Every Labor Day weekend, A Taste of Colorado, a huge event with food, games, art and other vendors, is fun for the whole family. A great end-of-summer celebration in the Mile High City.
The Georgetown Loop Railroad that departs from either Devil's Gate Station or Silver Plume Depot is a fun tourist attraction for the whole family. It traces a restored mining route, can include a mine tour and panning for gold or silver, and uses historic, restored steam locomotives. At a moderate price, it's a good daytrip from Denver, Colorado, into the Rockies.
