We thought this would be a quick drive through tour. However, it didn't take long for us to realize we needed more time to explore the numerous paved and dirt trails. The scenery is stunning!! Our teenage boys loved it. A photographers dream. The smooth...More

The Garden of the Gods is a beautiful place that everyone should take the time to see! There is a circle loop drive that you don't want to miss.

If you have ever wondered why they named these structures The Garden of The Gods it is because you haven’t seen these formations. Be sure to bring your camera. Every change of light brings a new view.

This is our second trip to the Garden of the gods and it was great. The visitor center was a new stop for us but it was very informative. We loved walking around and taking pictures of this natural wonder.
