The Garden of the Gods is a great place to spend the entire day. The rock formations look so different at different times of the day. Most of the park is a walking experience. Wear comfy shoes! You can also picnic here, so its a great place to plan a whole day.over 4 years ago
I was so shocked to arrive at the dunes and find a creek circling the dunes. We had to cross the stream before climbing the dunes, which made the whole experience surreal. It is a perfect summer day “spot”. Bring the beach chairs and spend the day in the warm sun, in a cool stream, with your toes in the sand.over 4 years ago
This museum needs more than one day if you hope to see the whole thing. I love the city in Spring and Fall – so I recommend these seasons for traveling through the city. If you plan to visit the museum, wear comfy shoes and plan to be there all day long.over 5 years ago
Really not worth staying. A definite “drive through” town. We stayed on our drive thru and nearly rolled with laughter when the hotel posted warnings that guests shouldn’t clean their motorcycles or guns with hotel towels. Nor should guests clean their “birds” in the hotel sink. This should be a sufficient warning for any guests planning to stay!over 5 years ago
We visited Philipsburg for the Sapphire “mining” that they offered. but we found the CUTEST lil town tucked into the mountains. It’s definitely work a nice visit. And if you have a spare day, stop by the Sapphire Gallery. For $25 bucks you get a bag of dirt with a cut sapphire in a packet attacked to the bag. Then an assistant will help you stage your sapphires on a screen (by washing) and flop it onto the table where you pick off the stones you find. If your lucky, you may get a few pieces you can have facetted.
We really enjoyed our visit.
BTW, we stayed at the Broadway hotel in Philipsburg. Oh my, it was a lovely place. Please visit it!over 5 years ago
Ok … this was my fourth or fifth trip to vegas… and I can’t tell you how sick I was of being hounded by Time Share nags. Now they aren’t just hawking outside on the street, but they’re in the casinos, wearing the casino employee’s uniforms, and simply hound you relentlessly every 20 feet. I was SO sick of it that it ruined my entire vacation.
It’s just me: but I won’t be going back for a while.over 5 years ago
I never knew this place was going to be as colorful and vibrant as it was; there was color and texture everywhere. We drove into Death Valley on our way to Anaheim; we didn’t stay in the park but the drive through and photographs were amazing!over 6 years ago
