Worth the expense and lines...we go every year, never a disapointment. The hot apple cider, the snow on the ground, and the dazzling light show is amazing!

There is a lot to see and learn here. Be prepared to walk a lot and get lost some times. Some areas are closed with no apparent reason and there is a lot of weeds, too. Very educational and relaxing, too.

I hadn't been to the Botanic Gardens for many years and was pleasantly surprised by the expansion of the gardens. We had the perfect early evening spring stroll. We were staying downtown, and rode the bus both ways with no problem. Highly recommend!

Yes; here in Denver is a world class botanical gardens for its climate! The gardens are well laid-out with several key themes and plenty of places to pause for a coffee. I've now visited spring, mid-summer and mid-winter: delightful every time.

It was Mothers Day so these gardens were extremely busy but the gardens are so well planned that they can accommodate the crowds and some parts are quieter. The plants and flowers are beautiful.
