    This is a museum where old aircraft has been reconstructed to the point where they actually can fly. At least that's what have been told during the guided tour.. More interesting for me was the extensive coverage of all regions of the war.

    This is a top notch zoo with an outstanding, passionate staff who are very visible and knowledgeable. So frequently, I search for someone to answer questions but not here. Volunteers and keepers alike readily engage guests, even while doing clean up duty.

    Admission is timed and cost is in line with most zoos. Admission does include access to the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. Parking is free.

    The zoo has beautiful grounds but is challenging hiking both due to altitude and grade. Be prepared to get a work out and take your time getting around. Be aware, there is current ongoing construction for expansion/new habitats so there is some noise and the bears aren't visible at this time. As they say, 'pardon our dust while we grow'.

    There are many unique opportunities to experience different enrichment and educational presentations. Check the schedule for the day. Not to be missed is the giraffe feeding. This is unique in that no one's constantly saying 'Don't touch the giraffe' or telling you how to feed them. Some even appear to crave a little head scratch. Don't miss the opportunity to feed snacks to Jumbe, the black rhino, or Lucky, the elephant. (Just remember you're not paying for the lettuce and carrot. You're supporting the conservation effort here at the zoo and around the world). These are just a few of the experiences you can partake in.

    The meerkats and their meerkittens are always fun to watch...they have two litters of youngsters right now. You also might get a look at two 'new' joeys in Australia Walk About. Expansive elephant yard and state-of-the-art barn. Rocky Mountain Wild is an awesome section devoted to area wildlife. Don't miss the mountain goats. Maybe Blanca will be posing at the top of the mountain for you. All in all, an outstanding zoo to spend the day at.

    My wife was a little sceptical of a magic show in a strip mall. But, we were both quickly impressed with the theater and especially with Cosmo's charisma and his amazing skill.
    We plan to being friend back to be amazed with us.

    We’ve been here a few times in the last couple years I believe five years ago we were in the church and it was beautiful. I cannot believe it is under construction still. The grounds nice and there’s lots of fun things to see inside.

    Red Rock Canyon is six minutes drive from gorgeous Garden of the Rocks, so if you have some time, give it a shot. The trails are versatile, short and very beautiful: climb a little and you will see the green valley below adorned with red cliffs.

    The parking lot is large and Red Rock Canyon is free to explore.

    Amazing drive! Gorgeous! The trail was icy but we went up the road and hiked on the gold road trail. The falls are beautiful and it's worth it just for the drive up!

    Went during the week at 2pm
    Many of the athletes were out of town at events or on a break but our guide made sure we could see and learn as much as possible .it was interesting to see the training facilities . He shared many interesting facts and stories .
    There is inside and outside walking from building to building . We were able to see the boxers training and the Paralympic women’s basketball teams practicing . Swimmers were just arriving for afternoon practice as our tour was ending . No right or wrong time to go as team schedules change . We were pleased with our tour . If you are interested in the Olympics or it’s history - highly recommend .

    Fun places to shop and eat in this area. The street was wider than I expected with 2 lanes both directions, so not as 'quaint' as I had expected, but loved to browse the shops and enjoy a good walk.

    This park has some pretty steep and rugged trails, as well as gorgeous scenery. But parking is very limited, especially at popular trailheads, so get there early if you go.

    This was very nice, although I recommend going in the evening when they light up the falls. It’s much prettier then. But still beautiful anytime.

    I went in with my husband not expecting much as it was a free museum, but I was pleasantly surprised and impressed! I learned so much about both the Penrose family as well as the history of the Race to the Clouds.
    The exhibits were very well presented and there was a lot of interesting information to learn.
    I’m so happy we made the time for this place!
