    A must see when you're in Denver! Bring yourself some snacks to have while you're walking and DO NOT buy anything from that gift shop (you can get the exact same things outside!). I loved the place.

    A DBG membership pays for itself in 5 visits. Do yourself a favor and become a member. That way, you won't have to pay if you just want to come to the gardens for a walk or to work (free WIFI).
