Garden of the Gods was beautiful and educational. But I wouldn’t recommend it for families, because the kids would probably get bored. Garden of the Gods is a 700 acre park with huge, odd-shaped, sandstone rock formations. There is a big learning center in the park. It gives you information on the history of the park, native Americans that lived in the area, and the local wildlife. There is also a nice gift shop.
What I enjoyed most about the park is the rock formations and landscape of the area. It was beautiful. A bad thing about Garden of the Gods is that there was a lot of traffic on the roads that went through the park. So it was hard to take your time and look at all the rocks and stuff. Garden of the Gods was over all a nice trip. But it’s something you only would want to do if you really didn’t have anything to do. That is the only reason I went there anyway.

Garden of the Gods is one of the most beautiful spots in Colorado. The red rocks and the formations they make are amazing. You can drive through the park or park and walk around in several areas. There's a trading post located within the park that has wonderful souvenirs and a great cafe. The visitors' center is located at the park entrance and is great. Take the time to watch the video, "Where did these red rocks come from?" It only costs $2, and it's very interesting. Make sure to see Balanced Rock. It's quite a sight.

Climbers also enjoy this area, as the rocks provide many natural handholds and provide a good abrasive surface on which to climb as well. The park is also completely free, one of its best features.

Just a note: first and foremost, entrance to the park is free, which of course is a plus for anyone budget-minded. Second of all, unless you wish to spend the prices that the visitor center charges for a somewhat small lunch, bring it if at all possible. Trust me, you’ll save some money.
