Family Friendly Activities in Frisco, CO
Posted by: admin July 16th, 2015
Whether you’re just making a stop on your way to one of Colorado’s other mountain destinations or making it your final destination, Frisco, Colorado is a wonderful spot with a plethora of family-friendly activities to take part in. While this historic town only has a radius of one mile, it makes up for its small size with large amounts of fun. Large amounts of fun the entire family can enjoy.
Frisco Historic Park & Museum
Children and adults can all find something to enjoy at the Frisco Historic Park & Museum which takes visitors back in time to the late 19th and 20th century in the Mountain West. Several of Frisco’s historic buildings have been relocated to the park, but the original schoolhouse helps to connect the past, present and future to the world around you. Explore a log chapel and a number of log homes, view various historical displays or take part in a free walking tour all in the matter of hours. As an added bonus, the kiddos can imagine life in the mountains across the past centuries by burning off some energy running between the separately standing structures that reside in the park. Admission is free and the museum is self-guided so bring your thinking hats to take you back centuries.
Peak One Disc Golf Course
Part of the Frisco Adventure Park, the 18-hole Peak One Disc Golf Course is open to the public free of charge, seven days a week from 6am to 10pm. Just like the traditional sport of golf, disc golf utilizes a Frisbee or “disc” to hit the markers rather than holes. Because this is a less serious and more entertaining version of golf, this is one activity that the entire family can enjoy. Just make sure to bring your own discs that can be purchased at most sporting goods stores in Frisco.
Frisco Adventure Park
During the winter, the Frisco Adventure Park offers cross-country skiing, tubing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, but in the summer months the park transforms into a summertime paradise. The park includes disc golf (see above), skateboarding at the skate park, biking at the bike park, ball fields and a day lodge. But, if you’re not into those activities, the peninsula also includes miles of shoreline for both hiking and biking on trails on forest service land.
Chuckwagon Dinner and Wild West Show
Experience the west like it once was with a wagon ride, filling meal and some knee-slapping cowboy entertainment that will keep the whole family entertained. Your experience starts with a draft mule-team-drawn wagon ride that takes you to a camp site through beautiful Rocky Mountain scenery. Before dinner, work up your appetite in the game corral with games such as cornhole toss, cowboy golf, horseshoes and even practice your roping skills. The barbecue dinner is a three-course meal of hearty, home-cooked food, including dessert. Once your belly is full, lay back and enjoy the silly antics of the dinnertime Wild West Performance. But don’t relax too much as you might find yourself or family members being drawn into the onstage entertainment.
