[Vintage Tiny Town photo circa 1960s-1970s. Photo: Beatnik Photos] Tiny Town is one of Colorado’s most unusual attractions, tucked away in the foothills just west of Denver off Highway 285. It’s a whole mini village full of kid sized buildings, a real railroad and playground.
The tiny resort features more than 100 1/6 scale buildings, along with a 15 inch gauge miniature railway. There’s even a scale model of Coney Island Boardwalk, a giant hot dog stand located southwest on Highway 285 in Bailey. It’s open late spring through summer, beginning in May on Saturdays and Sundays. Then welcoming guests daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day. After Labor Day it continues operation on weekends in September, weather pending, before closing for the season.
In addition the mini village and train ride, Tiny Town features plenty of grassy areas and pine trees for a shaded picnic lunch, or a bite to eat from the snack bar. You’re welcome to bring your own picnic basket full of food. There are picnic tables available, first-come, first serve. However, no barbecues, open flames or glass bottles are permitted.
