Not the best place to enjoy the sun as a couple or with adults. Go hike, bike or do something else, but this is just as ideal for families as Disney World. Its also just as expensive, but at least there are no crowds.

We went here specifically for the alpine garden, but had so much fun wandering through the park, as it has something for everyone: playing fields, a playground for kids, bridges, a stream nearby, etc. Just a wonderful setting in a wonderful town. Free parking.
