A walk through Denver Botanic Gardens is the perfect antidote to the craziness of the everyday. Particularly relaxing are the bonsai garden and the amazing water gardens.

The Denver Botanic Gardens is like paradise in the Rockies. A must see place with exotic plants that are well taken care of. In addition to the gardens are numerous education programs and activities.

Well worth the trip from the downtown area. We opted for the municipal shared bikes to get there. Had a quick breakfast in the cafe, and the walked the entire garden. Quite a bit to see, but doable in an hour or so.

What a great way to enjoy the holiday season. There are so many lights and some new displays. The pathway is clearly marked and the visitors are happy with a leisurely stroll. It took about an hour to make the loop. Ticketing online is the...More
