Nestled in the heart of downtown Denver is an urban oasis filled with bright colors, fragrant smells and peaceful benches – the Denver Botanic Gardens. And with thousands of possible beautiful subjects to inspire your creativity, a self-guided Denver Botanic Gardens photo tour is tons of fun for budding photographers!
Even if you aren’t an avid photographer, you can get lost for hours walking down the different paths filled with various types of plants. Or just sit by the pond and read a book, have a picnic or paint if you’d like. A favorite pass-time of ours, is to stroll hand-in-hand while we enjoy the atmosphere!
They even host concerts and other events throughout the year. And an annual pass is only $65 for an “individual plus” pass. This allows you to bring one guest with you on every visit. Plus you get three additional guest passes. A great deal to have a beautiful, go-to date night all year! But enough talk, just check out some of these gorgeous photos…
P.S. The beauty isn’t over when summer ends, the Christmas lights in winter are pretty amazing too! We look forward all year to getting to see the gardens lit up in colorful lights. It is super fun and festive!
