Best Green Break

Idaho Botanical Garden

Editors' Picks

It's not everywhere that a desolate landscape below the walls of an imposing historic prison can be turned into a verdant patch filled with manicured flora and groomed walking paths. But that's part of the charm of the botanical garden, where staff and volunteers have transformed the area into a showcase of plant life and where visitors can lose themselves in greenery. Maybe the former prisoners could have been better reformed if the garden had been there when the penitentiary was still in use.
