  • Pretty sure it's 10* cooler in the morning than the surrounding neighborhoods. Lots of shade. I got a pass because it's a perfect place to let my 2 year old run around and explore.

Even the gift shop that is sprinkled with whimsical creations takes you to a magical serene place of wonder. This is an incredible natural escape worth a visit!
