Garden of the Gods was named one of the nation’s top “unheralded attractions” by tripadvisor.com.
The city-owned park claimed the No. 2 spot on the online travel community list of the top five free attractions in the country.
“Its name does not overstate the beauty and scale of this impressive sight,” the report said. “The Garden of the Gods is home to some of the most uniquely beautiful sandstone rock formations in the country and affords incredible views of Colorado’s famous Pikes Peak mountain behind the stunning red giants of the park.”
The sunset from Mallory Square in Key West was No. 1 on the list. The scenic Cliff Walk in Newport, R.I. was number three. Others on the list included the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah.
