Introducing 'Spousetivities': Non-numismatic excursions for the non-collector to enjoy

The ANA has arranged some great excursions for spouses and other family members who aren't enrolled at Summer Seminar to enjoy while their favorite numismatist is in class.

This is a great opportunity to explore the Colorado Springs and Denver areas. All of the activities are a la carte. There's so much to choose from: shopping, sightseeing, museums and more. Transportation and admission fees are included in the prices. There will be a maximum of 12 people in the group. All of the activities were created with small groups in mind so spouses can easily get to know each other.

"We want to recognize the family members who are here supporting their numismatists. These activities are a chance for ANA spouses to connect with each other while their family members are in class," said Amber Bradish, ANA education assistant.

Many of the activities are opportunities to see something unique to the state. You can have lunch at the historic and charming Cliff House in Manitou Springs and/or have tea in the remarkable Glen Eyrie Castle. The excursions are designed to appeal to all ages and interests.
