning it is time for us to experience firsthand some of the wonders of the Colorado Mountains. The Georgetown Loop Railroad, pulled by a 1920’s locomotive engine takes us through silver mining country. Following the train ride we will have a pizza party lunch at Beau Jo’s in Idaho Springs. Next Clear Creek Rafting serves as our guide as we take a 1 1⁄2 hour beginners whitewater rafting trip down Clear Creek. Those who choose not to do the raft trip may go into historic Idaho Springs to browse on own.
4: With exciting Colorado adventures fresh in our mind we head back to Kansas.
