Has anyone taken their kids to Tiny Town?

If you hail from the Centennial State, you probably have several fond memories of visiting Tiny Town, Colorado. Opened in 1915, Tiny Town was originally a small attraction built by George Turner for his young daughter but quickly grew into the big – err, tiny – attraction we all know and love today. What are you waiting for? Grab your kids and check out this miniature Colorado amusement park that is made just for them:

After George Turner grew his “Turnerville” into an impressive miniature metropolis and opened it to the public in 1920, Tiny Town became a Denver destination that included more than 125 different buildings and businesses.
After Turner sold Tiny Town (due to its growing popularity and not enough time to manage it), the attraction was damaged by a series of natural disasters, beginning with two floods in 1929 and 1932 and then a massive fire in 1935.
Despite its many trials – including numerous closures and desertions – Tiny Town is still open today and better than ever, thanks to the Northern Colorado Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management taking it on as a civic project, which resulted in countless volunteers restoring the park and building its beloved railroad.
What can you expect to see when you visit today? There are hundreds of kid-sized buildings to walk around and explore…
…A huge playground…
…And, of course, the famous train rides, which run every 30 minutes and costs only $2 per person (with 2 and under free).
Tiny Town is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information – or to learn about special events – please visit their website.
