Visiting Info

Flying in? Closest airport is DEN (Denver International Airport)

If you hope to explore while in Colorado we recommend driving in or getting a rental car.

For hotels, we recommend Fairfield Inn at Southlands Shopping center for location, cost, and convenience. It is nearby Walmart, Michael’s, restaurants and shopping. It is also the most direct drive to Curious Farms Market, and not far from the airport.

A new hotel is opening in Bennett, Colorado. It is slightly closer / more direct. However, there are fewer options for shopping/dining and we are unsure if the hotel will be open by May!


Colorado could be rainy, chilly, or very warm in May. Be prepared by packing comfortable layers.

Curious Farms Market is situated on 40 acres of dry prairie. Please consider bringing closed toe comfortable shoes for your visit.
