The Winter Walk In Idaho That Will Positively Enchant You
There’s snow on the mountains and frosty windshields in the morning. Winter is nearly here, and the holiday season is just getting started. You may have a mental bucket list of all the things you’d like to do this winter, and this incredible winter walk should be one of them. Every year, the Idaho Botanical Garden turns into a winter wonderland and invites visitors to take a magical stroll through the lit-up garden. This yearly event, “The Winter Garden aGlow,” is one of the top winter attractions in Idaho. If you’re looking for a simply magical experience that you’ll always remember then you need to check it out!
The Idaho Botanical Garden located in Boise, Idaho is simply divine in the spring and summer. Comprised of 15 acres containing hundreds of different types of flowers and plants, the garden is a popular destination when the flowers are in full bloom. However, the garden is equally, if not more, magical during winter!
Beginning on November 23rd, the 21st annual Winter Garden aGlow will be open to the public. The garden will be showing off its 380,000 dazzling lights every night through January 1, 2018.
Thousands upon thousands of lights are artfully displayed, creating an enchanting environment as you stroll through the garden. Remember to bundle up because you're going to want to spend hours in this incredible wonderland.
Winter Garden aGlow is a perfect holiday activity for families. Bring a camera so you don't forget to capture these amazing moments. Santa makes an appearance in the garden on special nights to take note of Christmas wishes.
The Holiday Express is a G-Scale model train that makes its way through the garden. The train, provided by Southern Idaho Garden Railway Society, makes the perfect addition to this delightful holiday display.
Make your way to the Holiday Garden Gift Store when you feel like warming up for a bit.
This lovely cottage is full of all kinds of holiday decor and unique gift ideas. Every purchase you make goes to funding the Botanical Garden all year long.
Complimentary hot cocoa, cider, and cookies are available for visitors nightly. Is there anything better than strolling along this magnificent display of lights with a hot beverage in your hand?
Live holiday music is provided by local choirs on most nights, just to top it off.
A stroll through the winter garden is simply spellbinding, and the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit.
