Green Bay Botanical Gardens
This weekend, we went to the Green Bay Botanical Gardens. It was the first time I have been there. I was surprised at the level of enjoyment I received by going. It was very hot, in the upper 80's and low 90's so we had the place to ourselves most of the time. We wandered the trails, looked at the plants, tried to pronounce their names, took pictures, watched birds, admired the structures, went down to the water, commented, and expressed wishes. It was a wonderful time as the cares of the week faded and we were able to go away refreshed and invigorated. The cost was only $7 per person. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you have a botanical garden near you, I highly recommend visiting it at least once. It may even be a good idea to visit once per year.
What have you visited recently that turned out better than you expected?
