The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery in Fort Collins, Colorado is more designed for kids than for adults. With a great variety of things kids can do and learn from, this is a must-see family destination. For adults, however, you may want to skip this in your travel itinerary.

The hands-on kiddy exhibits and activities may keep you and your kids inside the museum for half a day.

It has a section for beet farming and bicycles. Forth Collins is a haven for bicycle lovers as the city’s terrain is mostly flat. Also, the sugar beet industry put Forth Collins on the map, bringing people and prosperity to the region.
