Colorado Authors Series: Kyrie Collins: Playdate With Denver

When Collins moved to the Denver area, she had a two-year-old toddler and was six months pregnant. Immediately, she began searching for a resource of fun and interesting places to take her children. Most of the information she found was either for older children or focused on a specific area or activity. She wanted a wide array of destinations for every season of the year and for every budget. Since she couldn’t find one, she decided to create one. In the process, she learned a great deal about the city we all call home, made many good friends, discovered some true gems, and created the book Playdate With Denver.
