River of lights was very pretty. The overwhelming crowd and stand still foot traffic was disappointing for the price.

I have been many times and always enjoy it. The Japanese garden is my favorite area. The Aquarium is entertaining and it is fun to see the sharks and other tropical fish.

The Botanical garden component of this complex is well worth a visit. Even in the dead of winter, the 35acre site is interesting. This is a sprawling garden, full of loops and side gardens. There is a Rio Grande farm site replica of the horse...More
