Denver Botanic Gardens

It's like something out of a fairy tale. 

In the past few years, we've stayed in half a dozen different airbnbs, and aside from one run down apartment in Louisville, we've had amazing experiences. One such experience was in Denver, Colorado where we stayed in a guest house with a backyard and garden that we shared with the home owners. Not only was it an adorable place in a great location, but the couple gave us two free passes to the Denver Botanic Gardens.

But this isn't a post about airbnb (which I will write about later), this is about the Denver Botanic Gardens. If you ever get the chance to visit Denver, this is a MUST-SEE attraction. From their solarium, which is straight out of a fairy tale, to the Science Pyramid and the Chihuly sculptures, you can easily spend half a day in this horticultural paradise.
