It doesn’t matter if you are fascinated by plants of all kinds or you just love to take a stroll through gorgeous gardens, the University of Idaho Arboretum and Botanical Garden will become your paradise. This beautiful 63-acre destination is home to thousands of plants, remarkable water features, a well-maintained trail, and so much more. In fact, it is one of our favorite locations in the Gem State and you will want to check it out.
The arboretum is open from dawn to dusk each day and admission is free. You can access an arboretum map on the University of Idaho website.
