Be sure to check out the outside garden! Fun trails to walk through on either side of the parking lot entrance, absolutely packed with pollinator-friendly plants. If you’re lucky, you may even see one of the cute bunnies that call the space home :) Great use of a space that would normally just be boring “landscaping”. We managed to get there during a butterfly release. It was magical! And as Southerners in an arid climate, we enjoyed the humidity!

Beautiful way to see the Flat Irons! Getting into the parking lot was a little difficult and it was super crowded even on a Monday. Apparently you are also expected to pay for parking via an app, but we didn’t notice the signs until we were leaving — they are super tall with tiny writing and not in every section of the parking area. Pretty confusing! Other than that, it was a nice stop and a great place to get in a few walking miles and photo ops. We went in August and there were still a bunch of pretty wildflowers :)

Nice stop! Beautiful setup with large information kiosk detailing the historical significance. Reading the other reviews, I’m sad we didn’t venture further into town. Next time!

Easy to find and there were a few parking spots nearby if you don’t mind walking a little ways. Not sure why people are complaining about the location — it’s an open space near an intersection, pretty typical of a statue :) Love the idea behind the statue! My only concern is that she’s due for another coat of paint soon. Other than that, a cute quick stop!

Easy entry, no gate or locked areas when we went. Cool place for unique photo ops, though it was completely covered in trash. Pretty sad that the city isn’t doing anything to restore it. Looked like there was a similar property across the street that was in better condition but not accessible.

Fun photo op! Impressive in size and beautifully detailed up close. We parked right by it and walked right up to it.

Very good food and an interesting history! Our appetizer and entrees were delicious, and the beer obviously was excellent, being a Bavarian restaurant. Not very busy on a Saturday night in August so we enjoyed a quiet dinner. Small outside area and lots of parking out to the side.

This place is INSANE! If you have adventurous kids, they will love it! I have no idea how they pass city code with all the caged tunnels and things (some soaring high onto the domed roof, eek!), but it is beyond impressive. It is fun for adults too just walking around, grabbing a drink, enjoying some art — and if you’re small enough, perhaps even going through the cages and slides yourself. There is also a floor where they’ve lovingly salvaged architectural pieces (some absolutely gigantic) from 1800s era buildings that were demolished.

Cute photo op if you’re already in town :)

I submitted a review already, but forgot to mention: this candy store is a great place to get postcards of ALL the “world’s largest” items in Casey!
