    Great place to relax and observe nature. They have a lot of walking trails, and they're pretty easy. I had a 2-year-old with me and she kept up easily. The staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had a great time. My only complaint is the way they do booking for groups. We didn't require any staff to lead us on the trails or teach a class or anything, yet we had to book well in advance, and they made us pay for members who ended up sick the day of and couldn't come.

Staying in this area while on holiday allows you to choose from a range of affordable and comfortable lodgings just a short drive from the city's major attractions. Depending on the purpose of your visit, you may find it more convenient to stay close to the airport or near the city's amusement parks. A budget-friendly alternative, the northern suburbs offer decent accommodations and plenty of shops and restaurants.
