Hi Adrienne,

http://www.denverkids.com is a great site. There are also some great museums as people have mentioned below. How old are your kiddos? I have a 7 year old and 18 month old so if you want to have company, let me know. We do fun stuff all of the time.

Natural History and Science Museum, Art museum, Confluence park and REI are fun (climbing wall inside REI), if it's summer time GO RAFTING. you just can't beat it. Echo Canyon is probably the best for families. Lots of hiking, biking, etc.. all very close. Sounds weird but go on one of the Brewery tours. Elich Gardens is right down town and WaterWorld is the biggest water park in the US I think.

Hi Adrienne, Denver has so many great things for kids to do. My favorites(or my kids favorites :) ) have been the Children's Museum and the Denver Aquarium (they are nearly next door to each other). The link in the web reference box will take you to a site that will give you more ideas as well as coupons. All the best!

Probably the best source is http://www.denverchamber.org; but you can also try http://www.westword.com; or get a guide book if you are a AAA member. Some of our more popular attractions include the zoo, museum of science and nature (one of the best in the country) the mint, Red Rocks, several close-in mountain parks, Water World; just kind of depends on how long you will be here and how old your kids are.
