I live in beautiful and sunny Boulder, Colorado. One of the first topics when I meet new moms {after the customary questions of how old our kiddos are, and exchanging of basic life stats} is what are your favorite places to go with the kiddo in tow? Because being at home with a baby at any age is not easy so I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite places to visit to see the sights or to just get out of the house to preserve some sanity by the end of the day. And you’ll make some great memories along the way!

I’ve broken each place/activity into age groups of when I think is the earliest age to introduce them. This is just my opinion.
