  • Fantastic place to take your kids in December. We always go as a Christmas tradition. Lights a are very well set up. They also have a train station with a small scale Village th at the train runs around. Make sure to look for the cross at Table Rock which oversees the lights from the north eastern Horizon. The lights also give a chance for Idaho inmates to do something constructive over Christmas as they are the ones that set them up and take them down afterward.
  • The botanical gardens are always a treat to walk through, whether it be spring, summer, fall, or winter. They do a great job of making each season unique, and work to make sure each visit has something new even when the plants are dormant. There is plenty to see, and the paths are friendly to all ages. I highly recommend seeing each season.
  • I love going to the garden a glow, but I'm a little upset this year. Paid $80 to get in (outrageous to be honest), and a lot of why we went was to get a pic of the kids with Santa. When we got to the tent, the people running it said they would take a pic and email it to us. Well we never got a pic and when we contacted them they said they had no idea who they were? These people were running the tent to see santa! When you charge people that much to get into YOUR EVENT, shouldn't you know who you're allowing to be apart of it and interact with your guests? Not happy!
  • Terrible experience. The lights that are suppose to be wonderful are nothing more then lights strung up on a fence that lead you nowhere. Nothing spectacular or visually appealing. The pathways were so slippery multiple people fell over. Very unsafe considering there are stairs, uneven pathways and slopes. Definitely not worth $12 a person, I highly recommend saving your money and going elsewhere
  • Had a really nice girls night out walking through Winter Aglow. It is a little pricey just for a walk around a garden and I wouldn't be able to afford to take my family but it was beautiful. Caldwell lights are pretty impressive too, and they are free. Still, I give it 4 stars because I had a good time.
