Our Fifty Nifty fun in the USA continues with a trip to Tiny Town in Morrison, CO. Tiny Town was actually en route back from Breckenridge to Denver for our flight home so I scheduled an hour to visit this cute little place to give my own tiny one some time to run off some energy before the flight home.
Tiny Town is located about twenty minutes outside of Denver. Tiny Town is a town comprised of miniature buildings and homes roughly the size of a three year old with intricate details. It was adorable! Tiny Town also has miniature steam engines that you can ride on! We picked that first to ensure we got to ride. There’s stroller parking! The trains run about every half hour and take you on a tour around the town. You even get to see the original even smaller houses on the property that were built back in 1920.
We rode the train with our hands in the air! We decided to tour the grounds on our own for the remainder of the time we had. We spied in buildings and climbed into some too. Row had a blast and pretty much refused to leave. Apparently she wasn’t feeling pictures.
There was also a large playground-we avoided because of the not wanting to leave factor. A cute eatery with old timey umbrella tables and fun ice cream and of course a gift store. You can also bring a sack lunch and eat at the picnic tables under the shade. Plenty of free parking too, oh and super affordable. Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for kids and then train rides are an additional $2. You can stay as long as you like and they often run special events. Oh and they host birthday parties how fun!
Tiny Town is also not only famous for being around forever but apparently it’s the scene of Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining…. A fun little stop on your way to Denver.
