Elitch Gardens Theme Park in Denver, Colorado

... all of us and have already used them twice. The fall pass was only $10 more than a regular ticket, so they have already paid for themselves. I love theme parks. I always have and Elitch Gardens did not disappoint! The first day we went, we decided not to do the water park because we only went a couple of hours before it closed. There were plenty of rides to keep us well entertained without the water park. This last Saturday, we got there when they opened and made a day of it – waterpark...

... its shows, Wild West Train Adventure and much more.

100 Days of Summer: Visiting Gatorland

... which can be seen on the Swamp Walk. Billing themselves as the area’s “best half-day” attraction, Gatorland is a perfect break from the theme parks. However, given that it is central Florida, I highly recommend that you visit in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat and those sporadic showers the area is known for. What to See Once you’re inside in gates, you probably want to see some gators. If so, head to Alligator Island, the Breeding Marsh and Bird Rookery, or attend one...
