What is there to do in your area? What do you do for activities in and around your town? It could be anything...shopping, malls, outdoor sports, clubs, restaurants...anything worth mentioning... Out here in Colorado we have real good recreation centers for the family. The Boulder Dinner Theater is awesome! I highly recommend it. Pearl St. Mall in Boulder, 16th St. Mall in Denver. They are both great outdoor malls with good shopping and dining. Main St. in Longmont is good. It has different, vintage, eclectic shops and new ones too, and also good dining. Mostly mom/pop dining which is nice, kind of gives an old town feel....The Denver Zoo, Museum, and Ocean Journey are great families...The Museum has awesome exhibits, we saw the infamous Body World 2 there, it was incredible....

What isn't there to do in my area would be a better question. I live in a very populated area. There are over 30 museums in a 45 minute drive radius. There are countless art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops, concert venues, playhouses, rec centers, about 30 malls within a 30 minute drive radius, a large zoo, Busch Gardens theme park, tons of free standing shops, restuarants, hockey, baseball, & football teams, arena football,tons of parks... the list goes on and on. There is a Starbucks on every other corner - well not really, but it seems that way.

This is a nice low key topic...thank you for posting it. I live in rural Minnesota. We have the lakes, rivers, swamps...LOL! In summers we fish, fall we hunt, winter we have ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, year round we have horseback riding, winter sleighs, summer wagons... We only have two large cities in MN, Minneapolis and St. Paul and a couple smaller ones, Duluth on Lake Superior being one. There is shopping for those who enjoy it, theatre for those who wish to attend, sports events, music and usually family fun. I mostly am responding to this post though to say hi to the member(s) from the Corn Patch from one from the Land of Lakes.

Well, in my town that's kind of a joke. The largest event I've attended in the 3 months I've been here was getting a flu shot at the Senior Citizen's center. We can also go to the post office to pick up our mail, and on Thursday evenings we can go to the local eatery for homemade liver and onions. End of story. Of course, we're only 10 minutes from a larger town where we can do most of our shopping. And 40 minutes away is Des Moines. Pretty much anything you could want is there including nice malls and wonderful restaurants. There are concerts and theater company presentations. I like the huge Planned Parenthood Book Sale every year in September. The Blank Park Zoo is there and so is a large Botanical Center. Since Des Moines is Iowa's largest city, there are all the amenities there that anyone could want. We're also within a few hour drive to the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Kansas City, and Chicago.

I live in a small town. Locally theres not a heck of a lot to do. We have a provincial park for camping with a lake so you can fish, do water sports, camp. Theres a golf course, in the summer we have 5 restaurants, 4 shops for groceries/hardware. Hiking trails, people can ATV or walk. Canada Day activities and farmers market. The winter time...We have 2 restaurants, the same number of shops. The park and golf course are closed but you can snowmobile or hunt, skating, curling, carol festival , hobby fairs. During the school year there are movies put on by the school band and other activities through the school open to the public, some clubs.

baywalk sunset - baywalk sunset
we live in the city and there so many malls around here, you'll just have to pick where you want to go. there's also a bay but it's not near and you've got to travel by car at about 30 minutes. it's fun being there so much people exercising every morning, jogging, biking, boating, differetn stuffs. and more families just want to relax than being in a mall:)

Well, all of this sounds Fun, as I have always wanted to visit Denver. I hear it is an exciting place. I live in the Seattle, WA area, and there is always plenty to do here to keep a person busy. There is 2 Zoos here in this area, the Seattle Center with the Space Needle, the mountains all within driving distance, many ski areas, EMP aka Experience Music project to hear some Great music like Jimmy Hendrix, a professional Baseball, Basketball, and Football team, and much more. If you ever come here to visit, and are bored, it would be your own fault for sure.

I live in a town where you can do almost nothing. Shopping (except tha super market) is limited, and the fun is there only the summer. We have to visit near cities to have everything done.
