Our girls grew up listening to Adventures in Odyssey so when we moved to the Springs Focus on the Family was a priority on our list of things to do (even though our kids are in their 20's)! They were not disappointed! Whit's End (set up in the basement of Focus on the Family) is a treasure trove of fun... More

Located just off I-25, the Focus on the Family "homeland" is so interesting for the entire family. Browse the bookstore for wonderful and spiritually inspiring items. Visit Adventures in Odyssey...downstairs ...for a feast for the senses and lots of 'kid' fun...although adults will enjoy it too...and visit the soda shop!

It is a very nice place for kids with young families. Not much for older kids to do. There is a three story slide, exploring area and cute cafe. The bookstore is mostly books with a few christian gifts.

My seven year old LOVED visiting here! You can stay for hours... kids are safe running around by themselves while I sat in the cafe and read a book. Food is cheap and yummy. Play area is awesome.

Prior to my visit with family here, I was not that familiar but very impressive. This organization is doing a lot for the family.

Love this family-oriented spot. I babysit a little girl and she loves going there. The restaurant is good for kids. It has a walk-up counter (soda shoppe style) and the prices are good. The entire basement is kid-oriented (Christian organization) and there is a lot to do and see.

A great place to take your little ones with much to do. Children will enjoy the great big slide to many different activities. A wholesome place for family and children that is fun.

This is a fun hidden treasure! Children can explore, play, and use their imagination! From climbing and sliding, to putting on a puppet show. All this in a safe family friendly environment. And shopping at the bookstore at the end of the trip is always a treat!

I met a mom's group / playdate group here and was so surprised by how large this place is - and different! They have things to keep little ones busy for hours - and it's safe! There are rooms for toddlers with multiple things to climb on, puppet shows, a stage with dress up clothes, a radio station that the... More
