Tiny Town, which is located in Morrison, Colorado, in the foothills just west of Denver, is one of the most charming attractions in Colorado. A miniature steam engine transports visitors through a little town with more than 90 buildings (Victorian houses, shops, a schoolhouse, a firehouse, and more). Some of the buildings are decked out with doll-sized furniture and furnishings.
All of Tiny Town is meticulously built to 1/6 scale, which means that toddlers can climb inside the buildings and peer out. A playground, shady picnic area, and gift shop are all on the grounds of Tiny Town. Memorial Day through Labor Day, Tiny Town is open seven days a week
