I visited a bunch of these sorts of gardens - it's nice, but not spectacular. Hit the garden if you have time and it's a nice day, otherwise go farther - McCall, for example, for nature.

Not much blooming yet, but this allowed us to see the sculptural elements much better. Like the historical aspect of the Lewis & Clark botanical area.

Went for the light show at Christmas, it was gorgeous, very well executed. Cant wait to go back in the spring to see the grounds in daylight.

I'm spoiled now! Love this venue to see a concert at Outlaw Field. It's a beautiful setting for fun.

I've been going to IBG for over 20 years. Nestled at the base of the old Idaho Penitentiary, it's a great way spend an afternoon in history and nature.

A beautiful green oasis in a typically brown portion of the Boise foothills. A great spot for a wedding - I should know!

We actually visited this site for both a harvest festival and the Winter Garden Aglow. During the Fall the flowers and gardens were in full bloom and I was able to take beautiful photos of my daughter and niece. The winter is filled with lights on everything and is amazing! We bought hot chocolates and walked through the gardens enjoying... More

Regardless of whether you are visiting for a concert or a IBG event, they do a great job. With as much as IBG has going on, I believe we'll be joining as members in 2015. Absolutely worth it.

We visited Boise in December. Our hosts had organized tickets to Winter Garden aGlow. It was a wonderful experience. Multi-colored lights are threaded along walkway fences and in tree and bush branches creating a wonderland. There were also model trains, fire pits, cookies, hot chocolate and cider.
