No visit to the Denver area would be complete without a stop at Tiny Town. Since 1915, Tiny Town, a fun village of miniature buildings, has been in existence in one form or another. Over the years, financial ruin, and natural disasters have taken their toll, but Tiny Town has always resurrected itself.
Tiny Town has something for everyone: tiny buildings, some exact scale replicas of actual buildings with intricate details such as furniture, curtains in the windows, and tiny shingles. Others are just for fun – a windmill and a jail big enough for children, and very flexible adults, to get inside. There is a train ride that goes through the whole town, that fortunately is real people size. The caboose is reserved for children only. A modern-day playground waits at the far end of town, for children tired of peering into the windows of the little buildings. And a picturesque brook runs through it all.
Just like Camelot, rain is not allowed in Tiny Town. Our visit was cut short when the big cold drops began to fall, as Tiny Town pulled in the sidewalks and shut down early for the day. But that just leaves the rest of it for us to explore on another visit.
