Idaho Botanical Garden
Located on the Old Idaho State Penitentiary grounds, these beautiful gardens are a must-see attraction. Well cared for all year long, the gardens are available for formal tours or for private browsing. Stretching over about 50 acres, the area offers 11 theme gardens including native plants, water displays and a nature trail. Winter brings the festive holiday lights. A popular venue for weddings. Closing timings may vary depending on the sunset.
I really liked the atmosphere of the place. It is an outdoor botanical garden with plants of all varieties. A great place to go if you are in from out of town and want to see some beautiful sites, if your a photographer and want to take some beautiful pictures or even if your a biology teacher that needs a place to take their students. In addition to the gardens there is also a variety of trails to walk and even some humming birds that may frequent the area. Highly recommended.
