This is a magnificent park with so much to see. But parking is limited and cars crawl thru during the summer. Don't miss the welcome center and finish with the coffee and gift shop.

The park is open all year round, but the best time to visit is May through October. You can get out of the car and walk or just drive through and enjoy its wonders.

It's always nice to find free things to do while on vacation. Garden of the Gods did not disappoint.

Beautiful rock formations. The park is open dawn til dusk. We can't comment on the visitor center as it was closed when we were there.

You can spend as much or as little time as you want. If you don't have much time would still recommend a drive through the park

The temp was 93 when we tried to find parking. Many people came unprepared (water, hat, sunscreen, hiking shoes). All of the interesting rock formations require parking, getting out & walking.
