Things to do for spring break in Colorado

Gallery by: OutThere Colorado
Parents love and hate Spring Break. On the one hand, you get a whole week to spend time with your kids, but you also get a whole week to spend time with your kids. The best thing to do is fill your days with awesome activities, and when it comes to that, Colorado has you covered.

Colorado’s National Parks (Just About Anywhere, Colorado)

Of course, any list of spring break activities wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our amazing national parks. Spring break is the perfect time to avoid the summer rush while still taking in everything the parks have to offer.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

Cheyenne Mountain Resort (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

Not looking to face plant in the snow? No worries—No-School-Kids-Rule has you covered. This awesome program includes movie nights, games, fancy campfire dinners, treks, and visits to the country’s only mountain zoo.

Denver Art Museum

Denver Art Museum (Denver, Colorado)

School might be out, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. If you want to take your kids on an educational trip that they’ll love (once they get past the word “museum”), here’s the perfect solution. This is of the best and most interactive art museums we’ve found, and we couldn’t love it more.

Nighttime Bike Tours

Nighttime Bike Tours (Winter Park, Colorado)

If you’re a fan of the less conventional vacation, you can’t miss out on Night Bike Tours. It’s the coolest combination of skiing and mountain biking, and will leave you equal parts exhausted and amazed.


YMCA of the Rockies (Estes Park / Granby, Colorado)

No, we’re not talking about the song (and we’re not telling you to hit the treadmills either). These two locations offer our favorite family actives in all of Colorado. Leave out the stress of planning your spring break and enjoy tubing, ice skating, sleigh rides, horseback riding, and more all in one location.


Sunlight Mountain Resort

Sunlight Mountain Resort (Glenwood Springs, Colorado)

If you aren’t looking to bask in the sun this spring, you can’t go wrong with Sunlight Mountain’s Ski-Swim-Stay package. Kids under twelve ski for free, and when you’ve had enough of the cold the whole family can go enjoy the nearby hot springs.
